People are always curious how to determine the best price for paper products, like toilet tissue.
Here’s how we figure out a stock up price:
First we break down a package into the number of single rolls.
Costco’s Price for 30 rolls (we calculate these at 2.5x a roll =75 single rolls) = $15.69 = $.20 per roll.
Cashmere 12/24 rolls we can get for $2.99 with $1 coupon = $1.99= $.08 per roll
Royale Velour 12/24 rolls we can get for $3.99 with $2 coupon = $.08 per roll.
Many people think it’s cheaper to buy Costco brand, and we understand it is easier to grab a huge bulk package than going through the process of couponing and trying to save money. But, it’s still cheaper to coupon than it is to buy Costco brand. and even better if you can combine three discounts to achieve a great price, for example, a sale price, a coupon, and cashback or a points offer to sweeten the deal.
Our stock up price for toilet tissue is between 5 and 10 cents per roll. $.12 is still good, but if you have coupons, then you can usually get a good deal on toilet paper and stock up when the price drops and your coupons work for the deal.
That’s when you buy several packages and stock up.
We always break down the price and quantity to see what the difference is.
It’s easier to go by rolls and compare than calculating sheets of paper or anything else.
