My thoughts on toilet paper

Now I realize that this post is not deep or spiritual in nature like my last one - but I have to share my recent experience.

When I went to the grocery store about two weeks ago, I saw that the "family" size of Scott Extra Soft was cheaper per square foot than Mega pack of Scott Extra Soft. The family size rolls are much smaller, and there aren't as many square feet in a package as the other, but the deal was better. So that is what I bought.

When I got home, Big P laughed at the size of these little rolls. We only have 4 people in the house that are actually using the toilet paper. B.3.5.B is using the potty and a little toilet paper, but we still use wipes on him some of the time. I didn't think it was going to be that much of a difference.

I had no idea what this little "savings" would actually cost me until we were going through 2 rolls a day in one bathroom alone! I feel like I'm constantly changing that roll of toilet paper!!! It's enough to drive anyone mad!

So, back to the Mega pack we will go - even if it costs an extra .3 cents (yes, that's point 3 cents!) per sq. ft. It's a sacrifice we'll just have to make for the sanity of this mama!

Now that I think on it, I can't believe I thought the extra work was going to be worth it in the name of frugality! LOLOL If we can't laugh at ourselves, who can we laugh at?!

Joyfully busy at home,

we are scary! I never told you about this but I did the same thing about a month ago. Isn't it amazing how fast the toilet paper flies off the rolls when they are small, yet when they are big it seems as if the roll last forever. Needless to say, we are now back to the Mega rolls. The only difference is we were using using Angel Soft and not Scott. hugs, b
