Todays buzz-phrase

This phrase came up at a planning pre-meeting this afternoon: “Distress purchase”

Apparently, this is what those small, late-night stores are for.  Common distress purchases are bread, milk, chocolate and fags.

    At least ‘distress purchases’ are relatively cheap and they fulfil a want rather than ‘grudge purchases’ which tend to be expensive and fulfil a need rather than a want.
