How Many Rolls Of Toilet Paper Do You Use Every Week?

how-much-toilet-paper

Don’t laugh! Toilet paper is an essential preparedness item, yes? While so many of us who are preparedness-conscious will procure all sorts of extra food for our food storage, how many have figured out how much toilet paper they might go through in a week – and then store ahead say, 3 months or one year? Have you stored TP?

UPDATE: The exciting poll results are in! Now we finally know the answer to how many rolls of toilet paper that people use each week, and here are the results:

 
Okay, maybe it’s not terribly exciting ๐Ÿ˜‰

Most people use between one and two rolls of TP each week.

So if you wanted to store ahead a one-year supply at 2 rolls per week (for preparedness), you’re looking at about 100 rolls (about 8 12-packs or 4 cases of 24) per person.

When toilet paper goes on sale, this is when I might purchase a quantity to add to my stack. Would not want to run out of this during a post-collapse world!

 
Poll results:

Based on your toilet paper usage per week, the following table will indicate how many rolls you will need to store ahead for three months or one year.
