Kmart shopper is being criticized for her innovative toilet paper hack – but do you see a problem?
- Mother Jamiee-Lee sparked discussion online about her toilet paper storage hack
- She posted a photo of a basket above the door in her bathroom on Facebook
- Many said it was genius, but others said it was unsanitary to expose the scrolls
A Kmart shopper has caused an uproar online after sharing a controversial toilet paper storage hack she adopted at home.
Jaimee-Lee bought an Over The Door Basket Organizer from the retail giant to store kitchen supplies before converting it into a toilet roll holder for the bathroom.
The mother shared her unique idea on Facebook, posting a photo of the device strapped over the back of the door with 30 rolls of toilet paper in the bins.
“I have this pantry shelf, it didn’t fit,” she wrote on the Kmart Hacks & Decor Facebook page.
Decided to put it behind the toilet door for spare sandwiches. The only problem is that the door won’t open all the way now.

‘In a large family someone always shouts toilet paper. With guys I hate everything on the floor next to the toilet! ‘
While many praised the trick, some were concerned that the scrolls were exposed – wondering if it was sanitary.
“I cringe at naked toilet paper rolls,” one person wrote.
“Some people don’t close the lid while flushing, and I’m just thinking about the poo / wee particles etc. that fly out and end up on the paper.
‘The toilet paper simply remains in the original packaging in the cupboard, less chance of it becoming so dirty.
Another added, “There are many more discreet and attractive ways to have toilet paper in the toilet.”
But others could not see the problem.
“My boys would still find a way to get over it all!” A mother was joking.
Several other Kmart fans asked why it was necessary for one family to have so many toilet paper rolls.

But dozens of moms sprang up to defend Jamiee-Lee, stating that every family’s needs are different.
“Some of you really need to educate yourself and think before you judge people,” said one mother.
“I buy a 48-roll pack and there is just me and my partner, but what you don’t see is that I have a bowel disease like many others, and you can never have enough toilet paper.”
“My four girls would use that in three days!” Another added.
‘I understand this so well! We are a family of seven and I buy a 32 pack every two weeks, ” wrote a third.
