Errr - ok...

Japanese loo seats are simply seats with a built in bidet.
Not a macerator in sight!

I buy a pack of 9 when needed. Being part way through that pack means I currently have 7 including the one in use. This is normal buying and I have not bought extra for any reason. A single roll lasts me almost a month.

Our bog rolls come from online company "Who gives a crap" made from recycled paper wrapped in paper, no plastic at all. We had a box delivered just before the panic buying idiots started. Down to about 10 now between 3 of us so another order going in soon. Did see toilet rolls in Aldi the other day.
Living with two self employed musicians who are just having two years off the chancellors announcement this evening is quite important.

No more or no less that normal.

6 each in the downstairs toilet and our en-suite and 5 in the second en-suite.

A bit of a personal question isn't it :wink: ...haha

We have 4 loos and just say they are well stocked but always have been. Our house is like a hotel at times with the amount of comings and goings, obviously that's stopped so we might have a few more than necessary.

The odd thing is throughout this crisis and from the very beginning I've never seen anyone with more than a couple of packs of loo roll in their trolley. The fact many had a pack or two when ordinarily they might not is probably what bust the system. An extra pack of loo roll is hardly hoarding but when everyone does it at once it suddenly is - then the press got hold of it and the rest is history.

One had to purchase 3 packs of 18 to get the discount and they were piled high in the store as usual. Farm Foods have had this on offer for years like this. Not been in to see if its still available. How quickly things can change. Dont all get the bums rush now, i need to get there first. :lol:
We store them under the bed and in the bottom of the hot cupboard. :wink:


They had the offer until about 10 days ago but kept running out of bogroll first thing. They've now got more stock in, but limiting everyone to one pack of 18 at the pro rata price which I think is very commendable of them.

I've answered 0 - 4 but really it's 1 - 5 and I can't be bothered to look. I buy a pack of four which is the right size for a pannier, and when it's down to one I'll buy another pack next time I'm shopping. The whole panic buying passed my by, I hadn't needed to buy any while they were short and there's plenty in the shops now.

I've got 8. I haven't bought any since this health situation started and have no plans to buy any until May at the earliest.

Not a trolley, but I've seen one man with a car boot full. I was going to call him a rude name, but then I decided not to because he might have been to one of the cash and carries mentioned above and not unloaded since, or he might be a volunteer delivering many people's shopping. You never know.
