I bought a 6 pack of Cottonelle, about 2 months ago and still have 3.5 left...
That's because you use it the way it's supposed to be used and you don't use a half of a roll on each visit to the bathroom like many of these dunces do
People!!?? Really now!!??? ask yourselves what the pioneer men & women in the 1700s/1800s did with their toilet duties?? Ask yourselves what the present day Amish do now a days? Most people have no idea how hard life is for most Amish people even in the year 2020.
Most people that are so pampered and spoiled by modern amenities have no conception of how people have had to live in the past. Well maybe it's time these folks got a lesson in hard knocks. When I lived in a deer hunting cabin for over a month with no electricity and no running water in 2009 I just went out in the woods and used a handful of leaves on quite a few occasions. I'll probably do it again this next hunting season too.
I'll include myself in this rant. Because we all need to go through some times with limited resources to appreciate what we are blessed with in modern life. We modern day Americans have had it so easy for so long that I'm wondering if we have the spinal column to get through some really hard times if we have to
It's going to be interesting to see how all of this unfolds in the next two to three months.
Well yes, it only takes two or three sheets to get the job done. But the real reason is the bidet I bought before all of this hullabaloo went down. It has eliminated TP for everything butt(heh) a little drying.
Pamper your bum!
As for how it will turn out. Life will go on.
P.S. to the people buying the TP right now. Toilet paper isn't going to help with a respiratory virus. Wrong end, lol.
OH I agree with most of what you've said. Not only is toilet paper a useless thing to stock up on>> it doesn't provide any long term survival help to speak of at all. Instead of hoarding TP people should be hoarding any kind of disinfectant i.e. bleach, lysol, pine-sol ect. Or people should be procuring food items with a long shelf life or large amounts of potable drinking water or a way to produce safe drinking water.
The fact that TP only gives you a tiny amount of comfort compared to so many items a person could buy that would be lifesavers in the event a person would have to be held up in their home for a long, protracted period of time.
Food, sanitation items, potable water, guns & ammo, just to name a very few that would truly make some common sense. Not to mention stocking up on medication if you are a person who is on maintenance meds ( like diabetes medicine for instance) or just get a doctor to write you a couple of scripts of anti-biotics in the event you might get injured with no medical help available.
