As a general rule, I enjoy the tv show ‘Extreme Couponing’. In case you’ve never seen it, this show shows people who collect stacks of coupons which they take to the grocery and purchase several hundred dollars worth of items for pennies. Personally, I think it would be really cool to have an lifetime supply of laundry detergent, facial tissues, toilet paper and other sundries. But who needs 60 bottles of BBQ sauce? That’s 5 dozen bottles or 720 ounces or 11.2 gallons of sauce. All with expiration dates. Even if I put it on every thing I ate it’d take me years to finish it all. So, the question remains, how can one use it up before it goes bad? Here are my suggestions.
Instead of presenting the hostess of your next festive gathering with flowers or wine, hand her a gaily beribboned bottle of BBQ sauce. Or help Santa out by tucking a bottle of it in each persons Christmas stocking. Or maybe build a decorative pyramid out of the BBQ bottles, top it with a bride and groom and offer it as a wedding gift to the newlyweds this June.
See, the possibilities are as endless. Still, I’d rather have the roll toilet paper.
