How much TP do you go through in a week?

We go through a roll a day but my friend says that's way too much...that her family (same size as mine-5 people) go through 2 rolls a week. We both use normal sized rolls...not the really large ones.

  • Hmmm, lets see, its me, my husband, a 6 year old that I watch during the day (until 9:30 at night) and my son (who is 2) and we go through a roll a day. I don't think that is strange at all!

  • I depnds if im on my period and I work during the week, but sometimes I fell like we burn thru it. I like the large roll so I don't have to change it out as often. A small roll/ day for 5 people seems normal to me

  • A roll a day seems like a lot to me. We have 2 bathrooms. Family of 5...Me, Dh, 2 boys and a baby. I say about 1-2 rolls a week for us. But we also use wipes.

  • We go through a 1000 sheet roll a week. We are a family of 6 (almost 7) and one is still in diapers. However, me and my daughter use cloth wipes. I use cloth diapers/wipes/mama cloth so I found it natural to switch to them myself. The rest of our toilet users are male and don't use a lot of tp to begin with. There are some rolls that actually last us longer than a week. Toilet paper is the only disposable product I buy, I'm trying to get rid of it but hubs wont have it :)

  • Well we buy the "mega" rolls & only hubby & I use it. [Almost 3 year old uses wipes after he goes in the potty & our other son isn't potty trained yet.] Anyway, we go thru a big roll every 2-3 days. But I also pee literally every 30 minutes.

  • 1 double roll or 2 regular-size rolls per week. I don't use that much TP.
