This Seasons Must-Haves... and other dread phrases in the supermarket - #TightwadDad

This Seasons Must-Haves... and other dread phrases in the supermarket



This was on my facebook feed:
"make-up bag must-haves from the likes of Sam Faiers and Christine Bleakley...."



I'm taking a wild and unfair punt that Tesco's Must-Haves aren't water, oxygen and companionship.

Must-haves.
It's terminology that's smudged over from glossy magazines into "real life".
There are signs in the stores brandishing the dread word/phrase "Must-have" in the stores now.

How about this Season's Must-Have: Long hours at work. To pay for the Must-Haves for next season.
Next season's Must-Have: Being happy with what you've got.

Sorry - saying all this in the wrong place.
