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.

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!

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

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.
Ok, this may sound kinda weird but, what do you do to save on toilet paper? What is the best buy on it and how do you avoid overusing it? TIA

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.

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!
