Toilet Tissue Comparisons

The quality of toilet tissue varies a lot so it's difficult to compare. Then you have to make sure you're comparing single sheets with double sheets (I only looked at the double sheets). But as it's an item we constantly use, it's worth taking a look at cost.

The best way to compare is to pick some of your favorites (none of us want to use stiff, uncomfortable sheets). Note price, multiply the number of sheets with the number of rolls (some may vary in width but I wasn't overly concerned with that so ignore the square feet shown on the package). Divide the price with the total number of sheets in the package.

I found that the cheapest (and not too bad to use) packages were at the 99c Only Store. Although Charmin is a much better product it didn't seem worth the additional cost.
