With a husband that is almost six and a half feet tall, a fifteen year old that is almost 190 pounds of solid muscle, a 13 year old just hitting his growth spurt, an extremely tall 12 year old as well as 3 other children and myself you could probably guess that we consume our fair share of food and toiletries. We are the consummate "Buy in Bulk" family and out of necessity, we are also a "Cheaper is Better" family.
For the last fifteen years I have been buying jumbo sized packages of toilet paper. I am sure, if you come from a large family, you know the TP I speak of. You buy 24 rolls at a time. 2 ply industrial strength, individually wrapped and cheap. If you have never used this type of toilet paper then you don't know that it serves a double purpose. Not only can you buy large amounts for less money, the very nature of the product does not induce you to use more than the bare minimum. I mean, it works ... but the best descriptor might be "efficient".
Our town has a brand new Super Walmart. Well everyone else in our community has flocked to the new store, I relish in shopping in the near empty isles of our local supermarkets that have filled their stores with rock bottom sales to maintain their customer base. Alas, there on a discount rack was a package of Charmin' Toilet Paper for cheap. CHEAP I tell you. So I bought it.
There is a whole other world that I knew nothing about and I have crossed over to the other side. Toileting will never be the same. Would it be bad to forbid the boys from using it?
