Refill Kleenex

Nothing denotes civility and class like a box of Kleenex in a fancy floral box. Most men I know are just as happy with a roll of toilet paper, 2-ply, of course. Its cheaper than tissues and works just as well. However, when your lady wants to wipe away the tears from some chick flick video she talked you into renting, shes not going to dig your utilitarian tissue by the foot.

With a little ingenuity and deception a perfect compromise can be reached.

Step 1: Steal a box of tisues from your mom.

Splurge on an initial square box of tissues.

When the box is empty, slide kitchen knife under flaps on the side of the box and gingerly pry the sides open.

Step 2: Remove the tube

Cut the cardboard tube from the center of a roll of toilet paper and twist it until the tube comes out. Cut it off the toilet paper itself.

Step 3: Refill box

Slide the roll into the box, tape up the sides and pull the TP from the center. Badda Boom, Badda Bing, refillable tissues by the foot... wicked classy!

Great idea! Someone took all my tissues from my desk and left me an empty box to find this morning... so I think this is totally called for at work!
And it only took about a minute to refill... Takes longer to tell how to do it!
