Btw if you wanna share spreadsheet data, use a spreadsheet. Tried Google Sheets yet?
I tried Google Sheets it didn't work to well, not very very soft and it left sh*t all over my tablet screen :-)

I'd stick with kirklands!

I haven't read the thread yet but the simple fact that you made it is reason to applaud you. :-)

Are those all sale prices (other than costco of course)?
[edit] nevermind i just looked up some toilet paper prices and yes those do seem to all be sale prices.

I am waiting for some more data and ill add it on the first post. If you have any data i will need brand, store, price, # of rolls, sheets per roll, size of sheets to calculate it.

thanks

Truly impressive.

How the Holy Hell did you amass all these lines?

Admittedly this will help, but need clarity. What is the price? Promo price I guess? Can you make a column to indicate sale price?

Interesting to see there's a 300% variance in pricing. That's substantial.

I like the feel of kirkland. Based on your data, unless there is some super amazing sale on cashmere that even you haven't' managed to record, i should just keep buying it and know i'm getting nearly the best price out there :-) thanks.

What will make this thread relevant is when someone uses this information to post when a real deal comes along. Just knowing there was a deal, say, in July 2016, isn't saving any money in our pockets.

To say my comment on TP. :)

Used to buy whatever was on sale then switched to kirkland from Costco 2 years ago when I noticed it was actually a good deal (even if not on sale).

But for the last 2 years we have been having issues with our septic (random issues not that alarming to call a plumber). It's like the water wasn't draining as fast in our septic. We just thought it was because it was old but the last time it was blocked (not fun to clean on christmas eve) I decided to stop using the Kirkland just for the heck of it.

We switched from Kirkland to Majesta EZ Flush. We don't mind the EZ Flush at all and it's on sales regularly everywhere. It's actually not as cheap as the kirkland but if it's going to save us trouble I stopped using the kirkland brand.

Since about a week after the last incident in our basement (It's not that bad but still) we had 0 issues. Kirkland says it's septic safe but after doing the test in water (1 sheet in a bowl with water) the kirkland stuck to my finger like glue so I figured it was just causing a jam so water wouldn't run properply.

anyway.. just my comment on TP :)

Great thread BTW. I always like to calculate the sheet / roll / $$$ (My wife thinks I'm crazy when I pull up the calculator on my phone) haha.

All these prices are sale prices... i calculate all grocery items per gm or volume so toilet paper was no different. Everytime there is a sale i record it in as long as its less than what i have, especially add it in if there is a thread here. All sale prices except kirkland as its just regular, i have not seen it on sale yet.

Cashmere seems to be very expensive, like i said all these prices are sale prices and date i entered them into my calculation.

Interesting information, i think kirkland uses one of the major brands to make their TP they may not be 100% equivalent to their quality but they are pretty good.

Women are tossing baby wipes in the toilet as well they dont decompose well at all!

thanks for all the encouragement, it will fun to see how inflation changes this over time!

my mom hates cashmere brand. The ones that are individually wrapped. They may have the most sheets but they have thinner sheets than royale and I end up using more sheets per toilet visit, so it ends about the same.

It wouldn't hurt to have information about the 'ply-ness' of the listed papers in the above table. E.g. 1-ply, 2-ply, 3-ply...
