|In the bedroom closet.|
After staring at all the prices and number of sheets on toilet paper in the grocery store one day, I vowed that I would get to the bottom of this quandary, with toilet paper and the many other items that we all use.
It doesn't matter to me if it says double rolls, or anything like that. What matters is how many sheets are on the roll. Once you decide which brands you like, then do a comparison based on the number of sheets.

Most brands of toilet paper have 264 sheets per roll. One exception is Scott Extra Soft "Mega Rolls", which have 400 sheets. The Scott Extra Soft regular rolls have 264 sheets. But, you have to look at the fine print on the package to see how many sheets per roll your favorite toilet papers have.
I like Scott Extra Soft, Charmin Basic, Angel Soft and Cottonelle. I do not like the very thick brands. They seem to stop up.... the plumbing. I don't like the Scott 1000 sheet rolls, although they used to be the only one I bought. They are a great buy, but they are too thin to me, now that I have grown accustomed to the Extra Soft ones.
At any rate, here are the prices that I try to get on toilet paper. Some of these can only be achieved if I also have a coupon, but normally I do have coupons.
Any toilet paper that has 264 sheets per roll: The lowest price I've found is 33 cents per roll. But anywhere between 33 cents per roll and up to 41 cents per roll. Of course, 33 cents per roll prices equals STOCK UP TIME!
The Scott Extra Soft Mega Rolls with 400 sheets per roll: 50 cents per roll. These are often on sale for $6.99 per 12 pack and I usually have a $1.00 off coupon. If I see these on sale for less than $6.99 and I have coupons, this would equal STOCK UP TIME.
Just remember, you have to check to see how many sheets are on each roll of what ever toilet paper you are buying, whether or not it says "double rolls", etc.
I intend to out smart those manufacturers by sitting down with a calculator and a list of the prices, ounces and other sizes of items we buy regularly, and figuring out what my stock up price is.
Recently, before I became "enlightened" as to the details of toilet paper prices, I bought some Scott Extra Soft toilet paper and thought I had gotten them at a real steal. When I got home I realized they were the 264 sheet per roll size and not the mega rolls. I got fooled once, but not again!
I hope this will be helpful to you!
