You know how I mentioned how I’d just moved & was super-duper sick?
Well, when you move to a new place, you need to buy essentials. No matter how sick you are. So, I made a really quick trip to the Target nearby, in the middle of a weekday, so as avoid infecting large groups of ppl. Grabbed my stuff & went out.
This was before I went to the doc, so I didn’t know how serious it was just yet. I was a little loopy on some dayquil though.
Well, being loopy & still being frugal, does not a good combination make.
I needed toilet paper.
Went to the paper area, & they had “premium toilet paper” on sale for $5.79. Well, next to it, they had “ULTRA premium toilet paper”, same # of rolls, ALSO for $5.79.
Well, mamma didn’t raise no fool.
Who buys regular premium, when you can get the same thing, ultra-premiumized, for the same price?!?!
Well, it’s been a bit over a month that I’ve had this toilet paper in my house, & it’s driving me CRAZY! Now that I’m well again, I have no idea what to do about it.
Turns out ultra-premium toilet paper means that it’s 3-ply, instead of 2. I felt guilty enough when I had 2-ply paper. So, now I find myself separating the plys!! Yes, seriously!
Why don’t they warn you about that? They should put the “3-ply” part in large bold letters so ppl know.
& who are these ppl? The ones that thought that an extra ply was needed on toilet paper in this day & age? Don’t they realize how wasteful that is? Who thought that would be a good idea? & how is Target, a store that promotes their Earth-friendly products, even carrying this stuff? I hope that buyer for Target’s been fired, that they will stop carrying this wasteful crap.
Meanwhile, I’m having issues every time I have to go to the bathroom. & spending my time separating plys, which is only making this stuff last longer, so I’m reminded it’s in my house that much longer.
