A number of friends have done the seat route. One issue is that if you want heated water, you need electrical close enough to plug in (or a hot water line, even more problematic in most cases). So, for our bathrooms that means some fairly extensive work to get a receptacle where needed. And, good ones are not cheap.

This is the one that my friends have settled on: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B018F18TIK

Whoa. That's not a small number. Hope you're prepped.

Bidets as a way to address a TP shortage are ok, I guess. There's certainly an argument to be made from a cleanliness aspect.

But if you lose your water supply the bidet is offline. You should probably still have some TP for the plastic bucket / trench latrine / etc. you'll now be using.

There are alternatives. Some were used before modern toilet paper made an appearance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVTRpTHPs3o

Advertisment flyers are still delivered in abundance where I live and only few of them are printed on glossy paper.

wiping your behind more than a couple times with advertisements and you'll end up sore. I have to go often and I can tell a difference between brands of TP even.

I'll try to put this in a way that's acceptable in mixed-company. I'm a practical person, especially when it comes to intimate apparel. Today I was having trouble getting the intimate apparel I usually buy. I'll try again, but I will have to go with something different if I can't find what I typically wear.

Something I've always said for preps, when you buy your intimate apparel buy extra and keep those extra in a suitcase ready to go. This give you
1. extra to get through a shortage or tight budget due to job layoff or another circumstance
2. Evac time saves, NOLA type, or forset fire, etc where the authorities tell you to evac (or you decide to evac on your own) you don't have to worry about your laundry being caught up or finding and packing as much.

Most people buy their underwear and socks and such in packs (3,6, whatever). Buy an extra pack of each and store in your suitcase in case of evacuation. Then each time you buy new you put the new in the suitcase and take out what was in there, i.e. rotate stock.

I've bought extra intimate apparel, as you have said. However, what I wear now is wearing out faster than I had anticipated. Therefore I'm concerned that the extra I have is not enough.
