  1. Wow! Glad you have an emergency fun! And yes, I never get out of costco in under 3 digits. But I haven't had to buy laundry detergent in MONTHS and my toilet paper lasts forever, too.

  2. Melissa,
    This post is Hilarious! I loved it and I love you!

  3. When I got home, I realized the t.p. I bought had a ton more rolls than I thought :) It should last awhile.

    Les, I love you too! And was so sad I missed out seeing you yesterday! But the A/C guy spent over 4 hours at our house.
