Sometimes I think I drive my husband crazy. I’m one of those people who always has extra… of everything. Extra goldfish (for Abbie, which of course he ends up eating some of); extra soap, extra paper towels, extra toothpaste. I hate running out of things, so if it doesn’t go bad? I always have extra around and get nervous when the supply runs a little low. My mom is the same way, so I think I get it from her.
Sometimes, I struggle to find space for all that stuff, but other times, I’m pretty thankful I know to stock up on things. Like toilet paper. Anyone else go through it like crazy?
My mom always chose Scott (and still does, to be honest) for one simple reason – it lasted the longest. I’m the oldest of 4 kids, so we went through a lot of toilet paper, and that helped my mom keep it in the house and every bathroom stocked up – Because running out of toilet paper is just embarrassing.
So I’ve learned from my mom… and I stock several rolls in each bathroom. As a busy mom, my time is limited, and stocking up helps me avoid additional trips to the store. Less trips to the store = more time with my family doing the things I love.
I also made sure to use one of my favorite coupon apps, Ibotta, which gave me an extra $5 off this huge package of toilet paper…. which will probably not last nearly as long as I want it to.
At least it was a good deal though! After taxes and my Ibotta coupon, this package of toilet paper cost me $22.61, which boils down to 62.8 cents per roll. For that, I think I can afford to keep stocking up on it. Make sure you check out the sale at Sam’s Club and grab the Ibotta rebate while it lasts!
Do you go through toilet paper like crazy, or just my family? It can’t just be us, right?
