    To those who mock using the phone book… re; paper cuts, roughness, absorbancy etc., You have to take a page…crush it…reopen it….crush it again…reopen…and repeat over and over again. FINALLY it will become very pliable, soft and absorbant LIKE toilet paper. I don't know how I know these things. I'm good at Trivia Pursuit too.Good vid. Thanks pal.

    Save plastic bags from store runs, line bucket with one, fill with litter. Easy to tie it up and overall clean up.

    In a situation when water stops running, first thing you want to do is shut the water to your toilet off. May get back up from neighbors, yuck. Then ask yourself, if there is no water and won't be for a long time do I really want to waste good drinking water on flushing a toilet that is essentially useless now?? Kitty litter is good to keep. The phone book not so much. Might want to rethink that one, lol.

    I noticed that the page you removed from the Yellow Pages was from the section listing 'Attorneys'. How appropriate!

    Couldn't you end up getting a paper cut. Cause just saying that would suck, getting a paper cut right there then having toWalhalla around worth a paper cut on your bum.
    Not likely but still possible.

    It's apparent that you haven't actually USED the phone books as toilet paper.  Not a good choice. They are not absorbent and just don't do the job.  Lime will also take away the smell.

    I watched your vid and went to my aunts place who has cats. I then saw she had kitty litter out, so I pooped in it – she got really angry – she didn't understand your video.

    Got elderly parents who use the porto johnny's in their house. They used to use straight "Ocean pine" pine oil then started using the camper stuff. A little splash of that goes a long way.

    Human waste causes disease. You better have a plan to deal with the bags of poop. 3' snow on ground, now what? Instead of cat litter use camping toilet liquid, covers the smell, only need a little in the 5 gal. potty. Buy a plastic, wheeled, 40gal w/ lid garbage can and put your poop bags in it until you can deal with properly (burn, bury, dump away from water supplies). If you can pee in a separate container, pee stinks, don't mix with poop. Pee used as fertilizer, not poop. Buy kitchen bags.

    In north Alabama until the 1950s, my redneck relatives used the bushes around the house. A pack of what they called "commode dogs" went around looking for dump to eat under the bushes of houses. A commode dog was good. It would not only gobble up your dumb but give you a good crack licking, too. And it FELT good! Only, you didn't want to pet or kiss these dogs or let them lick your face. They were commode dogs. Niggers weren't allowed to have bushes, so they invented TP & "de indoe bukit:.

    The water thing to flush the toilet is kind of dumb actually…..if you are in a situation where there is no running water well you are going to want to drink that water more than flush your toilet with it.

    An embarrassing topic many won't touch, that's for sure. In ancient Rome they used a sponge on the end of a stick. Many died from poor sanitary conditions, but if kept sterile the sponge stick is the gift that keeps on giving.

    TP storage is compact if you remove the cardboard core and vacuum seal them. I started with the 11 inch rolls of vac bags, but found that 2 rolls per bag was the optimum. I found the "space bags" meant for blankets worked great, and I can put 10-12 rolls in each one. They vacuum down to about 3 inches, and stack beautifully.

    As a cat owner, I fully appreciate the virtues of a quality cat litter! I got the 5 gal. bucket with the seat for bug-out, but since I plan to shelter in place as long as possible, the thought of moving the bucket into the bathroom didn't make sense. If the water is off, drain the toilet, line with a garden trash bag, and lay down the litter. MUCH more comfortable than perching over a bucket! I'm guessing the toilet will have about the same capacity as a bucket, too.

    Peat moss, Stall Shavings, Saw dust works great too. We used the Cat litter in the horse trailer on Trail rides. You can use a milk crate or a 5 gal bucket, put a toilet seat on them, line the crate or bucket with a trash bag and you have it.

    Very good video. This is a topic most folks don't even consider until they have to, then it's too late.
