Livin' the Two-Ply Life

(If you are easily-offended you may want to pass on today’s message and wait for tomorrow.)

I’m a two-ply guy.

I learned a long time ago that, for a variety of reasons, it’s better for me to buy two-ply bathroom tissue.

When I was young, carefree and broke (as opposed to now when I’m older, burdened and broke) I chose the cheapest brands to save a little money and they usually were one-ply. But, I realized that I used twice as much.

And, when I went to the homes of friends, especially those who were married to women with senses of style and comfort, they always had two-ply. On business trips, when I stayed in better hotels I’d steal the extra roll of two-ply so I could enjoy it for a week or so.

The turning point was when I stopped and compared the prices. For a only a couple of dollars more I could enjoy the comfort of two-ply and it gave me a sense of living a…mmm…better life.

The investment has been more than worth it.

Look around in your life and ask yourself this question: “Where am I skimping, scraping and trying to save pennies that, if I invested just a little more, would raise my standard of living, give me a more positive feeling about myself and add more fun?”

I’m tellin’ ya, livin’ the two-ply life is worth it.

  1. The old adage, 'What you buy cheap today may cost your more tomorrow' has never been more true in today's throw-it-away and buy another society...agreed, go with the two-ply.
