Several years ago, I used to buy Aldi TP all the time. Then I did the math and discovered that square footage wise, it is not a bargain. Same with Angel Soft that costs about $1 and many store brands. They are cheap...but the rolls are small and don't last long. My personal favorite brand is Extra Soft Scott. Big rolls that last and there is usually a coupon that can be combined with a sale. But, lately I have been able to get Cottonelle free...so that is what we have been using. The rolls are small, but the price is right. ;)

Yep, Scott seems to be the best for the buck.

I guess it depends what you are comparing it to. I've been a Scott plain old 1000 sheets user for years, and only buy it on sale for 50 cents a roll. Aldi's has a 4-pack of 1000-sheets tp for $2.29. That's 57 cents a roll. A bit higher, but I want to have an alternative for when we need it, and Scott's isn't on sale. Or I don't want to use the extra gas to buy it on sale.

I just tried the Aldi one, and it was a tiny bit thinner paper. But it wasn't bad. I'll buy it again. 57 cents is a lot better than the Scott at $1 a roll full price.

Qtkitty, I'm with ya. I bought two flannel sheets at the Goodwill for $4 total. I'm going to cut them up and zigzag the edges. Vola, TP!

Best bang for the buck. Scott 1000 sheets.
:)

Warning... TMI

I prefer it to other brands that seem to break apart when I wipe and leave residuals!
