Kelly Williams Brown, the girl who proved that buying in bulk is better on her blog, adultingblog.com is back on ToiletPaperWorld again! Her book Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps comes out in May, you can pre-order it here. Today she provides some quick and easy advice for storing your toilet paper once you have purchased your case of 72 rolls.
If you’re guilty of leaving an empty roll, you can get a free roll of toilet paper with our Tweet for Toilet Paper Campaign! Just tweet a picture of your empty roll with hashtag #tp911 @toiletpaperking and send your shipping address to me firstname.lastname@example.org. For details and restrictions click here.
I’m willing to bet that you spend little-to-no time thinking about toilet paper storage, ever. It’s OK. Toilet paper storage is not necessarily one of the highly engaging, crucial issues in the average person’s life.
But here is the beauty of toilet paper storage: You can think about it literally once, for 10 minutes, and then never again.
Up until recently, I utilized the ‘squishing excess rolls, still in their big bag, next to the toilet’ method. What this method boasts in, um, ease, it lacks in style and flair. Also, “Just put that pile of things wherever!” is not a great interior decor strategy.
So last week, I got a cute little toilet paper holder. I happened to get mine for $6.99 at Ross Dress For Less, but I am reasonably certain that every single store in the entire world that sells any home goods has them. Here’s what three minutes’ worth of Googling gave me: A sleek, minimalist number! A shabby-chic one! A natural, basket-y one! You could even have a tiny, homemade outhouse-like one! (pictured at right, sold by Miss58 on Etsy). Anyway, if you want to personally page through all the Google Shopping results, be my guest. The world is yours, friends. At least when it comes to toilet paper storage.
The beauty of these, of course, is that it makes it really, really easy to change the roll. Because all your rolls are right there. No more waddling awkwardly around the house, ever. That peace of mind is surely worth $6.99.
