Most crappers had their own reading material.
Thanks to Sears Roebuck Company.
It wasn’t ‘till early 1830’s that perforated
paper was invented. It took until late
1875 for people to become
acquainted to something
different than corn cobs
or strips of cloth.
This subject was most difficult for
people to discuss with
By late 1880’s toilet paper [TP] fixtures were
selling in most general mercantile stores.
Mail order catalogues advertised
ten rolls of paper $.10 cents
Such a deal! $.01 cent/rolls.
How many $’s are
. . . flushing
“total square feet” of paper is what
U want to look for on pkgs.
that contain “bathroom
tissue” better known
as “crapp paper!”
Counting # of rolls is NOT the way to
figure the cost of square ft in the
package. Square feet are printed on
all packages. Single and double “ply”
is another factor that determines
cost per sq. ft. The
sample prices shown below use single ply rolls.
Two calculations below:
1) sq feet
2) sq foot cost
The 2012 pkg. has 208 sq. feet less
than the 2010 pkg. had!

5 pks x 4 rolls = 20 rolls = 1 large size bag

Overheard a Paper Co. Mgr. explaine
paper width reduced –1930’s,
only by 1/16” decrements.
2010 paper mfgrs. started using millimeters.
Which was hardly noticeable!
Next! will be centimeters.
Buyers — enter total square feet in packkage
cell phone or calculator –
Divide total sq. feet in package
by total $ pkg. cost
Divide total @ pkg. cost by number of rolls .
Result = roll cost
Create 100,000 (thousand) a month —
u ‘figgure’ it out!
The roll holders haven’t changed width in years!
Pricing per package/roll is VERY competitive
If you look close you’ll see differences in
length, width, square feet and
for each square
Pay no attention to printed pictures
on packaging — ducks, chickens
cows, dogs, sheep PLUS
TALL green trees
in forests, etc.
Might look pretty, however
NOT very functional
for what ur’ doin’.
Like leaves that fall off
trees and flutter
I got hooked on package graphics many years
ago and tried four different “6 roll paks.”
Beautiful graphics they were!
words claiming many comforts
“that’s for me” ! ! !
Cost = No Problem.

Graphics don’t do
