How much does toilet paper cost?

On average, a package of toilet paper can cost as little as $1 to as much as $40 for a large bulk roll.  The prices depend on the brand, the number of plies, number of sheets per roll, square feet, the number of rolls, and packaging.

Living Rich With Coupons broke down the costs of toilet paper per square foot.  According to her research, a one-ply thin roll averages $0.0045 per square foot, whereas a two-ply thick roll will cost about $0.013 per square foot.

The best sellers on this Amazon list ranges anywhere from $22 for 36 rolls of Cottonelle Ultra ComfortCare to as little as $7 for 12 rolls of the Cottonelle Ultra ComfortCare.

At wholesale clubs, such as Costco, toilet paper often comes in 30 to 60-count packs, with prices ranging anywhere from as little as $16 for the Kirkland brand to as much as $27 for a pack of 60 Scott tube-free bath tissue.

How can I save money?

Get the best price on toilet paper by calculating the price per square foot per package instead of calculating the price per roll.  Find the price and then divide it by the total square feet figure on the package.  The answer will be the price of the toilet paper per square foot.  Compare it with other toilet paper products: the lower the figure, the better the deal.

Toilet paper companies almost always have coupons readily available online via social media or in local newspapers.  Consider looking for a few coupons before making your next purchase by either visiting popular coupon blogs or searching online.

Store-branded toilet paper can be just as good as the name brand and will cost up to 30 percent less.

The Krazy Coupon Lady says the Costco brand is always $0.01 per square foot, making it one of the best deals if you can’t find a coupon for a local store.

Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program can help you save up to 30 percent if you have more than five items delivered automatically.
