Darling Husband and I go through a roll of TP a day. Seriously. And it always seems to happen in the middle of the night when the pregnant lady has to get up and stumble to the bathroom at 3am. I’ve learned to keep a roll on the sink before we go to bed so I can just reach for it when the roll runs out.
Darling Husband uses half the roll every time he uses the bathroom. He also makes a point to use the TP rather than tissues when he sneezes/ coughs/ has to blow his nose. If he sneezes and needs to wipe his nose or something, he will abandon the tissue box beside the bed to walk to the BR and use TP.
TP is expensive and I’ve tried to tell him he needs to cut back on the usage but then he gets all, “I’m 28 years old! I know how to wipe myself and I’ll keep wiping until I feel clean!” I would rather him be clean but if it takes half a roll…there’s an issue.
So ladies… how often do you have to change the roll?

Maybe once a week, probably less.

I think it’s about once every week and a half or so, but we have 4 bathrooms, 3 of which get used regularly, so if it were only one bathroom it would probably be 2 times a week
EDIT: We also buy the double rolls, which obviously take longer to use up.

I have IBS so I go through a lot of TP. Plus I just started a form of NFP that requires me to do TP CM checks before and after. So lets just say we probably go through 2-3 rolls a week. And I’m obsessive about wiping until I’m clean too.

We have three bathrooms, so we don’t use a whole roll in any one of them each day, but I’ll bet we do use the equivalent of a roll among all three. I always figured that was one of the issues with a same-sex marriage–women use more than men as a general rule.

2 or 3 times a day, but there are 6 of us here.

Atleast once every other day…I literally pee ALLL the time! It is ridiculous. I will get home from work @ 930 and pee like 3 times before I fall asleep around 12.

What the bejeezes are guys doing with all the toilet paper? I work all day so I maybe us our restroom three times a day. Where the heck is all the toilet paper going? I go through at least a roll a day, the giant ones, and there is only three of us in the house.

Yeah, I don’t know. We have two bathrooms so I don’t know how much we got through in a day.

We have 3 bathrooms, so on average, I would say we I change one roll out about every week and a half or so. It took me a very long time to “train” my hubby on how much toilet paper to use. I actually resorted to his and hers toilet paper. I work from home, so I am home more than him, so I bet him that I used way less than him. He didn’t believe me, so I divided up the toilet paper evenly and proved it to him. Needless to say he has cut down on his usage, somewhat. Occasionally, he will still use a half a roll to blow his nose, but mostly, he is much more conservative in his usage. I really don’t understand why they have to use so much each time.

@noritake22: Lol @ “we I” …..so true!
I honestly dont know now that I think about it. We probably go through a couple rolls a week – I might have to start counting now haha! Fiance has UC and has to use the bathroom more frequently than most people, so we go through a lot!

I’m thinking of secretly starting his and her rolls so he can see exactly how often he uses TP versus me. Maybe it will wake him up, like a PP said.
