The Perfect Solution

When you live in a family of girls, it goes without saying that you are going to use a lot of toilet paper.  It’s used for so much more than its intended purpose.  We use it to pick up icky things, rescue spiders, dab on and off make up…well, just all sorts of silly things.

I finally gave up on the four packs of squeezable Charmin and went with the industrial commercial Costco size.  The only problem with this is storage.  What does anyone really do with twenty four rolls of paper? 

Fortunately, we have plenty of room beneath our bathroom sinks.  The only dilemma is getting it all tidily placed there.  I figure that’s what kids are four.  (After all, if we didn’t have them, we would still be using Charmin!)  After taking a couple of rolls for the seldom used downstairs bathroom, I asked each girl to put half of the remaining rolls in a bathroom. 

One of my children immediately set to work taking rolls out of the bag, while the other worked on something else.  A short time later, I came back to check on my girl.  She had neatly stacked her rolls under her assigned sink.  She had also stacked the other half of the rolls in a neat pyramid…right outside the cupboard her sister was supposed to put them in!


Apparently, they had kept falling out of the bag.  She knew that she would be busted if she just left all the rolls in the middle of the floor, yet she didn’t want to do her sister’s work.  That’s how she came up with her perfect solution.  Sigh…

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on “Bird’s Eye View.” Do you mean you really are not willing to climb up on top of a basket apparatus to take such a photo of your dear daughter?? LOL. Mine was taken from a walking track that is a floor above the basketball courts.

    I can relate to the toilet paper delema; (how come there is no spell check here) since you use more than your share! Ha Ha When I first noticed tha pyramid before I read the article and I laughed as I thought that you had stacked the paper in the bathroom like that; handy for all concerned.

    Well that is a pretty cool toilet paper pyramid.

    Personally, I would get the good toilet paper for MY bathroom and put the cheap Costco TP in the other bathrooms. haha

    Why put it under the sink, its a lot harder to get at it that way. The pyramid idea is a great way to save your energy.. Very creative that niece of mine.

    Pretty smart cookie, I say! Know what you mean about the many uses of toilet paper…I have a roll on my desk at work for runny noses, etc. It sure is a lot cheaper than Kleenex, and besides – it gets an awful lot of laughs!

    This really tickled my funny bone. Your daughter has a great work ethic and very clever to boot. Maybe you should buy some stock in Kirkland for her.
