Have you ever wondered if there are little things you can change that make a big impact on the way you spend money or the waste you produce as a family? I often think about the small tweaks we can make that have a lasting effect on things that are important to us, like the environment. As a budget-conscious mom, if those eco-friendly changes also save us money, then even better! One chance we recently made was switching from boxes of tissues to Tissue on a Roll. With three little boys, we go through paper products in our home crazy fast. Between bathroom use, blowing snotty noses, cleaning up messes, and little ones who decide it is fun to pull out an entire tissue box at once, the cost and waste levels are high. So when I discovered Tissue on a Roll I was really intrigued. By replacing one box of tissues with one roll of toilet paper, you save $1.35 (sometimes more) each time. That is a huge savings! And toilet paper is more recyclable than facial tissues.
Tissue on a Roll dispensers make it easy to switch because they allow you the look and design of a tissue box without the additional waste. You simply remove the lid from the dispenser, put in a roll of toilet paper (any size and style works, even the mega rolls!), slide the inner tube out of the toilet paper roll (or to even more eco-friendly, use tubeless toilet paper rolls!), Feed the tissue through the top, and put the lid back on. The toilet paper tears off easily thanks to little teeth in the dispenser hole, so you aren’t wasting a bunch when you pull some out to use it. My kids even help themselves now when they need to wipe their nose or clean up a mess!
I’m pretty picky about style and I love that these match and blend in well in any room. I have one on my bedside table, one in each bathroom, and one in our living room that matches our wall paint! White, black, even two shades of grey (you can never go wrong with grey) — the dispensers are sleek and modern and as stylish as they are functional. I’ll seriously never go back to tissue boxes!
Can you believe such a little thing can make such a big difference? I can’t even imagine how much money we’ll save each year now that we aren’t buying boxes of tissues, not to mention the waste we’ve eliminated. Budget-friendly + eco-friendly = Win Win! So tell me, are you going to make the switch? What little changes have you made that have had a big impact on your budget and/or the environment?
