Toilet paper math can be confusing. Luckily some number crunchers have done the hard work for us, and figured out it’s actually a few bucks cheaper if you buy your bulk toilet paper elsewhere. “But what about Kirkland Brand?”, many would protest. Well it is pretty cheap, but it’s very much a case of you get what you pay for, as it’s one of the lowest quality products available. One could say that only gas station toilet paper is worse, but in some gas stations it’s Kirkland you’ll find. If you need to use a lot more to get the same protection you aren’t actually saving money. But if you’re someone that is only comfortable wiping with a wad so thick it’ll clog the toilet if you use name brand, maybe it’s the right choice for you.
