My goodness! Never in my life would I have thought I’d be putting a title such as “Toilet Paper Commemorative Ornament” on a blog post! Who could have seen this coming?
Well, we always know that when life hands us lemons, the best thing we can do is make lemonade. I decided to make toilet paper ornaments with my lemons, so to speak.
I’ve never understood hoarding things and I’ve certainly never understood people who are hoarding to the detriment of their fellow humans. I’ve heard horror stories about fights and even thefts of employees’ restrooms and their toilet paper in local businesses. I’m sure if that’s happening in my small town, there are even worse stories elsewhere. To have come out of this with toilet paper was a skill all its own!
Fortunately for me, I like shopping sales and I had a partial pack here and had just bought an extra pack because it was on sale just before all of what’s being dubbed the “Toilet Paper Apocalypse of 2020” happened.
Some of my family members and neighbors weren’t so fortunate though and they are also high risk for COVID-19 so I’ve been helping them out with their shopping and have made sure they now have toilet paper. The limits stores have placed on these items are making a major difference. I really feel for anyone on a strict budget who can’t purchase ahead, such a senior citizens on a fixed income. It’s heartbreaking really but I’ve tried to do everything I can to make sure that any of them in my orbit knows I’m here to help them. If you are capable of doing this, it’s such a blessing to you yourself to do these things to help others during a crisis. They are blessed, sure, but I feel even more blessed personally because there’s nothing better than putting someone else’s needs above your own time. Of course, you have to watch these things because some like to take advantage but that’s another story for another day, maybe.
Back to the toilet paper ornaments, I came up with these to sort of commemorate being able to have this treasure this year. You truly feel like a “Survivor”, no doubt!
I have these listed in my shop and you can see them by clicking here if you are needing one for yourself or as a gift for a friend.
Please stay safe and healthy in all you do
