I have lots of sisters. Two of them go to college in my town. I love having them here. They love having me here. They, I have no doubt, also love the fact that they can pick up free. . .whatever they need from my hall closet. Though sometimes they betray their amusement at the whole scheme. Apparently it's a sister thing.

I recently found out about my friend's blog, Saving in Greenville. Since she doesn't give her name on the blog, I'll make one up for her. How about . . . Cordelia. Cordelia is a perfectly elegant name. Anyway, my sister Laura is friends with Cordelia's sister Mary Beth, and Laura was telling us about her conversation with Mary Beth the other day:

L: My sister has gotten into shopping at--
MB: Drug stores, right? Mine too!
L: She has like this stash of shampoo and--
MB: Yeah, and tons of toiletries. Cordelia had this huge supply, and then last year, she decided to have a yard sale, and you know what she did? She SOLD it all! I was like, "Why did you do that! That was my stash of toiletries!"
L: Yeah, my sister started this blog.

Maybe they could start a support group. "Sisters of Drugstore Junkies United" or something. Oh well. She really appreciates it deep down, I'm sure. ;-)

I found your blog from your guest post on Money Saving Mom. I think I'm the speaker from your babies r us workshop! At least, from scanning your blog, I think we're in the same town.

Crazy coincidence in the blogisphere!

Well, hi!

That is hysterical! Yeah, I was there in July 2007. (The Babies R' Us next to CiCi's and Italian Market and Grill?)

Thanks for your encouragement for me to take the plunge! I love my "clothies". I couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you for introducing yourself!

Yep, that was me! I was reading the post and thought "wow that sounds like something I'd say..."

There is a cloth diapering moms group that meets in Greenville now. They meet at the Greenville main branch library at 10am the 2nd Wed of the month. In the mtg rooms past the coffee shop. For any of your local readers who might want to learn more or swap tips.

I'm so glad cd'ing has been a helpful choice. Sadly, BRU won't let me do workshops anymore. Maybe their diapers sales went down?
