When the Apocalypse Comes, You Will All Be Heading To My Place for Toothpaste and Toilet Paper
Continuing my series from yesterday, I will now enlighten you, internet, as to the contents of my linen closet.
My linen closet is actually inside my "Guest Bathroom." You know, the one that looked all clean and cute and organized?
Inside my linen closet you will, of course, find linens:
And . . . well . . . some other stuff . . .
I'm not even sure what to say here. You see, I save every free sample I get, I buy everything I can on sale, preferably in bulk, and I HATE running out of things.
I know, I'm insane.
On the upside, though, when we had some Katrina evacuees (families with small children) move into our apartment complex last year with little more than their cars and the shirts on their backs, I was on their doorstep with paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, trash bags, toothpaste, toothbrushes, childproof outlet covers, and diaper wipes, all neatly organized in re-used grocery bags, less than ten minutes after I heard they'd arrived.
Then when my husband got home, I said, "See? This is why I insist on buying tubes of toothpaste in five packs! In case of hurricanes!"
