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.
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)
Well here’s the funny thing…
The BOX KEPT COMING.
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!!
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!
