Just after her 3rd birthday last year (about mid February), Sissy decided that using the potty sounded like a good idea. Only she didn't like the looks of the little plastic potty we had bought her. She wanted the puffy Dora seat on the big potty.
Fine - whatever works right? Once she made up her mind, that was it. She had maybe 2 pee accidents and a couple of poop accidents.
She wore pull ups at night for another few months after that. I wanted to make sure she was waking up dry for a few weeks before we ditched the pull ups.
Visions of money savings danced in my head! No more diapers, wipes and pull ups! Hooray! (Well, I do buy the flushable wet wipes for the kids).
So, we have four people using three bathrooms around here. For whatever reason, we seem to fly through the TP.
My mom always bought Quilted Northern and that's what I have always bought. A few weeks ago, I couldn't find it at my regular shopping haunt, but they DID have this:
Good enough. Close enough.
Dudes, this stuff is THREE PLY! It is awesome!
Even the Evil Twin noticed a difference. He asked me what brand of TP I had bought and I said, "Quilted Northern". But, he said, "There's something different about this." I said, "Oh, it's that new Ultra Soft or something like that."
Well, friends, I may be cheap, but this is one spot in life it pays to spend a little extra. No one wants cheap, scratchy, thin toilet paper.
With my family, it looks like all that wonderful savings is going down the toilet (pun intended), because my crew can go through a 12 pack of TP like no one's business! And, it's not that Sissy is using a big wad of it - she still requires assistance with getting the TP, and I only give her about 4 squares. I use the wet wipes for poop clean up - and usually only one or two of those, depending.
I may as well just put it at the top of my shopping list every week. :-)
