I hope this happens this time. Every time they say it will and it doesn't, I feel like Charlie Brown kicking the football yet Lucy snatches it away.

LOL, however...you mustn't have a tween or many women in your house for it to last that long I can hear the thing spinning right now

i used the last 2 eggs last night for Greek Lemon Soup, add those to my list! I'm gonna be so predictable...maybe they'll have all the "essentials" together in area like they do at Christmas and I'll join the other lemmings & head straight for it.

I have to buy that much twice a month! My wife uses about 2 rolls a day I think! lol

I told her we were cutting back expenses, she was limited to 2 squares of paper per visit lol I think I get to move back into the bedroom soon! haha

LOL my husband teases that every time we get snow, people are only interested in sitting home and making french toast (buying out the milk, eggs, bread).

Eggs are on sale at harris teeter right now, so that's as good a reason to buy them as any.

I buy more than 1 of the 24 packs at a time. The shelf above the washer has been stacked almost to the ceiling with TP at times, but I never have to pay full price or worry about running out.

I've got a 16 year old daughter and we still have NO IDEA what she does with the TP because each and every bathroom requires a roll per day!!!

if you want to cut down on TP use buy the flushable wet wipes. One of those does the work of 1/4 a roll of TP.

My plumber call's those things "the plumber's full employment guarantee".

We just use Scott's....we have three kids and Scott's claim that it last longer is true.

Raleigh always seems to be along that "fault line" that is the break for snow/ice/wintry mix....makes it so hard to call.

You don't mess with a woman and her TP. It looks like we have a pretty good chance at getting some accumulation. I certainly hope so, my kids are already planning for it.
