Saga of the Poptarts

In the spirit of "Hi! I'm back! I'm going to post more, comment more, and generally be around more, I promise!" have a silly and pointless tale:

I have an office on the third floor of my university's library. I almost always bring my lunch from home and that's usually fine, but there have been days when I've been extra hungry either too early for lunch or after eating my lunch. My solution to this has been to go down to the first floor vending machines and buy a packet of Brown Sugar Cinnamon Poptarts. Not the healthiest choice, I know, but also not the worst of my limited options. Plus, it was only once every week or two and I do like Poptarts despite their lack of any nutritionally redeeming qualities. I decided that this was rather expensive, though, as two packs from the vending machine cost about what a box of 8 would at the grocery store, so I bought a box to keep in my office. Yeah... Have I ever mentioned that I have somewhat limited impulse control? The only thing this brilliant plan of mine has accomplished is turning my once every week or two Poptart into a once every day or two Poptart which hasn't really saved money and is a bigger nutritional issue. So new plan: buy a box of Poptarts but keep them in my locker down on the first floor. Maybe having to go down then back up two flights of stairs to get the Poptarts rather than reaching over to the side of the desk will help.

Hahaha This story reminds me so much of myself.
Did it work? It wouldn't for me, I'd probably just move into my locker and work from there ;)

LOL. It's helped some. I'm probably now somewhere between the maybe once a week of the vending machine and the maybe 4 times a week of the box in the office. Up and down the stairs is something of a deterrent but only a little bit.
