The Right Way?

Is there a right way to load toilet paper?

I always thought so.

The right way to load toilet paper is with the roll facing out. Its easier to pull. Right?

I am learning that sometimes there can be more than one right way.

Isn't that shocking?!?

If you load your toilet paper with the roll facing the wall it can help prevent huge amounts of toilet paper from ending up in the toilet. If you have newly potty-trained children, like I do, this can be an issue.

Note: This will not prevent your preschoolers from emptying a roll of toilet paper for the "fun" of it. I'm not sure if there is a solution to that problem. :)

Isn't that a fun little tip! I learned it at FamilyLife's Weekend to Remember. You just never know what little jewels you will glean from a marriage conference!

So, how do you load your toilet paper rolls?

Thanks for sharing this little jewel of wisdom! We do need to come up with an invention though to keep that 2 yr. old from emptying the whole roll!!

We are remodeling our bathroom(s) right now and we just got a tp holder that holds two rolls...one for each way :)

evidently I load it the WRONG way! I've heard this tip before, but just a habbit I can't break! And I'm pretty sure my kids would still figure out a way to get too much TP!

i never thought there was a right way 'til i married jaret. your picture on the right is apparently the correct way. (at least according to him) and now i'm used to it, too. :)

Well how about that, just this morning I had to take a roll of toilet paper off the dispenser because someone put it on backwards...acording to my standards. Ha.
BTW, I love the weekend to remember conferences.
