I proudly admit I have a bit of a shopping addiction this time of year. Why? What do you mean WHY?! I admit I was at Walmart before 7am on December 26. Anything and everything holiday is half price after Christmas. THIS is where the hoarding comes in to play. I paid $2.25 for gift sets with battery powered Hello Kitty toothbrushes and full sized toothpaste. I didn't buy one or two...I bought ten. WHY? Just a kid's toothbrush is $4.00+ or more. Same goes for shampoo and conditioner, body wash, lotion, lip gloss, cheap make up, razors and shaving gel, perfume, nail polish... the list goes on. Gift sets = half price = DEAL!! I won't have to buy any bath stuff for quite some time.
Then yesterday, we made a quick trip to Target. 70% off almost everything. Jackpot!! Even the $1 spot Christmas items were $.30. How can you pass up crafts, stickers, window clings, etc. for a mere thirty cents?! The regular Christmas stuff...they had blankets, throw pillows, lights, door mats, stockings, trees, and ornaments galore. And using a Target card is another 5% off..so... the $90 that I spent was regular price near $300.
And I admit.... to top off what I already have, at Bath and Body Works today I got 12 bottles of body wash and a few hand sanitizers. Now before you say that is crazy, keep in mind there are three of us that use this stuff daily. So we do use a lot of it!! Some of them were as low as $2.75. I had a $10 off coupon AND by using my Discover card I will get 5% cash back.
So yes.... I am hoarding bath products!!!! Is it really hoarding though?? They are consumable and we WILL use them. Yes, I know you probably think I am totally nuts. BUT don't come crying to me when you are out of shampoo or need a new razor because it is mine... all mine!!!
