I love it when I think ahead
Moving out, post divorce, meant going thru the marital home, and taking what I thought I could use for my new residence. Recently, the stove oven bulb burnt out (unfortunately, it also broke off when DD tried taking the burnt one out for me-I'll have to deal with that). I knew that I took an appliance bulb when I did, as they are a handy thing to keep on hand, and can be pricey. After a quick look, I couldn't find it, which later led me to pull out all of the boxes that the home energy audit gave back to me, with my old, regular lightbulbs inside. I pulled each one out, wrote down what it actually was in wattage (these are all swirly lightbulb boxes) and unearthed my spare appliance bulb which, as luck would have it, is the exact one I need at the moment (once I figure out how to get the stuck metal base out of the socket)
This is a small thing, but every purchase, or lack of purchase counts right now!
