I'm a product whore.

Seriously, I have discovered where all my cash went! In my shower right now there are currently 5 bottles of shampoo, 3 conditioners, 4 body washes, 2 facial washes plus 3 bars of soap. That's not counting a couple bottles of dog shampoo & conditioner that I'm sure A has grabbed and used a few times. :) I must admit there's even more in the hall closet. How many products do two women really need anyway?

When I picked up my bathroom a few days ago, I'm was amazed by all the eye shadows, makeup, eyeliners, mascara, lipstick, glosses and powders. There are hair waxes, pomades, putty, smoothers, shiners and sprays.  I have a zillion varieties of toothpaste, floss and brushes (thanks to Oral-B and Crest who send me samples). Lotions, perfumes, body sprays, face creams and anti-wrinkle treatments fill every cupboard, drawer and basket. I was then inspired to clean my bathroom closet...the list goes on and on.

Next time I'm asked what I spend my money on and I'm tempted to say purses, shoes, or pets, I'll just remember the massive supply of beauty products I have stocked up. Trying to look good isn't cheap I guess!

Sounds close to normal to me. We have a 1 to 20 product ratio going on in this household. I'm the 1.

Now if we were talking about electronics stuff, I would be holding the 20.

I read this wrong and thought you said "Im in the shower right now..." instead of just "in the shower..." I was sitting here trying to figure out why on earth you would be blogging while in your shower!!

Oh and yes, I have 2 whole shelves in my bathroom closet full of shampoo, lotion, hair crap, etc. that I have moved from place to place swearing I will use it someday!

PS...I hope you, A, and the pup family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My son leaves in a few days, and I've been spending time with him, and not making the rounds to visit my bloggy friends.

Same here. And I don't even use 90% of it. Ever.

Jude-Lets not talk about electronics either...I'ma gadget junkie.

Crystal-I'm just like Kramer-- live, cook and blog all in my shower. :)

VK-Enjoy every minute with your baby.

Ms. Moon-Then why the heck do we buy it? I'm making a rule that I can't buy any new stuff until I've used the old up. (Let's see how long that lasts.)

I'm the exact same damn way.

Love you and A!
