Wait, What If I Need to Go?

Have you ever been in one of those situations where you couldn’t use a bathroom, so naturally, that’s all you could think about? That’s exactly what life is like when you make the decision to quit shopping. I constantly have this weird urge in my gut, like, wait – what if I need to go!?

The first ‘oh crap!’ moment happened yesterday when I started to clean out the cats’ litter box. I only have one box of trash bags (120 ct.) to get me through all six months and I can’t bear to waste a whole one on the gross litter that will only fill up about one-eighth of the bag. For years, that’s how I wasted trash bag after trash bag, but not anymore. As the box set on the floor with all the litter tilted to one side in preparation for dumping, I dashed around the house looking everywhere for something wide enough to engulf the whole side of the box for easy pouring.

Gift bags, little grocery bags, cardboard boxes – I couldn’t find anything! Finally I came across a large Bed, Bath & Beyond bag left over from Christmas shopping and it was perfect! For a split second I thought, well, maybe I should keep shopping just a little bit, if only for the store bags. Nah…

I can’t wait to see what I use on the next litter box dumping day!

…I just realized this entire post is about going to the bathroom. This will probably happen again when I do a post on my Vitamix – it has changed my entire life!
