Bob Jones and All the Toothbrushes.

About a year after Scott and I got married, we moved into our house.

Not having a lot of extra money around for just whatever, Scott went through a short, phase of signing up for free samples under the name Bob Jones.  Who doesn’t like free stuff??

Bob received all kinds of goodies—shampoos, shaving gel, lotions, food samples, drink samples…

And then Bob got the toothbrush box. 


Inside this big red box was a classroom set (about 25) of little booklets and packets containing a child toothbrush and sample sized toothpaste.DSC_7233

Since I didn’t have much use for anything other than the toothbrushes and toothpaste, most of it got recycled.  But, I had to open each and every one of those packets, to pull out the toothbrushes and toothpaste samples.  (kind of a pain)DSC_7234

Well here’s the funny thing…


Every single year.  For the last 5 years!!!

Now I just kind of laugh, but I know it’s going to come every spring!  And I sit there and open up all those packets and keep all the toothbrushes and toothpaste and recycle the rest. 

We now have an entire drawer in our guest bathroom filled with them!!DSC_7236

Comes in handy with my babies who have both gone through a chewing-toothbrush-loving phase.  I don’t feel guilty about getting a perfectly good toothbrush dirty or ruined since I have dozens and dozens!


  1. Looks like a perfect thing to donate to humanitarian aid!

  2. Would you mind sending me that place you get the toothbrushes from. I'm a teacher and this would be perfect halloween gifts for my class!!!!

  3. Funny!!! Are those plaque tablets too?
