Someone needs to step in and slap me.
I have gone over the edge--with the dish soap. I went to Wal-Mart, in search of the .97 cent bottles of Gain Dish Soap.
I know. I know. I am blushing as I type...and for a brown skinned Mexican girl that's not an easy task. But I was on the tail end of my seemingly endless supply of Gain coupons and I could not pry them from my hot little hand.
So I went to spend the Gift Card I won here and get something for my kids, because they are good kids and I wanted to splurge on them. Well when I got there I told myself "No I am not going down the dish soap aisle, I DO NOT need to go down that aisle..." but then we happened to peruse the girls clothes and that's SORT OF close to the dish soap/cleaner aisle so I seriously felt the pull of the universe to go down that aisle and just "check". Bonnie just rolled her eyes when I said I want to go down this aisle "real quick", she may be young but she knows her mama has been stalking the dish soap aisle in every store we have gone into lately.
They had Gain Dish Soap in stock.
A lot. More than I have coupons. Tons more.
Call it animal magnetism, call me a crazy coupon stockpile hoarder, I dunno. But I bought 12 more, and came home and traded the remainder of my coupons on my coupon trading forum I use. (Check that forum out here if you are interested. Its a smaller forum but I really like it.)
There, its off my chest.
Still feeling embarrassed but I DO feel better that I traded the coupons. It was like the curse of the lottery with those coupons. I am glad they are out of my house. ; )
The Air Freshener I just bought because Jet Pilot was in dire need of some refreshment in his truck to get that "smell" out (imagine a fragrant mixture of a Jet Pilot who has spent the last few hours on overdrive with sweat glands, adrenaline and leather seats that only 2384793 other Jet Pilots have sat in before him doing heavens only knows in those seats, Jet Fuel, and Big Black Jet Pilot Boots )! Yeah, I welcome that home everyday...its nice. I love it. I really do. I just like to give him a hard time.
