Where can you buy tissue paper if you don’t have any:
You can buy them in almost any store. Jack’s, which I’ve frequented in Manhattan, NY have a huge selection of color tissue papers.
You can get them from the dollar store or the gift sections of Target, grocery stores, convenience stores like Rite Aid, Walgreen, etc.
Of course, you can always get them from one of my favorite online store, Amazon.
