Life Lesson #432

Don't cheap out on toilet paper.

Seriously. Most offices have the thinnest, roughest, cheapest toilet paper they can buy. Why treat your heinie to that when you get home?

Since I am trying to be a little more frugal (let's not talk about the new shoes I just bought, which I will be returning) I did not buy my normal, top of line, preference for toilet paper. In case you are needing to know which tp is the best, let me recommend Cottonelle Aloe & E. It's so soft and doesn't tear or leave lint behind (ha!) like Charmin (plus, don't you hate those bear commercials?).

So instead of my favorite, I bought Quilted Northern. Quilted! How could that be bad? It is. Maybe I got a bad batch because I've been buying on the cheap for a while now and I don't remember it being this bad. Seriously, it's as bad as the office toilet paper.

And thus ends today's life lesson, and sadly, one of the first thoughts I had this morning while brushing my teeth.

sweet! while getting all the links for this post I found that Cottonelle has coupons on their site. Target here I come!


  1. I'm a cottonelle girl myself. :)

  2. i'm a big advocate of not being frugal when it comes to toilet paper as well!

  3. You know, I am just not picky about my toilet paper. I think it comes from all those years in college when I was soooo poor that I actually went into restaurants and STOLE toilet paper from them. Now, I don't really care.

    Target on the other hand... Target, I love.
