Like most households we have a toilet paper dispenser mounted on the wall beside the toilet.
Now when your toilet paper runs out, you compress that little bar in the middle and take it out of the empty cardboard roll ...., and put it into the new roll ...., and clip it back in again!
With me so far?
O.K. So how did I lose that little bar?
I have been staring at the dispenser, (Minus the bar and toilet paper) for weeks now, while the paper roll sits on the top of the toilet tank, where I always have to contort myself to get at when the need arises.
I know I'll make it to the hardware store one of these days to get a replacement, (although I can't see them getting much call for this sort of thing) but I also came up with a few alternatives that look sort of interesting, and would be more of a conversation piece!
BUT, AFTER MUCH HEMMING AND HAWING, AND A GREAT DEAL OF THOUGHT, YOUR INTREPID REPORTER CAME UP WITH THE PERFECT SOLUTION!
