Well, at least I’ll have *soft* clothes…

Gah. I just realized that, in an utterly spaced-out moment, I accidentally bought fabric softener rather than laundry detergent at the grocery store last week. (For what it’s worth, the packages for Publix’s generic brands of fabric softener and detergent, both of which are available in unscented form, looked almost identical… so it’s an easy mistake to make.)

And I have clothes that need to be washed before Monday. -_-;;

The Save-a-Lot grocery store, the only one that’s on the Sunday bus route, only sells the heavily scented stuff. Not good for someone with allergies and sensitive skin. So that’s out.

Maybe they’ve got unscented detergent at one of the convenience stores around campus; I’ll have to check… I could’ve sworn I saw it at one of the stores on Baxter Street. ‘Course, I’ll also have to pay a somewhat higher price, but it’s still cheaper than having to call a cab…

I guess if I were feeling really adventurous, I could walk all the way down to Kroger on Baxter, but I haven’t been feeling too good lately and don’t want to put myself under more stress than necessary…

It’s times like this that I really wish I had more friends who could drive. ::sigh::

Edited November 18 to add: They had one bottle of unscented detergent left at the campus bookstore. Yay. Minor crisis averted.

  1. It’s always annoying to run out of household items, especially when I think I plan ahead. But I might find myself nearly out of laundry detergent while I have three bottles of ketchup.

  2. Oh, yeah, that happens to me quite frequently as well. I’ll end up buying stuff that I already had plenty of because I thought I was running out, but the things I do need, I forget to buy…
