Speaking of Home Products...

I realize that I have some quirky habits. I also know that I am not alone in these odd little preferences, though. Take, for example, my hatred for bottles of soap, detergent, shampoo, etc, that most people have throughout their home. These annoy me. I don't like seeing someone's advertising dollars splashed about my house with their logos and their "NEW" "IMPROVED" exclamations. What can I say, it's the little things that make a home feel like home. On my kitchen sink, instead of a big plastic bottle of dishwashing liquid, I have an ornate glass bottle that I refill with the stuff. It has a decorative cork in it, and it just feels nicer than a big old plastic bottle of soap. I'm totally not crazy, because LOOK! There are other people who do this, too, and they make LABELS for those bottles.

Helpful, since the metal bottle next to my bathroom sink is actually lotion and not soap, which has confused plenty of people. Ever try to wash your hands with lotion? Doesn't work very well. Now, I'm not part of some big movement to encourage everyone to stop buying stuff and make everything yourselves, because let's face it. Those companies make plenty of good, yummy smelling and effective products. I just don't want their tacky bottles everywhere.

These are just some of the things my man is going to have to adjust to. Anyone have similar habits your significant other has to work around?

    My girlfriend has this really ridiculous coffee table. Sure, it looks cool. But you can't set any coffee down on it because it's the world's most poorly designed table for putting coffee on. I mean, where am I supposed to put my Diet Mountain Dew can while watching Sportscenter?
