I don’t mind vacuuming…
I don’t mind doing dishes (even when our dishwasher was broken for 3 months!)…
I don’t mind cooking…
I don’t mind cleaning…
…but one thing I don’t like to do??
Change the toilet paper holder.
I know…it only takes a whopping 2.3 seconds to swap out the roll but I hate it… don’t really know why but it is such a repetitive,mundane task for what? I have better things to do with that 2.3 seconds (like um, blog or read blogs tee hee!)
What is a toilet paper holder anyway? Well -- according to wikipedia -
A toilet roll holder, also known as a toilet paper dispenser, is an item that holds a roll of toilet paper. There are at least five types of holders:
- A horizontal piece of wire mounted on a hinge, hanging from a door or wall.
- A horizontal axle recessed in the wall.
- A vertical axle recessed in the wall
- A horizontal axle mounted on a freestanding frame.
- A freestanding vertical pole on a base.
That sounds a bit…COMPLICATED!!
So….I made a conscious decision when we moved to this house to
Instead I use buckets & baskets & other cool containers to hold multiple rolls at a time – like
a vintage enamel bucket in our utility room bathroom - (love it!)
master bedroom has a basketful & a spare in a cute tray/magazine rack thingy -
Shutters put together to form a column & rolls are lines up one by one inside in the main bathroom that the kids & guests share-
extra rolls in a basket in this same bathroom
all of this results in easy access, pretty display (for toilet paper!) & 2.3 seconds saved x a million rolls.
Try it – you’ll like it!
