Never in a MILLION years would I have thought I would see the day where security had to guard the toilet paper isles in stores because people were wiping the shelves clean! That’s right, we live in the day and time where there is a toilet paper shortage and not a square to spare! Desperate times call for desperate measures but don’t panic, we have five alternatives for you to use.
Oh No! There’s NO Toilet Paper!
As I write this article we are currently under a global quarantine due to the Coronavirus AKA COVID-19. Store shelves across the United States have become bare as customers started hoarding supplies out of fear and greed. From my understanding, they are worth more than gold right now. Many stores started limiting the amount customers could purchase and violence was witnessed in some cases, all over the paper we use to wipe our butt. I kid you not.
I can honestly say I may have been in the same situation had we never moved off the grid. Not to mention living through hurricanes on the coast for the last twenty-two years. Don’t get me wrong, we still use the fluffy white stuff on rolls. However, we are not panicked by the empty Charmin shelves. We know of alternatives that are very doable in the time of need.
