Back by popular demand – Where did all the colored toilet paper go?

Sep 19, 2013

RIP Pink Toilet Paper, Cherished Friend, Companion, and Always There When You Needed It Most; 1950-?

RIP Pink Toilet Paper, Cherished Friend, Companion, and Always There When You Needed It Most; 1950-?

We’re bringing this one back from the archives… Originally posted Jul 16, 2009 – “Where did all the colored toilet paper go?”

Think about it for a second – When was the last time you reached for some TP and saw anything but the standard white roll?  Probably around the same time tie dyed t-shirts and Birkenstocks were still in style, right?

30 years ago colored toilet paper wasn’t the rarity it is today.  Introduced in the 50’s and popular throughout the 70’s, many manufacturers produced a variety of colors including pink, blue, yellow, lilac, tan, and black.  Homeowners loved matching the color of their toilet paper to the color of their bathrooms (it was the 70’s after all!).  So besides the obvious reason that what was hip in the 70’s isn’t anymore, where did all the colored TP go?

According to the King of Toilet Paper, two major events occurred which  hurt sales and thus led to the downfall of the colored toilet paper reign:
–    Doctors started warning colored toilet paper could lead to skin irritation.  As pretty as we once thought it looked, no one wants to deal with that!
–    Ecologists also began warning the dye in the colored toilet paper rolls was harmful to the environment.

With an increased cost of production (it costs more to produce colored than white toilet paper) and a decrease in sales, manufacturers began to produce less and less.  Up until 5 years ago (now 9), Scott was one of the last remaining manufactures to still produce our old friend in beige, blue, and pink.  However, they have since cut production all together.

RIP Colored Toilet Paper – From the bottoms of our bottoms, we thank you for the service you have provided us over the years.  We’ll miss you.

Venezuelan Toilet Paper Crisis

May 21, 2013

Venezuela importing millions of toilet paper rolls due to shortage from APTN MUST SEE on Vimeo.

Venezuela’s toilet paper crisis is not as simple as it appears. It’s not just a supply and demand issue. Toilet paper among other staples such as butter, sugar, flour, and coffee are price fixed in this socialist country, so people from all walks of life can afford toilet paper. But the current political environment has led to campaigns claiming a shortage, causing people to start hoarding toilet paper in fears of running out.

To handle the shortage of toilet paper, the country is importing 50 million rolls of bathroom tissue. But, with the monthly usage at 125 million rolls, there may still not be enough to divert a crisis.

I’m glad I live in a country that I can buy toilet paper in bulk online and have it shipped to me! Don’t get left with an empty roll!

Bulk Toilet Paper Buyers Beware of Arrest

Sep 25, 2012

A woman from Texas, 41 year old Tara Mauney, was recently arrested and faces jail time for allegedly helping middle school students buy toilet paper for a prank, (come on you know she did it).  The damage the middle school students caused amounted to almost $6000, including removing graffiti from the house written with permanent marker.

FoxNews reported that the woman was caught on surveillance tapes with a group of eight kids buying three 36-packs of toilet paper at Wal-mart. While we always encourage buying bulk toilet paper, we do not condone destructive toilet paper pranks at!

What type of woman brings eight kids to Wal-mart? Kind of hard to deny that the toilet paper was for a prank, but Mauney insists that she is innocent of any crime.

Mauney’s lawyer states,

I don’t think we’ve got a big enough prison in Texas if we’re gonna incarcerate everyone that bought toilet paper.

What would you do with the money you save from a year supply of Charmin toilet paper? How much would your year supply of toilet paper be? According to the blog, Food Storage Made Easy, you can easily calculate the amount of toilet paper you use in a year as well as how much storage space you will need.

The question of how much do you need is easily answered. When you go to the store to buy because you are out, buy 3 times what you would normally and store 2 of them. When you need it again, repeat. After 6 months you’ve stored a year’s supply (twice what you used in 6 months!) Works for anything. You can shorten or lengthen the time it takes as your budget dictates by changing the multiple you buy. Twice as much as usual will take a year, 4 times as much will take 4 months, etc.

Of course, you could always buy toilet paper in bulk from, and store it in its convenient case. As many as 96 rolls come in one case, so you should be set for at least 6 months unless you have really high traffic bathrooms!


Facial Tissue vs Toilet Paper Plus Reusable Shopping Bag Giveaway!

May 8, 2012

Thanks to the OCRegister for the image!

If you’re a savvy household shopper, you may have considered if facial tissue is worth buying. Toilet paper gets the job done, but facial tissues are convenient and softer (unless you’re buying really cushy toilet paper). According to Clark Howard, CNN’s conusmer expert, facial tissue costs 8x the cost of toilet paper. That means that when you’ve got a cold or allergies and blowing your nose, it’s more expensive to buy Kleenex facial tissues on average, than just regular toilet paper rolls.

Do you buy facial tissues, even though it’s more expensive? Answer in the comments below, first 10 to respond will receive a reusable shopping bag! E-mail with your shipping information after leaving your comment below.

Whether you’re buying toilet paper or facial tissue, buying in bulk is more economical. While you will pay more upfront for a case of toilet paper, you will save on the time of shopping, frustration of running out, and transportation to stores. Buy facial tissue in bulk at and save money today!
