Teaching What My Mother In Law Didn't...

Ok, today's post is going to be a bit different.  I've posted tutorials before that were for YOU - my amazing readers.  I'm going to assume, though that most of you are women.  And as a woman, you probably already know how to do the task I'm about to teach.  So this tutorial is for men.  And boys.  Especially my man and my boys!

Changing The Empty Roll Of Toilet Paper

THIS is what I found when I went into the bathroom this morning.
It's also what I find at least twice a week!  This is an empty toilet paper roll.
An empty roll is NOT what I want to find when I need to "go!"
I thought maybe dh put a new roll on the back of the toilet...

Are you KIDDING me?!  
Really?!  UGH.  

Ok, to fix this problem I'll need you to pay close attention.
Step 1: remove old roll by pushing the spring loaded toilet paper rod to one side.

Step 2: Remove cardboard roll from rod.

Now this is important and cannot be skipped.  
Step 3: Place empty cardboard roll into trash can.  Empty roll cannot be left on back of toilet!

Step 4: Get new roll of toilet paper.
*Note* The woman of the house will usually hide these in crazy places - 
like in a bathroom cabinet, so search high and low.  

Step 5: Slide new roll onto the toilet paper rod.

Step 6: Replace rod into toilet paper holder.  This is just like Step 1, only in reverse.

If you are successful in the above steps, THIS is what your finished product should look like!
Congratulations, you've just completed a little task that will make things easier for everyone!

*Note* For extra points, fold the first square under into a 
little arrow like they do in hotels.  

See how this roll almost has a heavenly glow?  
The world is a little bit nicer when the lady of the house does not have to 
ALWAYS replace the toilet paper roll!

Please feel free to share this with as many boys and men as you can.  I'm thinking about printing this into a step-by-step guide for my husband and sons.  Maybe one for each bathroom?


  1. Haha, I like this! No, actually I LOVE this. The same would appear to be the case in our house, and our toilet roll is open at one end which makes it even easier to slip the roll on and off!

  2. LOL!!!! So funny! My husband NEVER replaces the toilet paper roll, no matter how much I nag. Drives me crazy. Thanks for following me, I'm following you too!

  3. LOL I am going to share this with my husband!

    Thank you for the follow. i am following back!

  4. lol that cracks me up!! My husband is the same way! Too funny. Thanks for hoppin with us today! :) Of course you already know i'm a follower.

  5. hahahahhaaaa I just happen to see this at the bottom of your newest post, I totally made a sign for our bathroom because my MIL forgot to teach my DH that also!
