Ok… I’m getting a little extra now with all of the new decorations for my bedroom, right?

I actually looked at a few different stores (in person) and no one seemed to sell tissue box covers. It must be one of those things millennials killed :p AKA… something that just isn’t relevant anymore, since so many tissue companies are printing cute boxes anyways.
