Good TP prices

Thank you to all of you who weighed in with your thoughts on the best deals on toilet paper. I did like the link Cara posted to this blog here. I encourage all of you to read it as well.

After reading that post I discovered that maybe my $5 12 double roll pack of toilet paper at only 450 sq. ft. wasn't really that great of a deal:(

My new mission is to find the best toilet paper deal possible... or at least get it for only .01 a sq. ft. :) I'll be sure to let you all know when I find a good deal! If you have already found toilet paper for only .01 a sq. ft. let us know where!

Lets talk TP

Okay so I don't know about most of you but my family just used up our LAST ROLL of FREE toilet paper we were able to stock up on this past year because of the awesome Cottonelle/Dillons deals!!!!

I have been scouting out good toilet paper deals because it looks like we are going to have to start paying for it:( The best deal I found so far was at CVS about a month ago. They had their brand of TP on sale for $5.00 for 12 double rolls.

What great TP deals have you found? Please feel free to comment with insight and suggestions as to what a good price would be to pay for TP!
