Friday 5 - Around the House

This has been such a long week! Maybe it is returning to work after a week off. Maybe it is how busy it is with SRP going on. Alls I know is I'm tired! But I am never to tired to enjoy some Friday 5 :-)  Please feel free to play along in comments or in your own blog. we go -

1. Of the products you use just to keep yourself clean and presentable, what seems to be the most overpriced?  I'm going to let you in on a not very well kept secret...I am kinda poor and sorta cheap as well.  I buy "economic" versions of most of those sorts of products.  I look for bargain prices on grooming and cleaning items, so nothing I use is too terribly overpriced. 

2.Where in your house is a reliable place to get a few quarters?  I have this little white, shallow dish on the desk in the livingroom where I keep quarters and the laundry room key.  You can take the quarters if you must, but then your laundry might not get done.
 3. A rare yes-or-no question on Friday 5: Have you ever dropped your cell phone onto your face?  I have dropped my cell phone so often that I was surprised to realize that my answer to this is NO.  Huh.

4. What did you last take out of your freezer?  The vanilla ice cream.  Then, I put some in a mug and mushed it up with a little chocolate syrup and some milk. 

5. How many rolls of wrapping paper do you have in your house? Hmmm....probably only two or three, I'm thinking.  Plus, I have some used gift bags that are still nice and perfectly useable...and some tissue paper to put inside decoratively.

Okay!  I hope you have a great weekend, kids. Also,  hope you'll stop in tomorrow to see what is SOFT and maybe to wish my middle kid, Social Animal a happy birthday.  And don't forget to tell your dad you love him on Sunday...or any day.

1. Gee, I don't wear make-up and I'm econo all the way with basic care products... probably my hand lotion because I like one that smells pretty
instead of wearing perfume.
2.The man collects coins, so he tossed all coins in an elephant shaped tin next to his side of the bed for later examination.
3.No. How exactly do you drop your cell phone on your face? Ha!
4.Ice! Summer time calls for summer drinks!
5.I have zero rolls of wrapping paper. I recently had to wrap a present in aluminum foil. :D

I'm glad they didn't ask me how many gift bags I have! Because I have a giant tupperware bin filled with recycled bags and gift boxes.

The last thing I took out of my freezer was ice cream too! The perfect Summer treat.

Silly: You sound like me with the products! I like a nice scented lotion too, it is less overwhelming sometimes. And I, too, have wrapped presents in foil...and the funnies, back when I used to get a paper.

Tara: Ah, yeah! I have way more bags than rolls of paper too :-)
I ♥ ice cream. One of my favorite treats anytime!

1. I mostly buy economy versions and definitely drug store make-up. The occasional moderately-pricey face cream.
2. I keep a baggie of quarters in my car.
3. Nope. Why would I?
4. Shrimp, which I'm thawing for dinner.
5.3 or so - I am trying to use them up and switch exclusively to bags (which I can r-use) and more environmentally friendly brown kraft paper.

Secret: I was trying to figure out the phone on face thing too...I picure lying down and holding your phone up to scroll through something? It could happen :-)
And your wrapping paper plan sounds good. I think I'd much prefer using brown kraft paper.
