Buy your toilet paper in bulk from online restaurant overstock suppliers. You can get 96 rolls of toilet paper for .67 a roll. Most are double ply, so if you turn one roll into two rolls, you can get 192 rolls of toilet paper for under $65!

Sometimes (especially for children), it's easy to use more toilet paper than you really need. Although I don't have kids, I've found I use a lot less toilet paper by keeping a bean bag (or something similar) laying on top of the toilet roll. The bean bag just needs to be lifted slightly when you pull off the sheets you need and it makes me conscious of what I'm doing!

I just wanted to share that I found a way to save on toilet paper. Just put a crimp in it so that it does not go round and round so easily. By having the crimp, it stops and allows you to use a smaller amount instead of the waste of what you don't really need.

When putting on a new roll of toilet paper, squeeze it first before you hang it. That way, it will not keep on rolling. Very helpful if you have small children.

How do you determine the best buy on toilet paper? This is driving me crazy!

I have had several people tell me the best buy is the Scott 1000 sheet rolls. However, I have visited where people use it and I don't like it.

I don't like the regular Scott. It is a great value, but it smears too much. If my family won't use it, not much of a buy!

Sign up at various brands' websites and you can get coupons sent to your email, or regular mails.

I usually get the doulbe roll Angel Soft, as it is avail most places I shop.

You also have to consider the type of paper it is. A person does use less of the high quality brands, so it might be wiser to buy better quality paper rather than the cheapest. I buy the largest packages I can get when it is on sale; I buy a good quality brand as I find it is nicer, and actually I use less.

It's really true that Scott 1000's are the most economical, especially when on sale. However, I've found *some* store brand 1000's that are just as good.

About Scott's.....The extra soft really is SOFT! I loved cottonelle (cursed with hemmroids after my second blessing) but tried it at my mom's and was impressed! You may have to surprise your family with it, it took awhile for DH to get used to it!

Use double coupons. Also, there is a good quality, good value brand called BASIC. I believe it's made by the same company that makes Bounty paper towels.

Don't forget to teach them to wash their hands very well after using the toilet. New mothers and others, after you change your babies, please wash your hands each and every time. You are spreading germs to anything you touch. Babies are cute but not sterile.

Absolutely right but you should also teach them to wash their hands BEFORE using the toilet in a plublic place or at home. In a house the place with more germs and bacteria is not the bathroom it is the kitchen.

Do your kids get mesmerized watching the toilet paper roll spin 'round and 'round, thereby using WAY more paper than they actually need? Next time, before you put the toilet paper roll on the spindle, "squoosh" it slightly between your hands. This will flatten the inner cardboard roll just enough to cause a little resistance as the roll turns -- resulting in fewer "avalanches" of TP!

Toilet Paper Tip

I'll have to remember that one, also ~ how about putting the roll up with the sheets facing towards the wall instead of towards the room - not so many sheets are "dispensed" this way round. (05/10/2004)
