Murphy's Law of Shopping

I have always had a theory -- I call it "Murphy's Law of Shopping." I'm sure you know this one.

Whatever you buy, whenever you buy it, it will go on sale or you'll find an applicable coupon immediately after your purchase.

Imagine my delight when made "Murphy's Law of Shopping" work in my favor.
