Want to conserve on TP - then why not washable rags? Cheep washcloths can be found at discount stores and garage sales, cut up into one-use sizes and washed/reused.
These can be misted with a spray bottle for a wet-wipe functionality.
The wash water can then be applied to ones compost or trees if proper natural soap is used.

Cody Lundin, survivalist from Flagstaff, AZ, talks about using snow in the winter to wipe oneself. He also says using snow to wipe oneself wakes one up real quick.
On a serious note, in most weather you really don't even think about the chill factor. Unless it's extremely cold (below zero), snow isn't too bad at all.

OK, I'll ask the obvious question - why is it that only humans need to wipe? I have never seen an animal attempt to wipe itself (dogs with anal gland issues excluded). But then again many animals lick themselves clean.
