What do you think?
Did I make the wrong choice when I bought the super jumbo size tub of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter"?
Let me help you visualize the size a bit better. Here's the tub next to a cream cheese container that is the same size (8 oz) as my previous size butter tub.
I'm thinking that my logic was a bit flawed when I decided on the 45 ounce size. I thought it was smart. The super jumbo tub was on sale and only cost 50 cents more than the small size. It seemed to me to be an easy choice. The big tub would equate to over 5 of the smaller size and cost only 50 cents more. Sounds like a great deal, right?
However, the problem with my choice became evident when I got home with my purchase. Where was this gigantic tub o' butter going to fit in my refrigerator? I ended up having to rearrange an entire shelf to get the thing to fit. Of course, the arrangement I came up with meant that if/when I wanted to get out the butter, I'd have to get out several other items just to be able to pull the big guy from its spot. Sigh...
Sometimes I suppose you just shouldn't go for what seems to be the obviously better deal, huh?
