Update on Toilet Paper

Went grocery shopping on Sunday. This is what I found. It FULLY explained all the issues that I was having with frequent toilet paper change-over. The Mega rolls are over 500 squares per roll. The "family size" are 175 squares per roll.

Now, why would they call this "family size"? It surely isn't because it's easier on mom, who seems to frequently be the one stuck on the potty with little to no paper on the roll and ultimately is the one who changes the roll.

Is it because it's supposed to encourage "family" involvement of roll changing?

Oh, oh, I got it!!! It's because the rolls are a nice small size to fit into the diaper bag (or your BACK POCKET) for frequent family runny noses. Yes, that must be it!!!

I'm so glad I figured that out. The confusion and frustration just may have been enough to cause serious friction between myself and the toilet paper holder.

We often get teased about living the Little House days. We do thoroughly enjoy Little House, but as of yet, I have no desire to use the Sears Roebuck catalog as an alternative to my Mega rolls!!

Back to the regularly scheduled program....

Joyfully busy at home,
Christine

Christine--
Life is too short to spend time replacing tp rolls...or spending unnecessary $ for heinie wiping.
Stick with the cheaper stuff and keep it in a basket by the throne.
