A new low amongst many, many lows. But here I am carrying my lunch back to the office from the local Tesco Express, having loaded a sandwich, a banana and a price-reduced Hoisin Duck Sushi Taster pack into a dog poo bag which I found in my coast pocket.
An unused dog poo bag, because I'm not some sort of animal.
On this - the third day of the government's new tax on single-use plastic bags from supermarkets - I have made a substantial saving of five new pence.
I'd treat myself to something utterly luxurious, but even penny chews are probably 10p each these days.
