Please can you tell me how much toilet paper it is normal to expect humans to use in a week.

Please can you also tell me how many people are living there so I can see how we compare?

I can honestly say I have never kept track.

3-4 rolls per week. Family of 4

About 7 maybe a couple more if any have gone for a swim. Family of five only four toilet users but a toddler who likes to flush things.

About 5 a week. Family of 4, all at work/school during the week, home evenings and weekends.

Depends on if you have anyone from Continental Europe staying in your house. The girls seem to use a roll a day, probably something to do with not using it at home.

Just under a roll per person per week if it's Cushelle or Andrex. More if it's the stuff like Nicky or the one from B&M with a larger middle (so fewer sheets). Hate going to holiday cottages that are stingy with the stuff - invariably leads to late-night drives to petrol stations for emergency supplies.

I am asking because adult DS has made the toilet roll budget go through the roof we are getting through 12 rolls in a week!

TowerRavenSeven Tue 17-Oct-17 20:32:17

3-4 Rolls per week as well but it is that super thin 500 sheet/roll industrial stuff that bulk buy stores carry. We have two males and one female (me) in our family and I've been told by my mother and husband I use inordinate amounts of the stuff.

AllRightNowInFactItsAGas Tue 17-Oct-17 20:32:24

I should add just myself and dh plus him now!

NoKidsTwoCats Tue 17-Oct-17 20:33:03

Two of us. About one a day as husband seems to use about a hundred sheets every time he has a poo.

Frege Tue 17-Oct-17 20:33:39

1-2 a week, family of 4.

TowerRavenSeven Tue 17-Oct-17 20:34:29

12 of the regular rolls probably equal what we (ahem...I) use in a week since our rolls are Giant!

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Tue 17-Oct-17 20:35:02

Three of us in the house - nearly a roll a day.

Gah!! Just as I thought!

Loads. Dh has a morning ritual. He drags loads off the roll and gives the seat a wipe, then he drags off a load more and wipes his armpits with it (in lieu of having a wash, the dirty article, he showers in the evening), then he drags off even more and blows his nose. Twice.
Then even more is used to clean his glasses and finally three sheets are used to clean his ears. And then, finally he has a wee. Which involves more paper for 'dabbing' purposes.
This elaborate everyday ritual means that the two of us go through about 5 rolls a week
I watch this ritual every morning from the comfort of my bed. It's bizarre yet I like it because it's him.

Justabadwife Tue 17-Oct-17 20:37:31

There is 3 of us and we must use very little. I bought 9 rolls 4 weeks ago and i put a new one on the holder this morning and still have 1 left.
I think DH has a phobia of using too much incase his mum tells him off (he moved out 9 years ago and he could use a roll a day for all i cared)

Lostmyemailaddress Tue 17-Oct-17 20:37:57

6-7 rolls there's 1 adult and 7 kids one too young for the toilet and 1 who is attempting to potty train who likes to wipe his bum no matter what he does.

DubaiismyBlackpool Tue 17-Oct-17 20:39:07

DD2 - 4 Uni students, 1 roll A DAY. They’re all girls, so I think they are using the loo roll for other things too. Though DD2 now takes her own personal supply with her. Every single time.

Me and DH - 2 a week. He’s very frugal and I just use whatever I want. He’s learned not to comment grin

When all 8 of us were at home, we went though 4 a week.

Vanillamanilla1 Tue 17-Oct-17 20:40:05

About 5-6 rolls a week
There are 4 of us

Ilovehamabeads Tue 17-Oct-17 20:41:17

There are 4 of us in the house and DH poohs for his country. I buy a 9 pack every week.

sadiemm2 Tue 17-Oct-17 20:42:28

Oh lawks.... You mentioned adult Ds.. Dare I mention he's using it for other purposes other than bum wiping?

DorisDangleberry Tue 17-Oct-17 20:43:21

Four of us, 2 adults 2 teenagers.

On Sunday evenings everyone in the house is given 8 individual sheets to last the week - we need 2 on a Saturday morning as Friday is curry night

GreatBigPolarBear Tue 17-Oct-17 20:43:37

4 of us-2 school age children. It's hard to tell because the fuckers keep starting new rolls so we tend to have 3 or 4 on the go angry.
But I buy a pack of 9 per week and seldom have any left over
