A few days ago my boss told me we were running low on the commercial hand soap I’d found at American Discount Foods the last time I shopped there so Mr. A and I decided to stop by and see if they had any.
To tell you the truth, I’m a little disappointed in their prices. You do have to shop carefully, and know your typical sale prices; otherwise you will end up paying for dented goods when you could get them at a regular grocery store on sale. Since we were actually out of grocery money that week, we didn’t look too hard for food, but we did find these giant rolls of toilet paper, $15 for a case of eight. Since I probably won’t be able to convince my family to try family cloth any time soon, we decided to see if we could stand using these big rolls of toilet paper.
We usually buy ScotTissue, the cheapest I have seen it on sale lately is $5.99 for a twelve pack, which makes it fifty cents a roll. Mr. A says the regular price is one dollar a roll.
I’ve put together another comparison, this time based on square footage. My first toilet paper comparison was based on sheets rather than square footage.
ScotTissue on sale comes out to $4.34 per 1000 square feet.
ScotTissue at regular price comes to $8.68 per 1000 square feet.
The big discount rolls are clearly the best buy, at $3.22 per 1000 square feet.
I guess Mr. A needs to fashion us a holder of some kind.
I guess I’ll hide some regular rolls somewhere for when company comes over. 🙂
