I need an intervention

I just got out of the shower and was looking for some sort of clip to hold my hair back. That is when I noticed that I have a serious problem.

I'm addicted to buying toothpaste.

I have 10 (count em 10) small tubes of toothpaste. All still in the boxes. I also have 3 large tubes of toothpaste. 2 of them are open and one I've been using. The other is still in it's box.

Why do I buy so much dang toothpaste????

Do I secretly fear that I have stinky breath?

I know my teeth aren't as white as they should be and most of the tubes that I have are whitening paste. But still..... We are talking 13 tubes of toothpaste.

This doesn't even count the 2 tubes of toothpaste for NIck. I keep one on hand so he doesn't run out. He tends to use too much toothpaste. His are always fruit and bubblegum flavors.

Mine are all different sorts of flavors. Citrus, Mint, Cinnamon, Vanilla. And a few others I can't think of at the moment. I will admit that 8 of the small tubes are in sampler type boxes with 4 to the box. 4 different flavors. I bought 2 boxes because they were on sale. I don't really like the regular mint flavor toothpaste. It makes me want to gag. Maybe it was a bad reaction to some creme de minth when I was younger.

Anyways, how young can a kid be when you switch em to adult toothpaste?? If he was using my toothpaste, I wouldn't feel so bad for having so much. And maybe it would get used up faster. lol

I've put all the toothpaste into my cabinet where I keep the one I'm using. Maybe this will remind me that I don't need any more dang toothpaste. hehe

Kids can be on adult toothpaste once they are old enough to spit it out instead of swallowing. Just make sure he's not using more than a pea size dab on his brush so he doesn't end up with discoloration on his teeth.

That being said you know he's not going to like any of the flavors of your toothpaste so you'll end up with more. lol.

It's called 'theme buying'. Be glad yours is with toothpaste...I've actually done it with pickles, salad dressing, mayonnaise and minipads. Go figure.

Sounds like my mom and her brown gravy mix. She was cleaning out the kitchen cabinets one day and found dozens of packets of brown gravy mix. We don't have a clue why she would keep buying them since the only thing she ever used them for was to thicken beef stew and she really didn't make it very often. At least you brush your teeth! LOL

Ha, don't even get me started on toothpaste. I easily have 20 tubes! The thing is, I can't pass up a good deal. I use coupons and combine it with the sale and get FREE toothpaste! I also have a huge stockpile of T.P., papertowels, dish soap, tooth brushes and laundry detergent. We should start a 12 step called "stockpilers anonymous"!
