What is a good deal on things like paper towels and toilet paper? I want to spend as little as possible of course, but at the same time I don't want a roll of paper towels that last less than a day or toilet paper that falls apart. What brands have you found that are cheap but still quality? What is considered "cheap" for toliet paper (how many cents per roll)?


Thanks so much!

Toilet paper is one of those areas where I'm slavish to the brand. We buy Charmin and wait for it to be $.17/roll or less and then stockpile like crazy (it requires a lot of waiting!). I've never really priced paper towels because we so very rarely use them.

I look for 25 cents or less on single roll TP before I buy. I am not brand fussy, but do like Northern best.


I try and use rags and not paper towels, do not stockpile them, because the more we have the more we use, esp. my kids, so I don't have a good price idea for them. I also tend to buy a roll or two at Aldi, and I keep them semi-concealed. Not sure why that waste bugs me so much!

hello!! unless the grocery store has a REALLY good sale going-i buy all my paper products at walmart or family dollar. usually i get 6 rolls of tp for 1.12 at walmart...and 3 rolls of paper towels for 1.67. this stuff isnt bounty or charmin or anything, but it gets the jobs done. if the stuff is on sale and i buy it, its usually something like 12 double rolls for 5.00. so 24 rolls of tp for 5.00-yeah-ill buy that. ive also gotten 8 rolls of paper towel for 6 or 7...you just have to keep an eye out for the really good deals-and if you cant find them-then i buy the cheap stuff at walmart or family dollar.

Hi, I have found a brand called Sofitelle. They have the tp at my local Dollar Tree and it's $1 for 4 rolls. We go through about 2 packs a weeks and no one can tell the difference between it and something way more expensive. I buy the same brand in paper towels at the grocery store for .67 a roll. I go through maybe one a week because I try to use rags and other towels.

Just so everyone knows, Dollar Tree products can usually be purchased from their website!
