It's always seemed to me that roll sizes are getting smaller at the same time that prices are rising, but today I proved it. I bought mega roll packages equivalent to 48 "normal" rolls. As I was stashing the new packages, I noticed an older package that was also equivalent to 48 "normal" rolls. The difference is almost 9% in length. Can you see it?
A couple weeks ago, Target had a decent sale on TP and some of the packages included coupons. I chose those packages. This week there was another sale. I bought TP and paper towels on sale. The sale gave me $5 gift cards for every two packages. I used the coupons to get an extra $1 off each package and a free tub of Charmin wipes (normally $2.49) with each package of TP. And my Target card gave me an extra 5% discount. That was fun. :-)
Just in case you're as excited by a good stash as I am, here are some pictures. I don't need to buy any TP for awhile. I won't need paper towels for another 10 years or so, at the rate we use them.
