The Frugal Minded Roommate!

Guys can be much cheaper than women!

Made this for Jay Seaver as part of my New Year's Resolution to caption people I hadn't traded with in awhile, and I think it has been a few years since I made him something. As I mentioned with the post in his trading folder:
The idea of this came from living with multiple females for awhile now and how much more bathroom supplies we buy compared to when I was living by myself. The picture brought that debate back to my mind and I figured it would make good fodder for a caption, and keep it grounded in a mundane nature yet still have some fun story wise.
It's pretty much a given that women will use more toilet paper, but when my GF first moved in, I had NO idea how much more. I honestly went through maybe 1 package (4 rolls) of TP every month when I was single, maybe even less. That became every 10 days or so, and became even worse when I gained custody of my daughter when she was 7. I'd hate to think we'd be wiped out of house and home! Add all the other toiletries and half your pay is going to bathroom things!

Anyway, I love when real life helps inspire a TG caption, which happens way more than I like to admit, but you really have to pay attention sometimes.

Love for any band from Boston is good enough for me. Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon do a great job covering Extreme .. which was so much better than that one song. Nuno Bettencourt is a friggin' God on guitar. Noah! Go Sawx!


  1. I have to say that I admire Lori. Making such sacrifices for the good of the home economy. I mean, someone has to step up. You know what they say? Ladies first! Ladies first!

  2. Somehow this reminds me of the time my sisters and me still lived at home.
    Great cap.
