Doesn’t it seem like ages ago when we set our alarms for 5 am to get in line for toilet paper? On the mornings my husband came home with a 12 pack of Charmin Ultra he looked and sounded like he won the lottery that morning.
It was like Christmas morning in the month of March and part of April.
He was so proud of his innate hunter and gathering skills down the household goods aisle. I stashed rolls of toilet paper throughout the house just in case we had to ration our toilet paper rolls for an extended period of time.
And, now five months later? I am just now ready to buy my first 12 pack of Charmin since March.
Toilet Paper Roll Hack
Which if you know me, is how I got to thinking about toilet paper roll hacks.
Over the weekend I hauled out my fall decor. It is one of my favorite days of the year. It signals to my family that fall is in the air.
For my husband? Not so much. Instead, for him, it signals the end of clutter-free counters, hutches and this table.
I think what worries him most is how the decor appears to double in the days ahead.
My decor theme this year is more fall everything this year. Right?
I purchased these beautiful fall leaf stems at Hobby Lobby and assembled them in my go-to metal buckets.
Unfortunately, the weight of the stems caused the metal buckets to fall down under their weight.
I added pine cones to the buckets to weigh the buckets down a bit, but those stems are strong
(and now back-ordered).
And then I got this crazy idea that empty toilet paper rolls might contain those stems.
So I did something that my family would never be surprised by I unraveled a few rolls that were nearing their end (oh, no pun intended). #wink
You guys, I didn’t even have to fiddle fart with the toilet paper roll. When I bent the bottom part of the stem it fit perfectly into the toilet paper roll.
The toilet paper roll was sturdy enough to hold the stem AND fit into the floral buckets. And no one in my family will ever know what is keeping those fall stems upright and tucked into place.
for the fall decor pumpkin palooza.
Now is the time to send a group text to the family that you need toilet paper rolls. Just asking that question in a family group text is sure to get your kids curiosity and a reply.
And wait until you tell them you are getting ready to decorate for fall. #wink
