It just dawned on me at the worst possible moment

that having two females staying at your house means it is perfectly possible to run through an entire roll of toilet paper in less than 12 hours.

Your Say

Go to the local Walmart/Kmart/whatever and stock up on Scott toilet paper in the 1000-sheet rolls. My last buy was two (2) 27-roll packages (@ $16 each,) the first of which has already lasted more than 6 months.

Rob is right. Walmart. Though I think I get the Walmart branded version, it is in large quantities. Last load was 2 16 roll packs. And don't get me started on the double rolls and mega rolls. smh

Same with paper towels, though I get the *Sparkle* brand. The paper products take up the entire cart.

And the hairbrushes. They breed at night.

"... possible to run through an entire roll of toilet paper in less than 12 hours."

You must be new at this game. It's a virtual certainty that a roll will last 3 hours at most.

Open counter space will (if it hasn't already) diminish to roughly the area of a standard postage stamp. As will medicine cabinet shelf space.

They don't move in so much as encroach.

There is an 8' vanity in our master bath and you cannot get 1 more container of lotion or powder in it and none of it is mine.

Me? 1 small drawer is plenty adequate for my needs.

The other 2 bathrooms in the house are the same way.

For me the bathroom was always a temporary necessity but for my wife it is her den, a place to hang out.

Try being the man at home with 5 women - 4 girls....teenaged girls and their mom. You have no idea.

Less than 12 hours? Surely, they can do better than that.

Costco's Kirkland brand is my favorite TP. Full width, soft and strong.

Amazon. Buy a bidet attachment for $49.99 and your TP usage will drop enough to save the cost of the bidet plus everyone will be happier.Wiping is for savages.

I saw it, once. She gave the end a firm yank, setting the roll spinning off square after square. As it rolled she looped the arm and hand back and snatched the mass, tearing off the pile and stopping the rotation. It was actually fairly graceful. One can acknowledge that while still noting that the roll is now 1/3" smaller.
