I was at the grocery store, and saw these potatoes – washed, prepped and all ready for the microwave. No need to make vents in the plastic or poke the potatoes or anything – just microwave on high for 5 minutes, or 7-10 minutes for two of them. The cost: 68 cents each.
Next to them I saw a 5-pound bag of potatoes. The price was $1.49 for the whole bag. The 5-pound-bag was obviously a better deal. So, who would buy the more expensive shrink-wrapped ones? Someone too lazy to wash and poke a couple potatoes? Someone who didn’t want to deal with the remaining four-and-a-half pounds of them? Someone who’d put them in the pantry until they gathered fruit flies, or sprouted, or both?
Oh yeah. Me.
Sometimes you can’t put a price on convenience.
