Do you think someone in your household uses too much toilet paper? Find out now!
In a poll conducted on a convenience item taken advantage of the most, toilet paper outranked any other item by a whopping 69%! Aside from its originally intended used, toilet paper is a commonly consumed item for other reasons in the household, including:
The facts concerning the amount of toilet paper used on average by a person each year are:
As an individual, if you go through a regular roll faster than 3-4 days (or double roll every 6-7 days), then you use more toilet paper than the average person!
When using toilet paper, do you wad it up, wrap it around your hand, or fold it up? Studies show that most women are wadders and most men are folders!
A study conducted yearly on the use of paper products per person in the United States reported that the annual cost of toilet paper, paper towels, and napkins per person in 2016 was approximately $120. Considering the fluctuating market, sales, and different size rolls entering and leaving the market, it is hard to get an accurate cost per year.
Should you choose single roll or double roll? How about 1-ply or 2-ply? Figuring out the best bang for your buck can be challenging, especially since there is no true standard to roll sizes.
Single rolls usually fall around 150 sheets per roll. However, double rolls have been known to range from 176-352 sheets per roll.
There is no easier way to figure out if you are getting the best deal on your toilet paper purchase other than doing the math. The equation for figuring out the actual cost of one pack versus another is to figure out the cost per sheet.
If you find you are going through toilet paper in your home too fast, chances are you are using way more than necessary during your bathroom time. Avoid using too much toilet paper and save money and avert potential plumbing issues.
