I was at the library recently, browsing through some issues of House Beautiful. They were featuring a toilet paper holder that doesn’t have a spring, it pivots: “The arm rotates 90 degrees for easy roll replacement. No more pieces springing across the room!”
I thought “hey, that’s cool, and would be quite helpful.” It wasn’t a design I had heard of. Then this line followed the description: “Jeton Toilet Paper Holder, from $997.”
No, I’m not missing a decimal point. That really is just under a grand for a fricking toilet paper holder! Like, O. M. G.! You have got to be kidding me!
I guess the price is for the designer, because, as it turns out, Moen also has a pivoting tp holder. I found it when I went looking on my favorite shopping site (Amazon, of course):
Nah, I’m too much of a cheapskate. After all, I can outfit the rest of my bathroom for $982.36, as well as my kitchen and probably some accessories for the living room as well. Oh, I can also get at least one set of sheets and a new comforter for the bed…3 new beds for my cats…and I’ll probably have some left over even after that. Because I paid less than $15 for my toilet paper holder. 🙂
