Do you limit how many sheets of toilet paper your family uses?

I saw that Charmin commercial where the momma bear has the baby bear use 3 sheets.
I guess you can do that if you don't mind pee and poo all over your hands...

  • I am thinking about installing those kind they have in public restrooms, gives you a bit, and makes you work for more, LOL! I swear to goodness we use an enormous amount of toilet paper!

  • I tell my kids '4 squares at a time. Use 4 squares first and if you need to get 4 more that's fine' because otherwise they will wrap 1/2 the freakin' roll around their hand. I had to put some kind of limit on it!

  • I am trying to get my son to use less... he uses so much he clogs the toilet. But three sheets? Heck no!

  • I am trying to get my younger two sons to use a more sheets. Both think they can get things clean with just TWO sheet. YUCK! My oldest son clogged the toilet a few times when he was little and now he has convinced his brothers that they are going to clog the toilet if they use more than two sheets. UGH!

  • Yes I do. The kids would use half the roll if I didn't set a limit!

  • I don't give a set #, I just don't want the toilet clogged. I use 10 sheets myself, not that I sit there and count them out - it was a discussion my mom and I had, and I counted after unrolling some for use the next time I used the toilet. 3 sheets is not nearly enough.

  • LOL, haven't had that problem. My son actually uses a moderate amt of tp, enough to get the job done without clogging the toilet.

  • No, I never even thought about it till now. I wouldn't see the need to micromanage my family that much, but I guess others have said there's a tendency for kids to use too much and clog the toilet. I'm lucky that hasn't happened at my ouse. I remember my mom obsessing about how much toilet paper went in the toilet at a time; I never put it together why. Maybe she was afraid we'd clog it up, or someone already had and I didn't know about it or recall it happening.

  • No, though I do try to get them to use less, simply b/c my toilets clog easily.
