I was curious the other day, and took a look at the history of toilet paper:
(At what our great grand parents used:)
And boy was I glad, that I did.

I discovered that before toilet paper was invented, that people used news papers or catalogs, or anything else they could find.
(I stopped there, and didn’t go back any farther: I wasn’t that curious.)
--------------------------------------------------
The reason that I am glad that I looked this up, is because I happen to have a few stacks unused phone books in my possession.

I never like to throw anything away, but these were kind of in the way, so I was just about ready to toss them. (But not any more.)

I will keep them stacked away, for if things really get bad, and we run out of what we regularly use.

Nice!! I knew being a pack-rat would come in handy. Thanks for passing on your research!! Seriously, a good sized phone book will severely reduce the risk of accidentally using poison oak/ivy/sumac. Going on a trip? Just rip out the Andersons - Averys and you're good to go.
