A list of things I seem to have plenty of, until I suddenly don’t:

  1. wrapping paper
  2. icing sugar
  3. laundry soap
  4. children’s advil
  5. cash in my wallet
  6. toothpaste
  7. printer paper
  8. cell phone battery power
  9. applesauce
  10. patience

  1. Ketchup. We always have three spare bottles and then … we’re out!

    Then I go out and buy three bottles again so we’ll NEVER, EVER run out. Then I don’t buy ketchup for months and … we’re out!

    1. WORD to this. I follow the exact same pattern – buy three giant bottles so we’ll always have some, then six months later we’re suddenly out. I swear every time I organize the pantry shelves I think to myself, “DO NOT BUY KETCHUP, we have six bottles,” and yet, we are always out. GAH!

  2. I love this. This is exactly how it goes at my house. We don’t have ROOM for all the toilet paper we have—until suddenly we are down to the last roll. I JUST BOUGHT ketchup / toothpaste / paper / pencils / half-and-half / salsa, and somehow I am running to the store.
