Toilet paper deals haven’t been super plentiful lately, and with all the different size rolls it is hard to know if you’re really getting a good deal. So, I did some research to find just how to tell if you are getting a good deal on toilet paper.
Here’s how easy it is:
Look at the front bottom of the toilet paper package and find the total square feet. Now insert a decimal point in this number two places to the left. If the cost of the package minus coupons is less than or equal to this figure, it’s a decent deal — basically $0.01 or less per square foot!
For the package pictured above, the total square feet is 117.3.
Moving the decimal point to the left 2 places gives you the price of $1.17 (you can ignore the 3). That means it is 1¢ per square foot, the best price around!
So, after coupons are applied you should pay no more than $1.17 for this package of toilet paper. When you see it on sale at that price, it’s time to stock up!
Toilet Paper “A” = 400 sq. ft. Let’s say this package is priced at $6 in your store.
But, the “trick” stock-up price means we would only want to pay $4 (400 sq. ft. then move the decimal to the left 2 places),
so at $6, it is not a fabulous deal. Buy only what will get you through until you can stock up at a better price.
Toilet Paper “B” = 650 sq. ft. Let’s say this package is priced at $5 in your store.
The Stock-up price would be $6.50 (650 sq.ft. then move the decimal to the left 2 places),
so it’s definitely a bargain! Buy several of these and stock up for 6-8 weeks!
Did you know that Amazon often offers deals on Toilet Paper at Stock Up Prices just like this? I’ve started buying all my paper products from them. We alert you with a post when we see that it dips to the Stock Up Price!
