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...
I can do that for future or some of the ones i already have, I think it does not have an impact on usage but good piece of info to have for certain.

After looking at the list i think most if not all are 2 ply i am not sure if there are any 1 or 3 ply in the list.

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

Good to see that even when the Costco Cascade is not on sale, it's still a good price.

Before our bidet installs, i did purchase the costco cascade which i immediately returned.
I found the cascade to be very rough, the kirkland brand is much softer - but not towel like.

nice, op made a record to follow.

Purex vs Cashmere does it have the same paper or something? I know they are both from the same company, but on the west side, walmart always Purex on sale.

it is jun 1 for Amazon sale, and Cottenelle Clean is 1 ply

For Cashmere, based on my experience, as long as you dont pay more the $3.99 for 12 rolls 253 sheets (6 double rolls), you get a decent deal. Similar for 24 rolls and 30 rolls.
Some 30 doubles are NOT 253 sheets tho...

Hi, hello. Your collective passion for toilet paper got our attention, so we created the RFD Toilet Paper Cost Calculator, a new tool which you can find under the Tools menu in the navigation bar.

After entering the TP details, it'll spit out a cost per square foot/square metre, cost per 1000 sheets and let you know how good of a value it is on a scale of one to four stars.

Feel free to test it, use it while shopping, tell your kids and leave any feedback/thoughts/suggestions in the comment section here - http://www.redflagdeals.com/latest-news ... /#comments
