Hi! Nope, not dead. Lost FireFox again (silly me, daring to reboot my computer), but it’s found. Yea!
Anyway, I am posting today to tell you all something you all already know:
I am completely loony-toon compulsive. I figured it out when I was counting the number of bottles of hand soap and hit a dozen.
And then there’s the fact that I cannot say no when the grocery store has those Crystal Light single serving packets BOGO, as they do this week. I have four boxes of them in my desk at work for when I drink water and Gene has a ton of them at home as well. (I only drink the lemonade kind because of course I am very picky).
And then there’s the ridiculous number of rolls of paper towels. I bought two big packages of them at CVS trying to earn ExtraCare bucks and then I had coupons and the grocery store had them on sale during Triple Coupon weekend for 4 big rolls for $7 and ohhh, I cannot resist. (I love the big rolls of paper towels versus the smaller rolls in the multi-packs, but still, ExtraCare bucks are ExtraCare bucks).
And then there’s the personal care items. Gene and I are both set for deoderant for the next year, easily. And if by some mystery I manage to get pregnant during our Clomid-Free Spring, aww, geez. I hear that some stores will let you exchange diapers for the next size up, but will they let you trade, say, a dozen pregnancy tests and (wait for it, TMI) maxipads for the diapers in the spirit of “Oh, who knew?” if you shrug adorably?
On the bright side, I am down to about a half dozen bottles of my beloved All Small & Mighty Free & Clear and a few botles of Downy and I haven’t begun to panic yet. And I did successfully tell myself “NO!” when I was reading this week’s CVS ad and came upon a deal wherein if you buy a bottle of the new Softsoap body wash, you pay $3.99 and you get $3.99 back in ExtraCare bucks. That means it would be FREE.
(Now, if it turns out there’s a coupon for the stuff in the paper, the body wash is better than free and all bets are off…)
