    Bog Rolls! 9th Jan 17 at 9:33 PM
    I'm trying to sort out a good price for bog rolls. My brain has seized Between Costco and Amazon and supermarkets - is there any one that's a great price and good value?

    I always used to load up on the branded loo roll from Costco because it was so much cheaper but just before Christmas we suddenly ran out when we had loads of friends and family to stay so we gave the Costco own brand, Kirkland Triple Satin, a punt and we really love it. It's thick, soft and more durable than the Andrex or Cushelle they usually have on offer. It comes in 12x4 packs so 48 rolls with 260 sheets each for £15.34 inc vat so for us it's a great but because it lasts and is great value. We love it and will keep on using it. We're going to give their kitchen paper a try too now.

    A chap in front of me at the local B&M (11am) bought a whole trolley load of toilet rolls. Couldn't get the brand but wonder if there is a bargain going.

    In a hurry to catch the bus, didn't notice the brand. But others in the queue went back to have a look.

    Could be Gentle Touch £2.99 per 18.

Yes this stuff has a nice feel but since switching to a less cushy brand I've not had this issue happen.

    Cusheen from Groupon 60 rolls £11.99 +£1.99 delivery
    Just spotted this offer, which seems like a good price to me, (working out to just over 23p a roll) for a 3 ply "luxury" type roll, but I've never tried this particular brand. Can anyone recommend?

    Edited to add the quantity *doh*

    where can i get good quality toilet paper at a reasonable price?
    i usually get cushelle or velvet in 12-16 packs. i have tried some of sainsburys and asda own brand paper and it's nowhere near as good. where would you say are the best stores to buy good quality toilet paper for a good price?

    If you want to cut your costs you should consider buying toilet paper in bulk. You should try different brands until you find one that has a quality that suits you well. Unfortunately the own brand paper can sometimes be of low quality, so just keep up the work of finding the right one. On Amazon there should be different bulk suppliers once you have found a brand that works for you. Good luck.

    You could try Waitrose Essential toilet roll. Not cheap and thin as you would expect. Definitely thicker than the thin stuff Sainsburys does. Also alot softer than you think when compared with other supermarkets cheap paper t rolls.

    At the momment there is a good deal going on until 11th July.

    Normal price per pack £3.75 of 9 rolls, 240 sheets, total area 27.6 mtrs.

    Offer at the mo is 2 packs for £6. But if you have thier myWaitrose card you can get another 20% of the original £3.75 price, so another £1.50.

    So you get £7.50 worth of T rolls for £4.50, basically £2.25 a pack.

    Give them a try you will be surprised.

    Ps. The Nicky brigade will be around soon. Not really worth the extra you have to pay for them. Basically it's a kitchen roll cut in 2.

    Soz "Nicky Brigade" - £3.95 for 18 decent thick 3ply rolls in B&M, Home Bargains, Savers etc. Good for me.

    Lidl Cushelle offer now and again is around £7.99 for a 24 pack. You need to watch out for. Or At the moment Superdrug has Velvet for £3 for 9 not bad.
    PK!
