Light bulbs. We have started to stockpile light bulbs.
I'm sure by now you've heard that the incandescent bulb, a staple of the lighting industry since the 1800s, is banned, to be phased out starting after the end of the year. Compact fluorescents will now be your only standard light bulb choice. We are not happy.
I like think I've got some eco-friendliness going on, but that is by my choice. I'm not thrilled to be forced into a bulb I don't really like based on the guise of energy-efficiency. (Oh, and I don't have great things to say about the low-flow toilet we had to purchase when we redid the other bathroom, either.) I don't understand why, in this country that was founded on capitalism, competition, and the ability to make money, our choices have become so limited (that's partially aimed at you, cable companies, of whom I can only choose one when I move to a new town). So, we have decided to hoard the bulbs, buying a few packages at a time until we can no longer do so, so we can continue to bask in their warm, energy-inefficient glow.
