Mother’s column: Collecting

I fell for it again. During the holiday, we do groceries at a supermarket that we usually never go to. "Do you collect stickers?" the cashier asks. "Sure", I say, even though I have no idea what the action is about. But I always collect everything until I discover something is useless. Because we spent more than 50 euros on groceries, we receive a large poster to put the stickers on. Usually, it costs a euro, but we get it for free now!
