But why did I buy 96 rolls of toilet paper?
Well, first, 96 rolls of toilet paper make wonderful building materials! However, next time I purchase this much toilet paper I will remember to lay down the ground rules with Cubby that forts and castles can not be made before the sun comes up on a Saturday morning. Oh but it was fun, even if my tummy did growl for breakfast the whole time!
1. Buying in bulk is much cheaper.
2. I hate shopping. I mean I really hate shopping, especially for things like toilet paper. The fact that these rolls can be ordered online and shipped to my doorstep is a huge bonus and simplifies my life.
3. I love lists, but I hate shopping lists. Now, I never have to put toilet paper on my list. I don’t even have to think about toilet paper for at least 2 years. What will I do with with all this extra think time?
Look out world.
4. Because I only order every 2-3 years, I have a relatively lower carbon footprint, at least when it comes to toilet paper. If I ordered toilet paper every 2 months, more fuel would be used for shipping. So, I bought the biggest box. Hey, these little things add up.
5. This brand makes their product from 100% recycled paper and can be safely composted in my compostable toilet!
6. They make great gifts. You think I am joking. I’ll let you think I am joking. I have saved the day, more than once.
7. This company does not bleach their paper. My butt thanks you.
8. They use absolutely no plastic packaging! Each roll is wrapped in white compostable paper. Plastic-wrapped butt paper, just looks…well…trashy.
9. AND…They come in a GREAT BIG BOX! Need I say more?
One of the last, super happy moments I had with my dear friend, Tiffany, was laughing and joking about where I was going to put 96 rolls of toilet paper in a tiny house! Over wine and cards we decided the best solution was to always buy the paper in the fall, use it to insulate the house and then slowly by spring, our house would be able to breath again. Oh, I miss her so.
Believe it or not, I did find room in the tiny house to store 80 of the 96 rolls of toilet paper out of sight.
The rest were donated to my parents.
