As the new coronavirus first swept the United States in 2020, many Americans stockpiled toilet paper, among other things. Those who didn’t stock up found empty shelves when they went to the store to buy a new package. Although panic purchasing is not an uncommon response to a crisis like the pandemic, the stockpiling of toilet paper raised the issue of how much of it we consume in the U.S.

Did you know that the average American uses 141 rolls of toilet paper a year? If a family of four reduced their use of toilet paper by half, they could save $332 annually. Are you using more TP than you need to?
