I may splurge next time

We have three girls in our home.  Not only is there a lot of tears and hair all over the place we also go through a ton of toilet paper.  Because of this I generally buy cases at Costco.  Recently we were running low so I just picked up a big family pack at the grocery store.  Trying to be thrifty (which lately translates into this will bite me in the ass) I started checking prices.  I ended up with, I believe, Charmin but the cheapest version (yes there are all sorts of comfort levels so you pay more to get better toilet paper now I know this). 
This stuff is CRAP.  Every time I wipe I think I am sharping my vagina for battle.  What the heck, this isn't right.  I am going to need reconstructive surgery by the time this family pack is gone.
Back to Costco for me.  Not the best paper but softer than the 20 girt I am using.

Slummy-Mummy-Care~Like Obama-Care only trashier

Since retiring from working life we no longer have dental care.  This just entails my family not going to the dentist.  Trying to prevent my daughters from looking like meth heads I decided that they needed to be seen by our dentist since it has been over a year.  If none of you know, a dentist appointment,with xrays, is $200.00.
I decided in order to save a bit of money that my younger daughter didn't need xrays (she has good teeth so I am hoping she doesn't soon look like she is from Pend Orielle county with my cheapness).  As I explained to the hygienist there would be no X-rays for Princess Worthless today she gave me a bit of a look, I said we no longer have dental coverage so I was cutting back, then I spat out "and if you have any used equipment and supplies use those if it will save me more money".
I am sure that will be going in my permanent file.
