back on the B_I_G issues ….

5 Aug

One would imagine that, being empty-nesters would mean a noticeable reduction in the use of household consumables ….and to a point that is true.

However there is one item that we seem to go through at a phenomenal rate ….perhaps equal (or close to) that of the days of having both kids at home.  While we can’t live without it, we  often resent spending good money  ….just to flush it down the loo!! ..loo paper

Yep you guessed it …the humble toilet paper.

The fact that we are using it up at such a rate, has not escaped my notice…and had me wondering what is going on in the bathroom. BUT then I actually studied a new roll of toilet paper and made a cheeky discovery…

Like so many things I believe that (rather than increase the price) the rolls have been reduced… NOT that you would notice because the rolling is a little ‘looser’ or the cardboard cylinder a little fatter …meaning that the circumference of the roll looks and feels similar….Now that’s sneaky …

I wondered if I was imagining this strange phenomenon…so I ‘googled’ it only to find that the Financial Review is in full agreement with my theory … so  in a practical sense it’s enough to really give you the shits.
