Toliet Paper

I am very particular about toilet paper and I will buy one brand and one brand only. Northern Extra Plush!!
Now for the part where I think you all might think that I am a bit strange.
Don’t laugh, but I love the look of toilet paper rolls stacked. Yes, you heard right. I am not sure why, but I like  it.
I am in the process of cleaning out my laundry room/The Pit/The utility room. Hubby has promised to paint it for me, more on that later.

I have a shelf that I keep my toilet paper, paper towels and cleaning rags on. It is a  totally utilitarian piece, but I love the way it looks.

Okay, now you can laugh. Even I think it is strange that I love the look of stacked toilet paper. I understand my love for a stack of white towels, but even I will admit I think it is a bit strange that I love stacks of toilet paper.
I did find an image that I think you will all appreciate……

It appears I am not the only one that enjoys a good toilet paper stack!!
So tell me, do you have any strange likes? How do you feel about toilet paper stacking?

“Enjoy the Process” Of:
Stacking your toilet paper or however you like to store it!!


I will be posting the ,"Question of the Day" on Fridays of each week. It will give us all a week to think of a question and all weekend to give your answers in the comments!! Thank you all for letting me know that you like this idea!!  Now email me your questions at:
Subject: Question of the Day!!

I love your post today. I have a whole drawer in my new bathroom with toilet paper neatly stored. My upstairs bathrooms each have the tp stacked... and yes, I also have a cabinet in my kitchen with stacked paper towels. The image you found is wonderful!! Imagine?
I am so looking forward to your Friday Question of the day~ Your blog has been such a find!!!

So funny but I guess it fulfills the organizer and "keeper of the house
in you! I think the all white orderly cabinet that you showed is quite impressive!! I do have to admit though I am not this way with a particular item I do like "stocking up", love seeing my mud room closet and pantry both full with multiples of things, like cleaning products, paper towels, foods,etc........I especially love when its super organized and orderly. Another good question...will have to think of a good one to ask you!

I love stacked TP! And, the other image looks like modern art. My daughter did something similar once in our bathroom when I asked her to put all the TP away from Costco and I snapped a picture just because it looked so cool!

Love laundry/mud rooms, so I am looking forward to seeing your utility room update :)

I love stacked toilet paper too and also paper towels! Nothing prettier than a pretty basket stuffed with TP!

Love white towels stacked also and beautiful soaps in clear glass containers on display.

Sounds normal to me! LOL!


Karen said...

Kudos Kathysue for making TP look chic!

quintessence said...

Too funny!! You are so neat - I don't stack mine - but it is in a closet so it's out of view!! I love that you decided to do the Question of the Day - can't wait!!

You are too funny. I guess you could look at it from the view point, art comes in many types and styles...yours is a form of art. Looking forward to seeing the new paint job. hugs ~lynne~

I love everything stacked and put away as well. We shop at Costco for our paper products among other things and my husband will sit everything down in the basement right next to the shelving. I of course have to put it away and I do take pride in stacking everything in a nice order!

Girl, you crack me up! BTW, I like my toilet paper in a basket! As long as it's there when I need it!

Splendid Sass said...

Well Kathysue,
There is one thing for sure. You want run out any time soon, haha!!
This is so funny. I stack mine in a basket and I like to stack it neatly too.
Guess I need to go check my stock.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

This is a really good post!!!!! I think what I love about this is the ORDER of ordinary things. And I love a good stash of stuff!

Jessie said...

I have seen that image before. I am sure most of us who loves design love things put away in an orderly manner so I won't blame you! I love stacking things, too!



I can relate!!! They are white ( which I love) and look good stacked! I think u are totally normal!!!

Debbie L. said...

Kathysue what an interesting post!
You are so funny and I have to tell you that anyone who could make a display of toilet tissue look so good deserves an award! LOL

I use Northern Plush too:)

Oh btw mind sharing where you got the wonderful chrome shelf unit?

Mary Ann Pickett said...

I do have a fear of running out so seeing it displayed instead of hidden in a cabinet looks like a great idea.

Kelly said...

This post makes me smile because I do this too! I stack mine in our linen closet, it looks great plus it's quicker when you are in need of a roll in a hurry:)

The Buzz Blog said...

I wish I had a toilet paper roll stack as stylish as that! Mine is actually under the sink - a nifty built-in that was there when we bought the house.

Sally@DivineDistractions said...

You crack me up! I love VIVA paper towels...white, no printing...plain white! The toilet paper stays hidden in the drawer in my dresser-goes-vanity....out of view! (This may all fall under the heading of TMI) LOL

Linda in AZ * said...

*** OK, Kathysue, I can DEFINITELY RELATE!!!

OUR TP is in the WC's closet's drawers/shelves, & I like it WRAPPED until it's going to be used... (~Yep, you guessed it!~ I don't want any DUST on it all!!! Grins!)...

You cracked me up here!!! Nice job, tho!!! (And ALWAYS fun to chuckle, too!)...
