Why can’t I just buy 6 dryer sheets?

When I go to my beach condo timeshare, I know what I’m getting into, and pack accordingly. My box of detergent, my mega-packs of dishwasher powder, my box of dryer sheets, and some basic staples I’ve got around the house. And since I can pack as much or as little as I want in the car, I can overpack and if I don’t use something or have leftovers? Throw ’em in the car and bring them home.

However, I can’t really do that when traveling across the continent by air.

The corporate apartment I have in Bellevue is equipped about as well as the beach timeshare. Utensils, 8-ish place settings, washer, dryer, etc. So I’ve got a lot of the basics, but I’m missing the staples, as it were. I mean, I’m here for three weeks, and need to do more than one load of dishes and one load of laundry. But unless something goes horribly wrong, I’ll probably only do maybe 6 or 7 loads of laundry. Or as many loads of dishes.

The question is, where do I buy the “I only need 6 of this packages” of the sorts of supplies? I mean, do they even make ’em that small anymore?

The end result is, I think I’m gonna have some leftovers. I suppose I can ship the extra non-perishables home, or I can leave them for whoever gets the place next.

I mean, I don’t really NEED the other 74 laundry sheets, do I?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
