    Everybody needs toilet paper, but not everyone knows how to get the best deal on it.
    There are several factors to consider:

    1.) Quality
    2.) Quantity
    3.) Price

    I guess number of ply could be another consideration, but I think the majority use 2-ply, so that'll be the basis here.

    The first thing to consider when buying toilet paper is the quality. Do you like the ultra-premium super thick and absorbent paper like Charmin, or is the standard stuff like Royale adequate? Or is the cheapest of the cheap just fine for you? Obviously the better quality paper will cost a little bit more, so you'll need to take that into consideration.

    The second thing to consider is quantity. The determining factor here is NOT the number of rolls you get in the package. It is the number of sheets you get per roll. It's not sufficient to just see that it's a "single roll" or a "double roll" because there is no set standard. Some single rolls are 100 sheets, some are 150 sheets, and some are 176 sheets. So for some brands, their double roll is only 200 sheets, which is almost the same as another brand's single roll!

    And of course, the thing that most people pay attention to is price. What you should do determining the value of any toilet paper deal is to find out the number of sheets you get per dollar using the following formula:

    (Number Rolls x Sheets Per Roll) / Price

    Quick rough reference guide:

    Premium toilet paper:
    <400 sheets/dollar - Regular Price
    ~400 sheets/dollar - Regular Sale Price
    ~600 sheets/dollar - Good Sale Price
    ~800 sheets/dollar - Excellent Sale Price
    >800 sheets/dollar - Incredible Sale Price

    Standard toilet paper:
    <600 sheets/dollar - Regular Price
    ~600 sheets/dollar - Regular Sale Price
    ~800 sheets/dollar - Good Sale Price
    ~1000 sheets/dollar - Excellent Sale Price
    >1000 sheets/dollar - Incredible Sale Price

    I would like to add that quality is also a relative factor.

    Toilet paper quality is usually measured based on three important features:

    - Color (the whiter tones are usually perceived as better quality)
    - Softness (the softer textures are perceived as better)
    - Strengh (nobody likes paper that breaks into pieces).
