Hi. My name is Susan, and I love tissue.
Usually Kleenex brand, to be specific. I have a box in every room of my house. Yeah, I admit it! I have a thing about tissue.
Growing up, my parents rationed tissues as if they were made of dollar bills. I had to use every square inch of one before I was allowed the luxury of a second. It was the 1970’s, after all.But now, I joyously use just once, toss into the trash, and snatch another.Scandalous, I know.
So you can only imagine my joy upon seeing this gorgeous, SCRAPALICIOUS box of tissues at Target a couple of weeks ago.
Those swirls could have been stamped by Autumn Leaves! Those colors could have been from My Mind’s Eye!
I was in love, but wary. What if it was just a beautiful box with scratchy, utilitarian tissues inside? Was the beauty of the box worth a possibly raw nose? Yes, I determined. Yes, it was a risk I was willing to take!
You’ll be relieved to find out that the tissue quality is just fine.
More importantly, that box of Target tissue sits on my kitchen counter and makes me happy every time I look at it. Seriously. I’ve even started to hoard them since I only bought one box! And what if they are (gasp!) gone when I go back for more? No! I cannot repeat the cycle! I’d better head to Target right now. I need to buy a few backup boxes 🙂
