Before I talk about tonight's post I want to remind you that it's the LAST day for you to enter to win a free book HERE and HERE. There aren't many entries so you still have a chance to win something. Even if you don't read- it's one Christmas gift off your list. You can thank me later.
So we know I'm on the couponing bandwagon. And I would by lying if I said I didn't want to have 8 foot high shelves full of stuff. Because I do. I love opening new packages and I like feeling like I could get some new toothpaste whenever I want to. Not that I would waste, but just knowing that I could waste is kind of an awesome feeling. So let's take a gander at my stockpiles which are spread through the house because my husband is slow on getting my shelving up. Considering it's taken 6 years of begging and I still don't have a functioning laundry sink, I have a feeling I'll be sleeping with cereal under my bed in no time.
First up, let's check out my upstairs linen closet. These boxes are full of toothpaste/toothbrushes, first aid, over the counter medicines and miscellaneous odds & ends.
But I'm basically becoming a clean food hoarder.
Speaking of hoarders- folks.... did you SEE last night's episode? The woman with all of the dolls? She kept laughing hysterically and I was kind of scared of her. But she had a mentally handicapped son who was even telling her that she has a problem. Now, if you have a mentally handicapped person telling you there is something wrong with you, that's kind of significant. She even had a "doll hospital" and would fix dolls and amputate and yeah. It was just too much.
The other woman featured basically shit her pants and left the poop pads everywhere. I couldn't even watch it because I was just that horrified. Honestly. Where the fuck are these people's family? I'm telling you, if I came to visit my mom and she had piles of crap everywhere and started peeing in bottles? Shit would be getting real. Like, nursing home real. There comes a point where a family person has to intervene for the welfare of someone else. Good lord. I can't even believe you see families bitching over who gets the house or whatever while ma is sitting in filth. Because at the end of the day? Who CARES who gets the house? It isn't habitable, it'd have to be bull dozed anyway. Good lord. People are really terrible sometimes. You don't become a hoarder over night, it's a build up over time and for these people to not step in before? Not ok. Truly. And it's just sad really.
