    Nicky is the best value in my opinion. It's very strong. I used to buy the larger size Andrex rolls as I find they lasted ages - only on offer though! Can't find them anywhere now though, so it's back to Nicky.

    I just knew you'd get the 'cloths' answer taxsaver, I just can't believe anyone actually does that. The rationing suggestion takes me back to when you had a ask for paper at school.

    I agree with the flattening the roll idea, especially if you've got children in the house.

    Best value (if you must buy any;)) IMO is Nicky brand from Farmfoods. It's 9 rolls per pack, 2 packs for £4. Soft, strong, quilted.....what more could you ask for? And I'm speaking as an Andrex convert:D

    Thank you to all that answered. I'll try flattening the roll to see if that slows down my OH! Especially thank you to jackieb and maman - that's very helpful as we use Andrex mostly! I shall be making my first ever visit to Farmfoods next week. :)

    I think I'll pass on the cloths idea though, although...... I seem to have rather more handkerchiefs than I will ever be able to use! hmmmmm :rotfl:
    If you feel my comments are helpful then I'd love it if you 'Thanked' me! :)

    Well somebody has to ask!

    Is there an OS way of saving on the cost of toilet rolls?

    We don't like the really cheap and thin papers and no, I don't want to use old newspaper!!

    So is there a way to save on the amount of this being used, not just from a financial viewpoint but also from an eco one.

    I think I can safely admit this now as twas in the 80s, we used to "nick" them from campus :embarasse

    Home Bargains also sell the Nicky brand. £2 for 9 or £3.99 for an 18 pack.

    I use baby wet wipes (like huggies or whatever) I find these cheap as you only use one.

    I don't actually use family cloths, but these sort of comments always puzzle me - how is using cloths for adults really any different than using cloth nappies for babies ? There'd be rather less waste to deal with, actually. And then it all goes into the washing machine anyway.... Or you could just use them for wees, and keep a stock of loo roll for poos and any visitors ;)

    I didn't say I used them! However its no different from washable nappies and wipes - which I did use.

    Value baby wipes in our house though in the last 6 months they've gone up from 18p to 49p :eek: so I'm not sure if it is (or ever has been) more economical but I can't stand the idea of wiping my butt with a piece of paper. Seriously, if you got poo on your hand (changing a nappy for example) would you wipe it with a bit of dry tissue and think it was clean??!
    Make £25 a day in April £0/£750 (March £584, February £602, January £883.66)
