Sooo... a few years ago I decided to stock up on soap.
Because of my allergies I have troubles with just about anything other than clear unscented glycerin soap, but it makes me a little bit crazy that you can only buy the stuff in small 4 ounce bars wrapped in plastic. I don't like the fact that it comes in plastic, I don't like that the bars are so small, and I don't like that it costs twice as much as the cheap smelly stuff.
Anyhow, I found a big box of the stuff online a few years ago and it worked out great... well mostly great. It was still in small bars that were wrapped in plastic, but it was much cheaper than buying the bars individually and I didn't have to worry about running out.
Well... for a few years anyhow, But since I'm down to just a few bars left, I decided it was time to go stock up again.
But this time, I discovered that I could get a significantly better price if I bought the stuff in a big block. So I compared my options and did my math and ended up ordering a 25 pound box of soap.
Sooo... it arrived today and, well... 25 pounds turns out to be um... a tad bit bigger than I had been anticipating!
Oh my. So I spent my morning chopping soap and wrapping it in some old butcher paper that I had been saving from some other stuff that I ordered online. And here you have it:
Holy Moly! I hope soap doesn't go bad! Well, I never claimed to be sane.
Now y'all can laugh if you want to, but when the zombie apocalypse comes and people are fighting in the streets over that last bar of soap... who'll have the last laugh then?
Well anyhow, at least the zombies won't have to clean me off before they make lunch out of me!
So has anybody else out there ever gone a tad bit overboard when stocking up?
