See this? This is my addiction and it is spiraling out of control. That cabinet hangs above our toilet and Sweety happened to open it the other day when he was taking a whiz. He then wanted to know if I was stocking up for a nuclear war. Because you know that bath items and smelly wax things would be hard to find afterwards. (If you'd like to more closely examine my secret shame, you can click that photo to big it up.)
All that soap stacked in the right corner? It's gonna take us months to use all of that. Yet, I still want to order more. But I am fighting the urge. Most of it was purchased from Capella's Garden. They have a clearance section where you can buy a bundle of random soap for $5 and right now shipping on anything is 4.95. I have a coupon (DEAL - if you want to start a soap problem) for 10% off. They only have 5 more bundles left. I have been looking at those for 2 day, dying to buy them all. But really, where the hell am I going to put them? (The temptation was too great and I went to the site to see how much it would be to buy them all. 26.20 with the discount. Okay, I'm really clicking away from that page and not going back for awhile.) Sweety may send me to rehab if he starts finding soap stashed in other places. Sometimes they have bundles of bath bombs on sale in the same manner and I have been hitting their page an ungodly number of times per day to try and catch that because I wouldn't be able to help myself and would buy them all.
There are other things in the cabinet that I have a huge yearning for also. Those little white sacks? They are asprin shaped wax melts and I love them and want to have their tiny, round, sweet smelling babies. They are just the right size to chop in half and put in my wax melter and the smell lasts for around a week or so of pretty much continuous use. But I already have 10 of them. That's at least 3 months of good smell in the house and how far in advance do I really need to plan?
I feel that I must say this - I don't get anything from talking about these places. I have even tried to convert my neighbor to the soap. I called him over here and gave him some lotion for his granddaughters and a bar of Ginger Bubbles Soap. He asked me what was the soap for and I exclaimed (with a feverish look in my eye) "It is the greatest soap ever it's made from goat's milk and smells great and I think EVERYONE should use it so I'm giving it to you to become addicted to!!!" He slowly backed out of the house while thanking me and sprinted down the sidewalk.
And all of those links under the "Spend Your Pennies" sidebar title? I really buy stuff from all of those places. Um, except for the NKOTB one. I'm just monitoring that site to see if they happen to come close to me with their new tour. And then I'm going. (Wow, this post really reveals what a nerd I am.) I didn't get to see them when I was a kid and dammit, I will go this time around!
