When I come home with a new package of toilet paper, I unwrap the rolls and store them under the sink in the bathrooms (or in our hall linen closet if I'm really stockpiling).
I've used this system for years and my family knows where to look for a new roll when they need it. Even the 3 year old knows!
Why store toilet paper unwrapped?
- Unwrapped toilet paper saves time and aggravation later. Seriously, have you ever tried to sit on the toilet, wrestle a giant package of toilet paper out from under the sink, and pry a roll out? All at 2 AM in the morning, while trying not to wake a sleeping baby in the next room?
- Children will never unwrap toilet paper and put it on the roll.
- Children MIGHT pull an unwrapped roll of toilet paper out of the cabinet and set it on the counter if they use the last of the current roll.
Trust me! It's a good system!
