...it's the small things in life...

so i've been debating about writing this blog because i know you'll think i'm weird.   i've been waiting and waiting to get over the excitement of my new toilet paper holder, but alas i can not. it's been two full weeks and i still can't help but think about the wonder of this new product every single visit to my bathroom. so i must blog and tell you about the upgrade available in the tp holder department. 
at first glance this looks like a standard holder, right? well, this new holder is amazing! and why should you care? just be honest and tell me how much you dread changing the toilet paper roll. you don't want to be the one who takes the last piece of paper because then you have to deal with the wretched springy thing in the middle. right? it may or may not pop off and land on the floor. or stay in the holder once you connect it again. well, let me introduce you to your future new best friend.
 
with a simple lift, you change your roll. no fumbling around with a cheap plastic spring holder. 
i must implore you to head to your nearest home depot RIGHT NOW. and take your checkbook because these babies ain't your typical $5 holders.. they are 25 bucks and worth every cent. brushed nickel and all! unfortunately i was unaware of my impending future fondness with my holder, so i tossed the box without noting the brand. forgive me please.
here's a parting shot of two new BFF's...

At that price, they should be made of gold and change the roll themselves!

That's really funny Bill. I laughed out loud! Maybe I'll hold out for a bit before getting one of these fancy TP holders until the prices go down a tad (I'll hold off on the TMI comment...)

Silence to the naysayers. I think that is fantastic and I may go get one tomorrow.

You crack me up!! That is so funny! and I can certainly relate, not sure I would spend $25 right now but idea is great!!

i would totally spend the money on that contraption if it would get Michael to change the roll once in awhile! ha!

i never in my life thought i'd see a picture of you next to your TP holder! aww.

WHAT...i've been replaced by a TP holder. i think i'll go lock myself in my bathroom and cry for awhile...oh yeah, i think my TP needs to be changed, never mind!
love you...your old bff.

That is hysterical!!! And a fabulous idea! I do live in a house with 4 boys who find changing the toilet paper tiresome and just plain exhausting!!

L said...

Haha, cute. I do dread changing the TP!

What my wife failed to mention was the strapping young man who put it in for her. You think she would give him some props...dangit!!

matt and ashley said...

Randel , that was hilarious about the TP roller. I know for a fact it is worth $25.00.

I paid $20.00 for a paper towel holder that stands straight up. The base is heavy and has rubber on the bottom so it would not slide.

I would not take a hundred dollars for it. I'd be afraid I couldn't find another one like it.
