Perhaps the MOST important survival tool you will need to make it through the current Global Pandemic!

TAKE THE TEST...
howmuchtoiletpaper.com...

Find out if you have hoarded enough TP to survive!
I'm GOOD for 184 days...92 days if I decide to share it with my wife.

Personally, after having used this remarkable tool...I know that the next time I sit down on the crapper...I will never be more relieved.

Use a garden hose. People lived for thousands of years without TP. Non issue and stupid.

It says I am good for 43 days.
But I don't think it figures in the two kids that I still have at home. They use a lot of TP/toilet visit, and the boy really hasn't hit puberty yet.....

People are nuts. If this scenario has shown me one thing. We don't actually use that much toilet paper. As of two weeks ago in a three person household we had three full rolls of toilet paper. We now have three and a half rolls of toilet paper because someone donated one to us. In two weeks we used up a half a roll of toilet paper. Are people just not aware of how long this stuff lasts? Buying a package of toilet paper is typically a quarterly thing sometimes longer, and that's a single pack. I mean, my girlfriend had the #s and was sick last night with and we still have all this.

We're almost out of toilet paper in that we have three and a half rolls. That three and a half rolls is at least a months worth if not more... People are insane...

I have about 8 old towels that can be cut into washcloth size.
I have a washing machine.
In case of emergency, my shower is about 3 steps from the toilet.

Problem solved.

No need for a calculator. I'm down to 1 box of Kleenex for t.p.

Going to the store later and they better have my t.p. ( or at least some kleenex )

I don't know how many sheets on the rolls we have, but they are fat rolls, so I guessed.

Good for 194 days.

I did not add the weekends with the 6 year old grandsons. That would probably drop me down to 180. They use a lot.

And no hoarding here. Just what I normally keep in the house. LOL

Same with menstrual pads and diapers. I am the oldest of ten and have changed more than my share of diapers. There was no such thing as disposal diapers when we were babies, just to show how old I am.

I live in the country and am blessed with awesome neighbors, and we have large number of "can do" old folks out here that can work magic with what they have to "get her done".

Also have quite a few Red Necks, and say what you will, but no culture is more creative.

Before someone has a melt down I am using Red Neck as a culture because we have Black and Hispanic Red Necks. I use the term Red Neck to describe a mindset, not the actual color of their skin. I don't use it as a derogatory term, for me it is with admiration when I speak of those that can think outside of the box, those that have a pure form of ingenuity for being able to make something usable out of items so many are throwing away.

So I think will do just fine. Like my Mother always say, "Necessity is the Mother of invention". Yeah, she is an Irish/Native Red Neck.

Wayyyyy ahead of you.... Unfortunately.

There's nothing more demeaning in this world than having to fold the TP over.

Make sure you exclude the ones with thorns.

Following the disposable diaper line of thinking, one could cut old towels and ratty t-shirts up and use them in place of TP.
Place a bucket with a lid next to the toilet, partly filled with a sanitizing solution of water and Chlorox (you might want to add some laundry detergent to help break down the poo stains). Drop the used towel pieces in the bucket.
When you start running low on towel pieces, take a plunger and agitate the bucket, then drain and rinse with fresh water, then put it through your washing machine on hot water cycle with laundry detergent and another dose of Chlorox to be safe.

I feel demeaned now.
I always fold the tp.
I feel like some kind of miser now.
