Toilet Paper
Fri, 04-19-2013 - 2:09pm

I heard a stat on the radio this morning that made me chuckle, since we just talked toilet paper last week.

The average person uses 42 rolls of toilet paper a year.

That comes out to .8 of a roll a week per person.  Now there weren't any other details, like single roll, double roll, ply, etc.  But I thought that was interesting.

I swear I responded to this... but it's not here... weird! I thought I said that apparently those people who go through .8 roll per week are NOT using Scott!! LOL

I think we are all above average on that one.   If I was alone, I'd guess I'd go through slightly over one roll a week.

But, since our T.P. talk, I did realize that I do frequently pull a small amount to wipe down gunk on the counter, a soap drip from the liquid soap dispenser, a toothpaste blob, etc.
