Marriage 301, Lecture 491: Penny wise, pound foolish

This is a word problem.

1. The Good Saran Wrap costs about $3 a roll. Which is less than one Beer Unit.

2. We use maybe two rolls a year. About one Beer Unit.

3. The enemy of food is air. When you freeze food, you want it completely airtight. It is a bigger sin to underwrap than to overwrap. Which would you rather do? Spend an extra two cents on the Good Saran Wrap to protect a $10 steak or save that two cents by using less Good Saran Wrap?

4. One of us freaks out about wasting paper towels, the other one thinks paper towels grow on trees. Which really, they do.

Question: Which of us thinks the other is a Good Saran Wrap Waster?

Generic plastic wrap DOES NOT CLING. It is not worth the money. One must just buy Good (aka Real) Saran Wrap.
