At what point do you start freaking out about running out of tp? I just say I was down to 3 mega rolls of Charmin ultra and felt the need to rush out for more and i'm not even flaring at the moment!!!

I have to laugh at myself.

Ha ha! I am the same way. I always buy the jumbo pack and make sure it is evenly distributed b/w all the bathrooms!

I buy 2 jumbo packs - one for the upstairs bathroom and one for the downstairs. You can NEVER have too much toilet paper! :) But if I am down to 4 in the upstairs bathroom then I have to run out and get some more.

I buy the super bags at Sam's and if there are fewer than three rolls in the bathrooms I fill them. I am convinced I now have "TP Radar" that goes off in my head when we are getting low. tongue

I use the Northern double rolls super absorbency in the jumbo pack and I actually let the pack get down to 2 with the 3rd on the roller before we get more. I have found even at my worst it takes us more than 24 hours to go through a roll of that so I don't panic about it. I actually have hubby trained that when he sees the rolls are down to 2 he buys more before I have to say anything.

Oh yeah I have a bonus here. . .. hubby works in a supermarket bakery so he's in the store all the time, I'm never more than 12 hours away from restocking anything we may need which also reduces the panic mode.

Heck, whenever we get below 12 rolls we go out and buy 2 more 24 packs. Being without tp is probably my worst nightmare! Target store brand is our favorite right now. It holds up to a lot of wipes and it doesn't shred. : )

I got down to 4 rolls in my primary bathroom and was sure to get 2 9-packs of northern double rolls! I had guests last week and they sure used a lot of tp!

I get the jumbo roll pack of 36 at Costco (like Sam's) and fill all the bathrooms in our condo. Space is limited but toilet paper is something I will always make room for! :)

We buy 12 roll packs and I never let us get below two rolls in each bathroom before buying and storing a 12 pack in the hall closet. So we have anywhere from 18 to about 24 rolls of tp in the house at all times. But, I'm not obsessive about, not me. lol

The other day I saw a lady coming out of Target and her cart was literally filled with toilet paper. I just had to smile and thought either TP is on sale or she's got IBD! Hehe

I buy the 20 roll packs of Scott like every shopping trip...I think right now we have about 32 rolls at home!!!! Once the reserve 20 pack gets opened, I buy another one ASAP. It's a little ridiculous...I just keep wishing I had bought stock in Kimberly-Clark!!! I'm a sucker for Scott- all the other tp's leave lint on your butt!
