    But you have soap to last a long time once the Zombie Apocalypse hits!

    Now get some MREs. πŸ™‚Report

    Buying lots of soap so you don’t have to remember it each time you go to the store makes perfect sense to me.

    No, you can’t look in my bathroom cabinet. Why do you ask?Report

    We have a BJ’s membership. We buy soap by the pallet. It never goes bad. It doesn’t take up much space. And we have tons of storage. If I get down to the last stack of soap (typically 7-8 bars), I re-load. I use a similar approach with other toiletries. Especially if they are on sale.

    Think about it this way: Has anyone ever said, “I really wish we didn’t buy soap”?Report

    Have you considered developing an obsessive-compulsive disorder to help with the soap surplus?Report

    I buy soap in three or four flavors at a time

    Are you certain you are using them correctly? I’m a little bothered by calling them “flavors”.Report

    If all of your soap were the kind in the photo & you had so much you were looking to move some & we lived in the same state, I’d be more than willing to help you out. That’s my brand; love that stuff. Sounds like none of that is the case, though.

    Also, I did this with toothpaste. I have four full-sized tubes of Crest orig backed up right now. They only seem to sell it two-packs now, and I bought it once then forgot & thought I still needed it. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but at the rate I use it that is a ton of toothpaste.Report
