As the new coronavirus sweeps the United States, many Americans have stockpiled toilet paper, among other things. Those who didn’t stock up find empty shelves when they go to the store to get a new package. Although panic purchasing is not an uncommon response to a crisis like the current pandemic, the stockpiling of toilet paper raises 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?
