      I really dislike when they have a sale and you have to spend x amount of
      dollers to get the sale. I still shop those sales sometimes though, and do
      some stock up on stuff that either never goes on sale, or stuff that I need
      anyways. One year when my store had turkeys cheep with a minimum $10
      purchase, I still spent enough stocking up to buy 9 turkeys — on 9 separate
      trips. I stocked up on stuff like toilet paper, personal care items,
      cleaning stuff, and some staples, most of which were on sale and I needed
      anyways.
