Waste Not, Want Not

Okay, so Laura B. wanted to see the stash. Well, this is only the basement overflow stash. Other things are scattered throughout the house in more convenient locations, but these are things that I don't use as often or can't give away readily. I keep a bag in my pantry for the food pantry stuff. And the toilet cleaner and Kleenex stash reside upstairs. I rarely use paper towels, so we go through them slowly, hence the basement pile. 

The rest of it is dish soap, dishwasher detergent, a zillion things of Vitamin D, deodorant, and first aid kits. I can't give away all that Vivarin to save my life and no one wants to admit that they want the poise. Or the Dulcolax. Other upstairs stashes also include a laundry room full of detergents and fabric softeners, as well as my boys' bathroom cabinet filled with Johnson & Johnson Buddy Bars.

Now, what I do NOT have is a stash of toilet paper. I have a price threshold for all products. I will not pay more than $4.50 for a 12 pack of double rolls in the toilet paper category. This can be challenging to find, so I don't actually have a stash of the two ply. The reason that I am sharing this with you is to help you understand the internal rage which bubbled up inside of me when I found two rolls of brand new toilet paper which had been dunked into the toilet and hastily hidden in the bathroom trash can tonight.

SOMEONE will be using those two rolls of toilet paper. Oh, yes. They will be used. Currently, they are drying on my kitchen counter. OH THE RAGE.
