Sorry but I had the urge to create a nonsensical thread! tongue.gif

So how often in life do you take the "extras" when you buy something?

Examples could be in a restaurant when you're asked if you'd like to go large for an extra 50p, extra sauce with your meal or extra toppings on your pizza.

Other non-food examples could be when you take out insurance or breakdown cover and there are extra things you can choose to add to your policy.

Or perhaps you've purchased an expensive product from a manufacturer such as Apple and they try to sell you AppleCare to protect your new purchase against accidental damage.

I imagine there's lots of other relevant examples but I'll leave it open for general discussion! wink.gif

I always have to resist the temptation to go large at fast food/coffee places, at the time I usually think "it's only 40p, 40p is nothing", but doing that around twice a week for a year stacks up to nearly 50! Definitely one of my 'Resolutions' for 2017 is to resist the urge to go supersize on my food and drink.

Tbh Lotti is my added extra in life, not really necessary but I appreciate that she's there xoxo

I don't really get extras often food wise unless it's upgrading to stuffed crust pizza *.*

I choose extras before I go to the counter, never when they ask me after I've ordered

This is so me as well laugh.gif At McDonalds I never get chips because I get full on nuggets or selects alone. So no, I wouldn't like fries with that. Plus I never usually get starters at restaurants as I'm too full from the main course. Well, except Nando's but I only get one starter when normal people get two. So if anything I am a 'less is more' person, at least with food haha.

One thing I did do was pay extra on Amazon last night for a gift to come the next day laugh.gif Which is my fault for being badly organised this time round. That's the main example I can think of haha, my own pondering over gifts that I leave too late - so have to pay extra for them to come in time when I would've saved money by just being more organised.

In hubbox you can pay like 1.50 or sth for pulled pork and jalapenos on your cheesy fries and it is a true thing of beauty <3

I'm sometimes disgusted at how much some of my friends eat, I mean do you want to have to be rolled out of your house every day in 10 years time?

Did the same for my new iPad Pro! Treating ourselves the right way, tbh.

I sometimes add the warranty on electrical items, but no other extras for me.

I usually go for the extras. It really doesn't bother me spending that little bit extra. There is nothing worse than someone in my work refusing to pay for a bag though and walking away juggling 26 burgers.

I always do the add an extra burger thing. I won't pay to have my chips 'triple cooked' though, that's such a con.

When it comes to starters, I usually do sharing ones.
