I Finally Hit Bottom.

I never thought this would happen, in a million years.

In fact, I thought I took measures to make sure this would never happen.

Back in the day, I couldn’t even count them all. My supply? Overflowing. I was definitely a hoarder.

They were so pretty when you put them all together; they made a rainbow of possibilities, to be used in whatever order I deemed necessary.

They relaxed me, or invigorated me, or reminded me of my favorite moments. They could wash away a bad day in record time.

And now? With no ceremony, they are gone. All gone.

*wringing hands*

And I don’t know what my next steps will be.

That’s right.

I just used the last of my Bath and Body Works shower gel stash.

    Ha! You can come over to our house, our bathroom closet closely resembles a Bath and Body Works. Long gone are the days of the cheap Suave body wash I used as a single man. However, I've grown used to smelling like Apple Peach Mango Tangerine Cucumber Melon in the mornings 🙂

    ha ha ha ha. You're one of THOSE aren't you? I should have known. I have three more scents left. Then I'm in trouble!

    OMG!! How could you let that happen???? It's at that moment, when I see the last of the shower gel hitting my scrubby thingy that I start to hyperventilate. I immediately make plans to get to the nearest mall, no matter where I am, lest I need another shower with the hour, to fill the empty gel spot on my shower shelf…

    Oh that's too funny. I just came to your blog after placing my Avon order! LOL!!! A biggie! LOL!!

    I am that way with their antibacterial hand soap and purel stuff. I literally cried when they got rid of the 3 oz hand sanitizer. I bet you don't have to drive a 1/2 hour to B and Body works like I do!!!!

    Oh NO! I love bath and body, but I can't afford it. Or rather, I find buying things for Ethan makes me happier than buying things for myself.

    They always do have some good deals around Christmas…maybe you can stock up again.

  • WeaselMomma September 16, 2009, 1:35 pm

    and you just missed the big sale they had. I stocked up on hand soaps!

    Proof we're in a recession!

    There was a time that I sold Avon and stocked up on bath gel soapy scrumptiousness. I know the pain of being out. LOL

    you want some more BBW stuff? I have a bag of stuff I took out of my cabinet that I don't want anymore. Splash, lotion, shower gel, etc.

    I'll send you some if you want. Most of it is scents that I liked briefly and gave up on. LOL

    It's your patriotic duty as a Consumer and an American to go out and spend money so the manufacturers can put people to work replacing all the stuff you buy. So go to B&BW and buy more. It's the right thing to do.

    Must have freed up some extra storage space, though, right? That's always a plus. It is in our house, anyway.

  • JennyMac September 16, 2009, 6:34 pm

    I love this store and Body Shop and miss no sale….

    It looks like it's time for me to organize a gel wagon.

  • Huckdoll September 16, 2009, 8:46 pm

    Lol. That's where I am with my Lush stash right now. It's a pretty empty feeling, huh?

  • Michelle September 17, 2009, 1:49 am

    Oh, Melisa! I'm so sorry. I know how you were hoarding them. Any chance you can find some more on eBay? What are you going to use as a substitute now?

  • Tara R. September 17, 2009, 1:55 am

    That's incredible! It's like making it to the end of the Internet! What will happen to you? Can Momo and Weaselmomma make a B&BW wagon run?
