Running out of detergent

For weeks, I kept forgetting to buy new detergent, laundry detergent that is. I don't buy it at a regular store, so it's a special trip. When I finally remembered to stop by to buy it, I had to find out that, apparently, they are back-ordered - whatever that means. What a bummer! What to do now?

Then I remembered my fabulous friend who orders things online all the time - so I thought to myself: "Why not." I took a deep breath and dove into the cyber world to order my very first badge of detergent online.

I figured Amazon was a pretty safe bet, so I went straight there, and I was greeted by a price that was close to priceless - seriously, it was half the price from the store, and almost half from the original price on Amazon. So not only did I see a bargain but it was calling my name. Now I just had to find out the costs of shipping, which I figured might 'kill' the deal, or maybe that's why it was on sale? But again, I was surprised that the $22,50 shipping costs were waived, so there were NO shipping costs for me. Woo hoo. I just had to order it!

And it just arrived, safe and sound, after about a week. Now I have six mega bottles of my favorite detergent. I can do laundry today!Which will take me all the rest of the day and tomorrow....

And in case you are wondering why I am so psyched about it, you can read, or reread, here, why I like my detergent so much that I do NOT want to replace it, and why I rather have the laundry pile up....
