Every other year, I do a Taco Bell sauce packet purge.
That’s when I toss out ALL the packets I can find in our fridge’s middle drawer. By the way, what is that middle drawer in our fridge for? Beverages? Yogurt? I’m pretty sure it’s not meant to be used as a fast food condiment drawer.
Although some are fairly new, I get rid of them because they’re thrown in the drawer haphazardly. This makes it hard to tell the difference between those that have been in there for two years and those that just got there. When I do a purge, I throw out about 50-75 packets.
How do I accumulate so many packets?
Most of the time it’s a generous Taco Bell employee who dumps a handful of sauces into my bag that’s four times more than what I need. Other times, at locations that have the sauces out in the open, my hand becomes a broken arcade claw game machine that causes everyone to win a prize and it picks up more than what I need. And, sometimes, I pick up sauce packets, but end up not using them because what I bought didn’t need any.
Recently, I did a purge, so I don’t have many packets right now, just 19.
But I feel I’m not alone when it comes to accumulating Taco Bell sauce packet, hence this Unscientific Poll. So Impulsive Buy readers, how many Taco Bell sauce packets do you have in your home right now?
