I have a superficial dilemma. Remember that Seinfeld episode where Elaine finds out they are taking the Today sponge off the market? So she buys as many cases as she can to stockpile. Then there is all this pressure of whether or not to waste a sponge from her limited supply on a guy who isn't worthy? Okay so mine isn't about birth control. Clearly.

Mine is about a once a week conditioner that I am totally addicted to. I had heard it was going to be discontinued which is sad because it is awesome. A few month ago I bought the two boxes I found left on the shelves at one place. This week while buying my everyday conditioner I looked for more to stock up on. Nothing. In walks the internet. I have found several sites still selling it. I am all poised to buy them out when Jeff asks me a question. He wonders if it is worth it to buy a ton because no matter what it will eventually be gone and I will have to find another product. So why not just find another product now?

What do you think? Should I prolong the inevitable? Hope that it eventually comes back on the market due to unexpected demand and in the meantime use my stockpile? Buy as much as I can get my hands on and love it while I can? Or do I cut my losses and give my heart and my tresses to a new wonder product now?
