dueling toilet paper

posted in Uncategorized |

When  I was growing up my parents were on a tight budget and one of the things that got economised was toilet paper. Of course we still used toilet paper, but it was just a less expensive brand than the fancy quilted kind :) I remember thinking to myself that when I grew up I’d buy the softer kind.

I’m grown up now. And I have occasionally bought the softer, more expensive kind, when it was on special and I felt like splashing out (yeah, I’ve just given you the secret to my happiness - expensive toilet paper). I have recently purchased eight rolls of the stuff and I’ve been paying close attention to how quickly we’ve been using it. And I’m questioning whether I’ve been ripped off. I do believe that there are actually less squares of toilet paper on a roll of the expensive kind than on a roll of the ordinary kind that I normally buy because we have gone through eight rolls in about two weeks! That’s not very long in this one woman, one girl child using the potty, house.

Today I had to buy more toilet paper and I’ve gone back to my economy selection. I’m sorely tempted to actually count the squares on a roll of each kind just to compare but I’m afraid this might border on the ‘going over the top on the search for frugality’ monitor. You tell me. If I do it, I’ll let you know the results.

    I do not know if I would count squares….I would not have tiem for that…I use Scott which when you account for the bigger rolls becomes the most cost effective and useful…There are some cheap toilet tissues that are not so useful. Scott isn’t pretty and quilted but it is better for the sewer and so far hasn’t hurt anyone’s bum!

    I think the counting squares thing is just some really weird part of me that wants to know the answer. I’m a collector of useless information :)

    Oh, how I remember economizing!! I had the same conversation with myself as a child. Before we had kids I bought the fancy stuff. For now (as in most everything I do) I buy the middle of the road - not the best, but not the worst. You don´t want to know how many rolls we go through here!!
