Toilet Paper

 

On August 6, 2011, I became a wife and the toilet paper fairy.
My poor hubs can't put a roll of toilet paper on the holder, to save his life.
Why?
I'm not sure.
Since putting the toilet paper on the holder is my official job, I have noticed that the holder is empty
A LOT.
I buy the HUGE rolls, too. You know, the ones that are equal to four regular rolls?
Um.
I usually don't go around asking people how many rolls of toilet paper their house uses per week, I feel like that might be inappropriate,  but I think my house my husband uses more than normal.
Here's the math:  if the rolls I buy are equal to four regular rolls, and we go through one roll every two days...that would be (roughly) three rolls per week.  
Three (mega rolls) x four (regular rolls) = twelve (regular rolls).
Twelve rolls per week.
I'm pretty sure that's not normal...
I told Tyler that I felt like I was constantly going to the store to get toilet paper.
He told me that I must be imagining things.
Yesterday, the truth was unveiled.

My dad's grocery store has a new coupon machine right by the entrance. 
 When you go in, you scan your "savings card," the machine looks at your shopping history, and then prints off ten coupons that are related to the items you purchase most frequently.
So I scanned our card, and out came our coupons.
Five of the ten coupons were for toilet paper!
hahahaha.
I have my proof and he has accepted his toilet paper problem:)
I may send him to rehab.

Living with a guy is too much fun!

We go through the same freaking thing in our house. I don't know whether to be annoyed or disgusted. How much toilet paper does a person need?!? So glad I am not the only toilet paper fairy.

This is when a Sam's club/Bj's membership reaaaaaally pays off. We've had to go out and buy toilet paper like 3 times since we've gotten married. (February 2011) It's awesome. And saves us lots of time to pick on each other about other stuff.

That's a lot of toilet paper! I have my mom pick us up the gigantic packs of tp at Costco when she goes, but we usually go through one mega-roll a week at home. But we're really only ever home on the weekends, which may cut down on our tp usage.

Hahaha friend, I feel the exact. same. way. In college my roommate and I would seriously pride ourselves on going to the bathroom in every other building on campus to avoid having to buy toilet paper too often. I am both impressed and ashamed by this hahah.

Rachel said...

Haha...our little home is the same way!Husband can't put a roll of toilet paper on the holder to save his life!

This is so funny! The same thing happens to us too - except I'm the culprit : ) My hubby is amazed at how much toilet paper we use...and when I say we, I mean me.

Umm, I have had this same occurance with Christopher. I am 100% positive he uses 10x as much toilet paper as I do. I guess it's a guy thing.

Autumn Ingram said...

Autumn Ingram said...

Autumn Ingram said...

Autumn Ingram said...
