I don't bother with blotting sheets either - too small & too expensive.
Instead, I buy packs of facial tissue & keep one in my purse at all times. They do the job of gently absorbing excess oil without taking too much of my makeup off. If needed, I'll apply a light powder also, but that's only to replace rubbed off makeup. I don't apply powder unless I can blot first. It ruins my powder puff & makes me look cakey.
As for using the tissues....I tend to duck my face below the desk like I'm getting something out of my purse, and then I gently dab my face with a tissue. OR, when I have a moment I'll sneak off to the bathroom every now & then & blot my face in there. I'm increasingly shameless & tend to just look for moments when no one is watching me & blot below the desk - haha!

And I use cetaphil...because it doesn't dry out my skin and it's just to wash away the oil and I do it morning and night.

Hey doozy! I was my face twice a day with face wash. Right before work (7:00 am) and right before bed (10:00 pm). And when I get oily I blot...usually twice a day too. I use the clean and clear blotting sheets. I think it's like 50 sheets for 7 bucks at target..there are other kinds of blotting sheet, but I like using that. And when I'm out, it may sound weird, but I hear the toilet sheets that you sit on in the restroom works the same as blotting sheets too! So if you wanna save some money, you can use that. Only in a trusted environment of course. hope this helps!
the clean & clear ones are the best! but you can use anything (as long as its clean of course) i use tissues and face a wall in the classroom so it looks like im wiping my nose haha

Also get this, i had a stomach bug and couldnt eat too much food for around 3-4 days the only food i ate were crackers/sardines/brown rice and water, my skin changed dramatically instead of being oily it was DRY. So whatever you eat definitely has an effect on your skin. And make sure you wash with warm water dont use hot or cold

sometimes if i don't wash my face in the morning then it actually isn't as oily because my skin isn't overproducing to make up for the lack of oil. but i guess i shouldnt skip so much

Maybe hair needs sebum...
However, I do seem to be more oily when I wash more. Maybe washing removes skin that would cover up the oil?

I used to use them everyday, till i read the fine print. ELF has an oil free version, i switched to it and i noticed i stopped getting those little bump breakouts

Do you wash your face every couple hours (without soap)? Use wipes? Would like to know so I could do the same since I don't really do anything about it.
For a guy like you the answer is very simple. Look into a Makeup primer or mattifier. I have very oily skin and I am on the Regimen. I like to add the Murad Oil Control SPF 15 Mattifier at the end and it leaves me oil free for the whole day. It even works with makeup as a primer. Take a finger tip amount or smaller, Rub it in your finger tips and then dab it onto the skin, don't rub. Dab/pat it on your t-zone first then all over the face. It soaks all the bad stuff up and your matte for the day. I wash at 1am and 1 pm (because of work) and it lasts the whole time.
It's a little on the pricey side of things, but well worth it.
