Wiping the Habit...

My family has a "Pack A Day" habit. 
No not cigarettes.  Toilet paper.

We go through it like...well I'd say tissue paper, but that seems a obvious.  And redundant. 

I don't know how we do it...use so much toilet paper I mean.

I don't believe that collectively we go to the bathroom anymore than normal people.  I mean, Livi does drink a lot of juice...

I think they're just using so MUCH of it.  We're killing trees left and right...or should I say front and back.

I just realized that I was changing the roll in my bathroom every day.  In fact, we go through rolls so quickly we even kept a "back up" roll sitting on the pile of magazines next to the toilet.

How can a family of four use so much toilet paper??  I wanted to get to the bottom of this mystery (pun not intended...) so I spied on my kids wiping.  I realize this might be illegal in some states, but I felt like as a citizen of the Earth, it was my duty to find out how all of these resources were being used.

It's interesting to see each has their own methodology.  I won't go into details, but MAN - they do use a LOT of toilet paper.

Did you know there are people who don't even use toilet paper?  I'm not joking.  My massage therapist used to live with a guy who didn't wipe.  He was a Vegan and he believed his body was so clean that he didn't need it.

Ew. (Shutter...)  I don't think we want to go that route...

Does anyone else have this problem?  Is it my family alone that is responsible for the deforestation of the entire Southern Hemisphere?

Do I start rationing TP?
