Posted on 02/11/2012 3:54:48 AM PST by Daffynition
When you have a cold or are suffering from allergies, tissues are a must-have, but the cost can rack up when you're buying them all the time. Have you ever considered using toilet paper instead? Here are a few good reasons why you should.
We've all grabbed a few squares from the bathroom roll in a pinch, but using toilet paper over tissues is actually a more cost-effective choice in the long run. On average, a box of tissues has 65 sheets and breaks down to about 2 cents per sheet. However, a roll of toilet paper has nearly four times as many sheets as a box of tissues and costs half as much.

Of course, I didn't conduct a scientifically rigorous test of different grades and plies of toilet paper versus tissue paper, so this is only anecdotal evidence.
For nasal purposes, there are some pretty soft tp’s out there. Better to buy a premium brand for that purpose, but it’s still fairly cheap compared to Kleenex.
Kleenex tissues are designed for strength when wet, whereas toilet tissue is designed to disintegrate when wet.
Why not use a cotton hanky like Grandpa and save some serious cash. In about 60,000 years, you’d save enough money for that vacation to Barbados.
I use paper towels.
I’ve been saving this way all my life! I’m 64. So far, I’ve saved enough for my Barbados vacation to get me about 300 yards off Miami Beach. The water is over my head. What do I do next?
I know it's traditional for people, but hygienically, it's unacceptable.
I saw a show [TLC? maybe],on *thrifty/cheapskate people*, and a woman was separating the plys of TP to make it go farther.
Another guy rinsed his paper towels off, and hung them to dry, to *reuse* them.
Save more money by using both sides.
Use washable cloth squares instead of toilet paper. Who cares if it’s unsanitary, you’ll save 50 cents per week and be off to Barbados in no time!
Or save your empty plastic bottles ...soon you'll have a boat sturdy enuf to get you to Barbados on the Gulf Stream.
“I use paper towels.”
Me too, and they work good as toilet paper too. One square of Bounty can take care of just about anything (you just have to break it up).
Doe Sears send a catalog anymore?
The cardboard center tears out easily making TP its own dispenser
Your aptness of photos always astounds me, Daffy!
Important questions like this must be answered.
For instance, when it comes to bread, I’m a twist and flipper meanuing that after removing the twist tie, I toss it, spin the bread bag and flip it over.
Men’s briefs. Who the hell came up with the idea of making us negotiate an “S” turn to get our junk out? If I’m in a hurry I say screw the slalom and go over the top instead.
