Oddly enough, I had the same experience with my DH just recently. He was going to stop by the store on his way home from work and TP was on the list. He done the same thing, brought home some cheap store brand TP when

Been there , done that....

Here is how it is at our house......

I grew up using Northern and or Charmin....we used to pay .29 for 4 rolls and then it went on sale sometimes....somewhere in the years from the 60s to the 90s the price went to almost $4 for those same 4 rolls....something has to be done..... And we were going through it very fast.....

One day I saw some Scott 1000 sheet rolls...I bought 1 roll it was .99 it lasted days... and even thought it was thinner we were using a little less don't aske me why....

We have been using Scott since..... then the other day we went to see DMIL when we left Del said that toilet paper was like using a sponge to wipe with.....he hated it......so there you go you can teach an old dog new tricks because she uses Charmin which she has used since I have known her.

We used Cotonelle for years, because originally it did contain cotton.
