I can tell you my buy price, but it isn't the best...

1. I am a name brand mostly shopper. IE I will buy some non name brand, if I like it, but tend to buy name brand. Decided I don't mind Angel Soft, but can't stand the 1000 roll Walgreens things... so thin.

2. I base my price on single verses double rolls and get confused when the roll size isn't either, as one website I frequent bases her toilet paper price on a per square inch or something like that. Never sat down and done that much math yet.

Now for my buy prices... toilet paper I go for $.20 per single roll (or $.40 for double roll) but I get confused when it comes to a "big" roll or other sizes and haven't done all the math to compare. I am not a picky paper towel user as it is mostly for cat surprises and the occasional counter wipe down, etc. Don't need anything wonderfully durable, so I try and pay about $.50 per roll. Sometimes a bit more. Used to be Walgreens had a sale of $.50 per roll about once a month, but this time it was $.59 a roll, which I am going to try and not pay. Bought some sparkle awhile back at CVS after coupon and ECB, so set on that for awhile. Toilet paper, I never manage to stock pile much as I just don't get the coupons or see the deals often enough, so have considered raising my buy price a bit and would love to see what others have to say.

What is a good deal on toilet paper and paper towels. I know free is the best but what is a good sale price? Or How much would you pay for them? I want to start stockpile these but I don't want to over pay. I have coupons for these.
