Stockpiling…paper?

I used to be a huge fan of buying in bulk. Working at the group home I went to Sam’s once a month in order to make our food budget work. I liked the savings and bought lots of my own groceries there too. In the last couple of years, though, the more invested I became in eating/buying local, the less trips I made to Costco. I was going every three or four months before I left MN. They had a few frozen organic veggies I liked and of course, popcorn.

I tried to keep it to a minimum, but there were things that I just couldn’t stand to buy in other stores (not that I really went into other stores, either). Like toilet paper. Then I moved here, to Mass. I went for popcorn (which I didn’t find) but I was very happy to discover that the Nashua Costco carries tofu – the same tofu Bodhi eats every day. At a great price.

That’s 6 days worth in 1 box!

Now I go to Costco every month for tofu. I don’t buy a lot of other things – I don’t need a lot of other things and my finances are pretty tight. They still don’t carry my favorite popcorn, but after the CSA closed for the season I have bought some frozen veggies there, too. I didn’t mean to go shopping at all today, but my early morning appointment turned out to be much shorter than anticipated, so I headed over. As I passed the toilet paper, I paused. How much toilet paper did I have at home? I couldn’t remember exactly, and I was sure I hadn’t bought any last month…finally I decided that I probably had enough and passed that section by.

I got out to my car with my tofu and broccoli and opened the trunk. Here’s what I found:

From last month’s visit?

I had to laugh. Apparently, I had toilet paper. I totally planned this blog in my head as I was driving home. Of course, I got home and I had to do other stuff, clean, move furniture, cook, search for cat pee, you know, the normal Friday tasks. I went to get a hammer this evening and there, behind the toolbox:

I am still giggling about this...
