I have been reading some grocery budget tips over here at this Raising Olives blog. I started implementing one of her tricks. You know when you are in a public restroom and the toilet paper is not a roll, but a flat thing? It's really annoying, because it is hard to get very much off of it. Well, now we try to mimic that idea in our house. Before I put a new roll of toilet paper out, I smash it down flat.
I have a few little ones here who take pleasure in grabbing a hold of the toilet paper & pulling & pulling & pulling. I am trying to slow that process down & give myself more time to catch them, before the whole roll is wasted.
The boat ride was fun, while it lasted.
When your mom is pinching pennies by being strict with the toilet paper, you have to be even more creative when in search of something fun to do.
