Introduction: Run Out of Toilet Paper 1/12th As Often

Picture of Run Out of Toilet Paper 1/12th As Often

Have a big wall next to your toilet and don't like running out of toilet paper? Mounting more toilet paper holders on the wall is a simple way to keep it from happening.

Step 1: Install Twelve Toilet Paper Holders

My friend Michal and I picked up 12 wooden toilet paper holders from Ikea for $1.99 a piece and hung them on the wall of our bathroom. Now we run out of toilet paper a lot less - plus different size people can take toilet paper from whatever roll is most comfortable for them. I know this isn't exactly the most ground breaking idea - but I cant' say enough about the positive impact this has made on my life.

If your living with lefty's and righty's, and your walls permit, you can hang the holders from both walls and really take bathroom convenience to the next level.

Lol so funny you use as much toilet paper

charlieanderin (author)2013-07-22

it's funny, my friend Michael and I came up with this idea too. our reason was similar. huge empty wall = huge potential and now all your toilet rolls have storage! nice to see someone has implemented this.

This is so funny! Love the idea! Thanks for sharing.

laughingcoyote (author)2012-12-24

Ingenious! No space unnecessarily wasted storing unused rolls.

Klesa (author)2012-04-12

So... OMG! On the bottom!?!?!?! I so do over the top!!!! Not the bottom! :)

Very creative, and above all thrifty, though looking at the pic this 'ible has certainly reignited the seat up/seat down debate!

You know what would be cool, Toilet paper that's coloured. It would make this look much more colourful.

Future filmaker (author)ikoda2008-10-23

thats a good idea, then you cant see the umm... stuff you wipe on it.....

My advice is see a Doctor immediately if its coming out black..

ikoda (author)Future filmaker2008-10-23

Lol. Maybe not dark colours. Florescent. =D

mman1506 (author)ikoda2009-04-05

glow in the dark toilet paper!!!!!

kibbler (author)mman15062009-04-05

How about glow-in-the-dark edible paint? "Mommy, my poop is neon green!" "No more Pop Tarts for you!"

you earned a subscription for that!

mman1506 (author)kibbler2009-04-05

that reminds me of when my brother ate hulk green cotton candy and all his poop was neon green

oh boy! we all love radiation!

bowmaster (author)mman15062009-04-05

Or toilet paper with a blue and green flames paint job.

A Geiger counter

THIS IS SO FUNNY! I LOVE THIS!!! The one modification I would make is to put different brands, patterns, and grades of rolls.

connorcancount! (author)Jollyrgr2007-09-10

haha yeah and then guests would always feel at home, being able to use thier favorite type

Obediah (author)connorcancount!2009-08-28

1 ply for the enviornmentalist, 2 ply for those that wish to enjoy themselves.

Doctor Freeman (author)Obediah2010-09-12

when i wipe i wrap it around my finger until you cant see the top (about 32 ply lol i know tmi)

i mean pieces of tp

Derin (author)Obediah2010-04-08

Here they have 6ply TP...

Kaelessin (author)2010-07-02

hmmm . . .your mention of taking from whatever roll is most comfortable made me think of an interesting psychology experiment: to somehow do this to a public restroom and monitor roll levels . . .i wonder which rolls would have the most . . . .erm . . .traffic

Doctor Freeman (author)Kaelessin2010-09-12

lol wow that is Good idea but try doing it a resturant that make people go poop like a pizza a hut

wecanclean (author)2010-06-21

Holy Sh**!! LOL

spylock (author)2010-03-11

Do different brands and grades.

thepelton (author)2010-03-04


jimyel (author)2010-02-25

 hilarious idea! this is a really good one.

but i have a question, where did you get that bin from/how did you make it?

northcoastnomad (author)2009-07-13

Now THATS a serious case of OCD. Lmao Oh btw I just thought of something. . . Do they sell coloured toilet paper? Make it more stylistic lol

H3xx (author)northcoastnomad2009-10-02

Actually they do. You can get Black toilet paper online (Google it). Also the grocery store I work at carries Easter colored toilet paper. (baby blue, light green, and pink.)

northcoastnomad (author)H3xx2009-10-02

Sweet! xD

Yerboogieman (author)2009-08-22

I think toilet paper holders are a hassle, with a loose roll, just wrap it around your hand a few times.

BERTBOY13 (author)2009-07-29

HAHA this idea is making me PMSL but the thing is you are right!!!

This is my suggestion:

Make a 3x3 grid, so there are nine rolls. *Somehow* have the individual sheets on each roll have an X or an O alternated between sheets on every roll. Then, you could have a game of ticktacktoe with the other restroom users!

lbaran (author)2008-03-30

I don't know.. I see an art exhibit in a local gallery. Puttin a colored roll in geometric patterns might get someone some $ as an eclectic new artist! Doesn't anyone else think it could be in a modern art exhibit? What is the artist _really_ trying to say here. :)

plasticpopcorn4 (author)lbaran2009-04-09

haha yeah... mix in some color and fix the lighting a bit HILARIOUS, PRACTICAL (albeit space taking), and ARTSY :D
