Last year while shopping for laundry detergent, I was struck by a sudden need to save some pennies and opted for the generic detergent and fabric softener.  Within a week I developed an ugly and itchy rash on my belly.  Amount of money saved on detergent?  Less than $2.00.  Amount paid for special cream for my nasty rash?  $15.00.

 Last week, in another out-of-nowhere need to save some coin, I purchased a home-waxing kit, for those in-between times.  Result?  Nasty burn on my thumb and a massive mess on my bathroom counter where I spilled the hot GREEN wax.

 Think the universe is trying to tell me something?
