I read a news article that said TIDE laundry detergent is being used as currency by drug dealers. Hard to believe, but TIDE is being stolen in large quantities from many stores -- the cops said that one guy got caught stealing a lot of it and said he was using it to buy drugs.

Yeah, I read that, too. Guard your mailboxes! LOL

I'm wondering, though, how anyone can sneak multiple jugs of Tide out of the grocery store?

I've had a SAD freebie week. I thought I was going to move, so I held up on ordering a bunch of freebies because I didn't know if the post office would forward it.
Guess I can endure a small dry spell....but I'm making up for it with ordering EVERYTHING now.
