So the Smart One and I went shopping yesterday. We’re gearing up for Easter and needed some stuff.
Actually, we haven’t been shopping in a while and since we were out of napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, etc….like LITERALLY out of them, we decided we had no choice but to go to wally-world.
It started out pretty good until we got to the section where you purchase things to help you wash your clothes AND make them smell good.
And herein lies the problem…
They have apparently discontinued the brand of laundry soap that we use. I’m not sure if it’s just wally world that discontinued it, or the world as we know it, but…it means I either run around looking for it, or I find myself another soap. This kind of sucks since the Drama Queen has allergies and seems to be having a relapse of skin sensitivity right now, so…
…I start to look for a new soap.
And then I realize that not only has my soap been discontinued, but apparently they are also no longer carrying the Bounce bar! I love that thing!
Now I’m faced with another dilemma…do I run around now looking for soap and a dryer thingy, or do I just face the fact that I need to re-think the way I do laundry?
And this is where it leads into a lengthy discussion in the laundry aisle of wally world…
Why, oh why, can’t the manufacturer of laundry soap ALSO be the manufacturer of dryer sheets and fabric softener?
I mean, if that were the case, the laundry soap would have the SAME SCENT as the dryer sheet, right? Wouldn’t it make sense to purchase the soap and sheets of the same brand and same smell?
Because really….I just want it to smell pretty and fresh.
So, I after a lot of discussion and debate on this subject with my son, we finally decided on the following:
Tide Spring Meadow and Snuggle Blue Iris. We’re hoping they are somewhat similar so that we don’t end up with our clothes smelling weird.
I still think that Tide needs to make some dryer sheets…or Snuggle needs to make some laundry soap.
Actually, I think that Wally World needs to stop discontinuing my other stuff so I don’t have to deal with something new.
I’m Just Sayin’
Cause you see how change affects me these days….
