This week a few of you asked on our facebook page for help figuring out toilet paper deals and savings.
There are some tricky parts to figuring out saving on bath tissue aka toilet paper. First there are so many different size rolls and packages. Double, Mega, Big, how do you make it so that you are comparing apples to apples?? The number of sheets will vary even inside a brand between soft and strong types, so it is best to look at the square feet per package rather than sheets. For the average couponer though it’s tough to spend 3 hours staring at the toilet paper trying to figure out which package is best…
For me, I follow a two rules and then look for deals accordingly:
We are very brand loyal with toilet paper, so it must be Charmin or Cottonelle.
Mega rolls don’t fit in our toilet paper holders… so we always go with double rolls.
Now pull all the deals from the item search for “bath tissue” that is what all the grocery stores call it, so that’s what I call it in lists. Because I’m brand loyal I’ll even put “Charmin Bath Tissue” in the search so that I’m only looking for what I want. For today though, here’s a look at every Bath Tissue deal this week. I put a next to the top deals when you look at price per roll. In general you’ll see that most of them correspond to deals that were $5 or less per pack of 12 double rolls. With some brands being cheaper than others.
Long story short, look for the best deals to be deals that give you something back. Like the Kmart or CVS $10 back when you buy $30 type deals. Stock up on paper goods those weeks and take advantage of the extra savings!! Rarely do we purchase paper goods in a grocery store because of these deals.
