Once money starting getting tight, I quickly realized that there were sacrifices that had to be made. All of a sudden, the $3 I could save from buying store brand toilet paper instead of Charmin Plus Ultra Soft and Thick 5-Ply (okay, getting a tad dramatic there, but you get the idea!) was appealing enough to make the sacrifice. Many times, the variety of generic toilet paper I have tried - and variety because I get whatever happens to be the best deal - has been okay. However, I recently learned that while you can go cheaper, cheapest will leave you with a raw bum. I made the mistake of buying a 1-ply (ugh, and why did I have to get the 12-pack!!) toilet paper that feels like a combination between tissue paper and fine-grit sandpaper. TP should NOT sound crinkly!
Here is the culprit! The packaging is very deceiving. As you can see, it says "soft and strong." That would be a definite NO, and NO! That poor little dog on the package. This stuff would probably give the thing bald spots on his little hiney!
I can't fathom wasting this stuff by throwing it away, so we are grinning and bearing through it (only 9 more rolls to go!). Should I mention that we have guests this weekend? I guess it is better than nothing, slightly better...
I have seriously considered writing this company a letter about false advertising, but is it really worth my time? Even if they sent me a coupon, etc., I can't imagine putting my family's privates through any more torture.
