I bought some new toothpaste the other day. (I know, right?!?!) And ever since my new upgraded lifestyle (see two previous posts) I decided on the better, fancier brand. Actually, it was the only kind I could purchase according to my new friend, thekrazycouponlady, to get them for krazy cheap. Yeah, I'm pretty much a couponer now. I'm trying to decide if that warrants a special prefix to my name.
So I come home with my brand new toothpaste excited that not only did I save two bucks per tube, but now I get to look forward to brushing my teeth with a new mint flavor. At this point I have to make a decision. Do I wait to use the new paste until the old paste is gone, or pull a switcheroo? Well, that really wasn't a tough one. The old paste is immediately demoted to the back cupboard and I tear open the sparkly box.
Hang on to my hat! What do we have here! Not only is this toothpaste extra minty but it also comes in a see-through tube!! I've never seen this before! What craftmanship in a plastic container!
Well, after the excitement and hubbub calmed I started thinking, is this what we've finally come to as a society? Do we really need all the extras in order to consider buying a product? Does this see-through tube really make my teeth cleaner? Maybe. I don't know. Probably.
It's just awesome. The pioneers really missed out, you know?
