    Do you consider your use of TP away from home?

    At work?

    At public restrooms at restaurants, gas stations, etc?

    how about using TP for uses other than wiping your butt? Maybe using it to blow your nose? Wipe up small spills ?

    Yes to all, and I probably use half a roll if that each week.

    I think it's those stupid bears on TV that leave too much TP stuck on their butt. The amount of TP that bears are using more than likely drives up the averages for people.

    I'm calling for a boycott of the TP company that supplies the TP to bears.

    Despite strong indications to the contrary, we know he ain't full of it.

    This statistic is skewed with a 50% female population. Men use 1 roll a month. Women use like 6 a week, or however many it takes to average to 3 a week for everyone. I'm not invested enough to do the math on it.

    Wet wipe, 3 squares of charmin at a time until clean. Might be more like 1 roll every 2-3 weeks but it's nowhere near 3 rolls a week. If I bought cheap awful toilet paper that amount would definitely increase, but I don't skimp on TP

    I switched to Aldi's TP to save money. It's thin with heavy rolls, so it goes a ways longer. But surprisingly soft and strong.

    It's good enough for this former Charmin softy.

    The phrase "get in touch with your inner self" comes to mind, when you buy cheap flimsy toilet paper.

    Maybe we can look forward to switching to sea shells and not worry about using too much or too little TP in the future. For the trees! :lol:
