Default Do you even bother buying tissue paper?

I don't. I just use toilet paper most of time for blowing my nose. lol The other thread made me think of this.

We do, because it's cheaper with the amount we go through due to allergies.

ETA: Do you really call it tissue paper? We just call it tissues.. tissue paper is something you use to stuff gift bags to hide the gift with

Yes. Especially when I have a cold, using toilet paper wrecks my nose. Maybe our toilet paper isn't very high quality lol.

I don't, unless I have a cold. Then I want something soft. Otherwise I use toilet paper or even paper towels.

Yup. I have a sensitive nose. LOL But we also buy really nice, soft toilet paper, so I'll use that when we're out of kleenex.

I had a bad cold a few months ago. My nose was so sore and red from blowing it. It was really beginning to hurt to touch or rub a Kleenex or toilet paper against it at all. After all, paper is from wood. Ouch. So, I resorted to a large stack of hankies that I went through and then ran them through the wash and started all over again. lol. There's nothing better than a cotton handkerchief. But yeah, I keep a box of (what I call Kleenex, even if it's another brand) in all three of my bathrooms and one in the kitchen/family area on a low shelf and one in my den near my computer. I prefer them to toilet paper. I also wouldn't like to set out a roll of toilet paper in another room of my house besides the bathroom. In my cute little powder room, I put a square box (more expensive) that has pictures of red Adirondacks chairs and other sea side side scenes on each side. It matches perfectly. I hardly use them from that box, as they're uneconomical. They're saved for guests.

It's funny I worry about the difference of the cost of a square kleenex box from a rectangular one. I'm really spending too much on my landscaping project. I haven't tallied it up yet but I suspect it's over budget. I'm afraid to do the math. I guess if I concentrate on how a box of Kleenex costs a lot, I might be able to put this other thing out of my mind, right?

I call it Kleenex too and yes I have a box in almost every room and I'm very particular about the kind I buy. I always have it on me too - I blow my nose a lot lol

We occasionally have a box or two lying around. Usually we just use toilet paper though - it is not uncommon for the sick person in the house to keep a roll of TP with them at all times

Kleenex ruins my nose just as badly as TP does.
