Promised myself I would never do this


What is it, you may ask? When I was still living at home, it would drive me crazy when my mom would fill up the soap dispenser with water to make that last little bit of soap accessible. Why? Not knowing any better, I purely thought it was cheap. Why couldn't you just buy new soap? Why try to use it all??
Now I get it. Groceries are expensive and I want to get every last drop out of everything we buy. I'm turning into my mother.

I went out in a baseball cap last week -- just to Target early in the morning -- and remembered I needed some sunglasses. So there I was, trying on huge sunglasses with baseball hat firmly in place when I looked at myself in the mirror and it occured to me that I looked exactly like my mother. I bought the glasses, but will wear them sans cap from now on! :)

Hey Morgandy....I was reading your older post and I took prenatal vitamins the walgreens type for a while, then i stopped taking them all together, however I did have a problem with the cord, but I don't know if its not taking the prenatal vitamins or not, my cousin is a nurse, has had 2 babies and never took hers and was fine...but the walgreens ones are the only ones that never made me feel sick....also I wish I would've kept running while I was preggo...its killing me now, and next time I will continue to run. So I applaud you, you're making the right decision! Best of luck!

OK the soap thing---it gets worse. It spreads into shampoo and conditioner and milk. I water down my kids juice to make it last longer. I am like conservy serverton anymore. Miss you!! And Love you. Lynn

I do that with my spray gel. I actually like it better with a little water in it. Less sticky.

I know I catch my self saying phrases my mom says that drive me crazy. I said one not too long ago and my brother was with me and right after I said it I turned to him and said " Oh my I just sounded like Mom, didn't I" That was the moment I knew that I was really turning into my mother. What a scary realization. I mean don't get me wrong I could turn into worse but that is still a scary thing for anyone.
