I don’t use as much as I think I do

A couple of years ago I was reading an online forum and found someone had written that a roll of glad wrap (cling film) lasts them nearly a year.  I scoffed, and wrote the date on the next roll I started.  
I finished it 14 months later.
Since then I’ve become more mindful about how long things do last us.  Dishwasher powder and dishwashing liquid each last two months.  So does a 500mL bottle of olive oil.  A stick of deodorant lasts me four of five months, and shampoo and conditioner lasts longer.  
As it turns out I don’t need to buy bulk items, or jump on buy-two-and-save deals.  Just what we need.   Not having to find space to store the extras is better than the money saved.

  1. I love the idea of putting the date on purchases. I'm going to start doing that when possible.


Say something!

(But if you have nothing nice to say, you're best saying nothing at all.)
