Tissue HACK

So last week when I was sick fighting the Head Cold of Doom, I ran out of tissues-- about an hour after Chris had left to go play golf.

There was no way I was getting up and driving to the store to get more, so I improvised.

What looks like a normal box of tissues...

Is actually a tissue HACK.

I grabbed a roll of the soft guest room toilet paper (yea, we have softer toilet paper for the guests) and it fit perfectly into the box.

What's more, is that I absolutely HATE buying paper products. Toilet paper, paper towels, tissues... for some reason it bugs me. I guess because I'm paying so much money for something completely disposable.  Necessary, but disposable. I usually buy a huge amount at once so that I don't have to think about it for a while. (Which reminds me, has anyone seen this?? I hate buying toilet paper but...no.)

Because I loved this hack idea so much, and because I kinda like the pattern on the box, I put a piece of velcro on the tabs. This way, I can continue to replace the tissue on the cheap with a roll of toilet paper. Since I normally only buy the cheapest tissue for the occasional nose blow or makeup smudge, the quality won't matter.

Nifty idea! And I stuck to what mom told me about buying the cheap-o toilet paper for the guest bedroom and I have found it is actually pretty damn good. I think it's cute that you and toot sacrifice your butts for your company.
