More than any consumable item that costs money, it loathes me to finish juice that I buy. Orange, apple, cranberry, it doesn’t matter. I have a barrier around finishing juice and buying more. When the container starts to get empty, I start talking myself out of having juice in favor of water. Maybe add a little lemon to the water, to class it up.
This is ironic, because I likely have this barrier because water reaches the same end as juice, yet is free. But, when I have juice, I often end up convincing myself to drink water.
Eventually I will finish my juice, and I’ll want more but won’t want to spend more to get it. Water’s right there, in the tap. But ater a few weeks of drinking just water, I’ll get bored with it, give in and buy more. It’s completely illogical: I’ll easily spend $5 on a container of gourmet olives, but not $3.50 on juice. Barriers like this fascinate me.
Perhaps I should just go buy a juicer and make my own.
