    Default Toilet Paper

    My husband and I are both teachers so we are home most days during the summer. I have come to a startling realization: we use a TON of toilet paper in the summer! I never noticed how much we saved by using the bathroom at work. Do you all have any suggestions to save on this necessity?

    I just try to get it on sale and if possible combine with a coupon. I buy generic if I can't get a better deal otherwise. I really don't care what brand it is, it's getting flushed after all!

    Get it on sale and stock up when it is. Gets worse when you have kids home from school.

    If you are buying brand name, experiment with the generic varieties.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    I find the same thing since I'm home in the summer.Company can go through lots of paer too! I always buy on sale. I don't use a lot of different brands because we have a septic system.

    I agree, I buy Scott's when it is on sale and with Coupons. Some of the others just have nothing on the roll!

    Pretty much what the others have said........

    I have found that the coupons I see are not always such a good deal. Check not only the number of squares on the roll but the sq. ft. they give.........I buy whatever will give me to most bang for the buck! BUT........it HAS to be two ply!

    Scott all the way!

    Kmart always has good deals on Scott and their American Flair version ain't so bad either. I've tried the dollar store version of Scott and it's okay too.

    I use Scott's too...The one ply is best for septic and they are wound tight - there's just more on the roll.

    I buy Scotts also. One thing I noticed is my family uses to much per time. I have had to unstop the toliets more than once because of it. I have talked to them about it and they are doing better. So that might be something to look into. How much are you using? Do you really need to use that much? Other than that I really don't know. I rewatched Frontier House the other night and they had to use rags and wash them out in a bucket. It does make me so thankful for TP.

    I buy what is on sale and watch on how many sheets are on each roll. Another thing that I do and it makes a difference is I squeeze the roll before I put it on the roller. Then when the family pulls on it the tolite paper does not unroll alot then they use less.
