Don’t Buy Cheap Toilet Paper
The other day Mr. Money went to Costco to pick up some things for us. He bought eggs, dog food, organic butter, and toilet paper. When he was on his way home he gave me a call to tell me the total so I could update our check book register. He then proceeded to tell me how he saved us money on toilet paper because he bought a cheaper brand. I hesitated for a minute, but let him finish on all the good things that the toilet paper boasted:
-Paper individual wrapper (versus the Kirkland brand that has plastic wrap around each roll apparently)
-Cheaper per square foot
-More toilet paper in each individual roll
I decided that if he was that proud of himself for saving money and figuring out the cost per square foot, then who was I to criticize him? I told myself I would give it a try. Surely it wouldn’t be as bad as I thought it would be.
I started a new roll the other day and had convinced myself that I had separated the two ply and was only on the one ply. Turns out, it IS one ply! I had to take off at least twice as much as I normally do and fold it in half, then fold it in half again to get it to the right amount.
Let’s just say it still didn’t work very well. I was not amused.
I hope next time we need toilet paper I’m buying it, or Mr. Money chooses the Kirkland brand. I’ve never had a bad experience with it.
What’s something you just don’t skimp on?
