packaging tapes are expensive

While getting some necessary stationary at Officeworks today, I also looked for clear packaging tapes, the one that is 48mm wide and 50m long version. I was flabbergasted by the price tag: $4.50-something for one (1) roll. (to Don: because Antony is cheap, he finds that extremely expensive.)

I looked around the shelf, the same Scotch brand, same packaging tapes available in 6-pack for $23.21. Which makes each roll slightly less than $4.00. I was deciding if I should just get one or get the six pack.

I picked up the six-pack version, Laurent said that we did not need that many. I responded Don would have bought the six-pack version. Well, we would use up all the six rolls of the packaging tapes sooner or later.

Later, I kept walked further into the shop, and saw the generic brand of packaging tapes (same 48mm wide 5m long) also available in 6-packs. The price for generic brand one is just under $20. Did I change to generic brand? No.

So here Don has it: Antony shops in Don's style! Antony is cheap!

BTW, The clothing tapes (a kind of Don's favourite duct tape) are even more expensive then the packing tapes. They cost more than $20 for a roll at Officeworks.
