My day off again today and I decided first thing to tidy the bathroom, it’s a right state with bottles everywhere, plus quite a few little yellow packages from Lush as all the family have taken to bathbombs in a big way.
So I thought ‘Lets get all of these bottles and bars of soap and face creams and pill bottles and mascaras and body lotions etc, etc, etc, (because no one in our house is willing to use the same brand of facial cleanser as any one else = 5 bottles) and put them all away in the little storage units I bought just for times like these’. It seemed a good idea until I opened the first drawer and found it completely full of shampoos and conditioners. ‘Must have been a multi-buy’ I thought.
The next drawer was also full, and the next – you get the idea. I started counting. I stopped when I got to 50.
FIFTY BOTTLES OF SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER!
My husband is now banned from these multi-buys, but I don’t think that will stop him, he has a problem.
‘You’ll be sorry when you run out’ he whinged. Well I’m not going to be sorry for a long time am I. I suspect banning him won’t control this obsession. He’s too far gone. Any suggestions?
PS. He used to laugh at my Mum for multi-buys and special offers, but she’s not the one who bought a lovely sale birdcage when we didn’t even have a bird – and we still get multi-buys of baby wipes – my youngest is 11. I use them on the sink!
