I did it again!!!!!
This is a bit of a silly entry; feel free to skip it if you want, but do check at the bottom for the amount paid for items listed on my last post.
I am a bit (a lot) OCD. I don't have the extremes (yet) of it (and I'm not making fun of anyone that might) but I do have my routines and my likes. Dishes set up a certain way in the dishwasher (yes I change them after hubby stacks them; he doesn't "get" the way they should go, the natural flow so to speak.)
I like my paper towels to look like this. And no I don't like patterned paper towels. Solid basic white.
This is not how I like my paper towels to look. The pick a size (who invented that and why????)
99.5% of the time I am very careful when we need paper towels and make sure I don't buy the "pick a size" ones. But there are times when I'm stressed or overwhelmed with shopping that I'm 0.5% not careful.
And I pick the wrong size. I did it again a few weeks ago.
There's not much of a difference in size between the two. But really, which one would you prefer to use? The pristine one on the bottom or the dreaded pick a size on top?
This is how they look when they are separated. Really horrid (in my opinion).
And really, what can you do with a paper towel this size? Useless (again in my opinion).
What generally happens is I end up breaking off 3 half pieces or a piece and a half when I only want the regular basic size of paper towel and waste that extra 1/2.
Drives me crazy!
So when I realized I bought the wrong size a few weeks ago, the minute I did I said "I'll give them to son........he won't mind."
So when son and family came over later that week for dinner I greeted him with 5 rolls of paper towels in bags and said "this is your lucky day." Being on a tight budget, indeed it was a good day for them.
And when I went to the store that week, you betcha. I made sure I didn't get pick a size.
Life is good (at least until I use up the 6 rolls I bought).
Are you a fan of pick a size?
(And to answer on my last post about what we spent for the clothes; the grand total with tax was $41 and change. I was surprised with the various amounts guessed. Some of you came very close or spot on. I think there was only one or two items we bought that weren't reduced 50%. The next sale is this Saturday. Got to talk it over with them and see what is needed to concentrate what I should be looking for. I'm thinking to look for more books; the wee one really enjoys looking through them and while we have some, you can never have too many books :)
The pool water was 63 degrees as of 03/03/2017, 65 degrees as of 03/08/2017. Went up 2 degrees in 5 days. We're warming up here (high 80s). I'm thinking the water might be ready end of April for swimming??? Time will tell.
