Ed and I differ in our adherence to Bounce

I don't know why, but I think Bounce (fabric softening dryer sheet) is, at best, a misguided use of time and money and, at worst, a rip-off invited by ad men.
Ed, on the other hand, likes them.
But, here is where the bizarre comes in.  Ed purchases laundry supplies via Fresh Direct, but I do the actual laundry.  And so we have a fairly big backlog of unused dryer sheets, and a growing backlog unopened boxes.  Since I put the stuff away and I don't really care about Bounce, the boxes tend to be haphazardly thrown into the pantry.  And when Ed wants one, he finds a box - usually unopened.  So he opens it and...
Well, we have a growing backlog of opened Bounce Boxes with 1 or 2 dryer sheets used.
