a momentous day

Today marks a momentous occasion for me friends.

I ordered toilet paper off the internet. And today it came.


You can applaud if you wish. I did.

I'm envisioning many years from now sitting on my front porch surrounded by my grandchildren sharing with them the first time grandma ordered toilet paper off the internet. And they will ask how did you even get toilet paper before that and I will tell them how I walked the aisles of Wal-Mart many times battling the crowds and rude people just for a pack of Charmin's finest. And they will gasp in horror and wonder how we ever managed.

Okay so maybe not.

I'm not gaining anything from this post just thought I'd share because I was so giddy to see this website on another blog and maybe you'll find this awesome too. It was free shipping and they automatically add the current coupons in so for some of the items I usually buy generic I found it was cheaper buying name brand here. Some items I'll keep buying in the store, but hey to save a few bucks this cheapo is thrilled.

I think I could do a whole other post on how cheap I am.

We have gotten 3 shipments from them so far, and I am obsessed. We have saved at least $30.00!

I've heard a lot about Alice -- good to know that it works!

And I'm super cheap. But then I splurge on things, so it makes up for it.
