How to Save Money on Toilet Paper
With 5 of us in our house we go through a lot of toilet paper and if I don’t make sure I get a great price on it I could end up spending a fortune on it. When I find a great deal on it I stock up a few months supply to get me till the next time I can catch a sale. But catching a sale and knowing when it is a good price can be a bit tricky.
Do you know that you can save money on toilet paper depending on the brand you buy as well as the type of roll? For those of you who are not in the know about toilet paper, there is the single roll, the double roll, and the mega roll.
A great way to calculate your savings is by considering the amount of sheets per roll. In order to do the price comparison, all you have to do is calculate the amount in a single roll, a double roll, and a mega roll. If grocery money is a little tight, get a small package of 300 1 ply sheets until your budget permits you to buy the 2 ply toilet paper when it goes on sale. Although the 2 ply sheets may seem to be a little more expensive, it really pays to buy the more expensive brand. If your house is anything like mine, the cheaper toilet paper roll is emptied faster than you can blink your eye because no one wants to get their hands dirty and for these reasons, tend to use a lot more toilet paper when they are doing their job.
Another disadvantage of the cheaper roll of toilet paper is the fact that people tend to use more, which can end up clogging up your toilet. A good rule of thumb is to teach those in your home to fold the toilet paper rather than scrunch it up when wiping. Adjusting the toilet paper roll so it will not spin as fast is also another way that can help to extend your toilet paper and help you to save some money.
Normally a single roll will contain 1000 sheets, a double roll will have 2000 sheets mega rolls are equal to 4 single rolls of toilet paper or 4000 sheets. You will be able to find out the cost of the toilet paper by dividing the total amount of sheets in the whole package from the amount of money it will cost you for it.
You can normally find really great deals on toilet paper on Amazon
