Squish and save

I had an email from Cheapskater Shelley, asking if I could solve the riddle of how her household could go through so much toilet paper.  The answer is almost unbelievably simple: squish the roll.

Saving on toilet paper is especially important if you have children. They tend to use far more than they should. Before placing a roll of toilet tissue on the holder, squish it flat. This controls the amount of toilet paper that comes off by stopping each time it comes around to the bent part.  You'll find your TP consumption will drop dramatically as there is no more free-rolling.
