I cant believe that you can get 12 rolls of toilet roll for £1.89!! - I must have been living on another planet

£2 for 12 loo rolls

£1 for 2 pack bleach

£1 binliners

Poundland for branded toothpaste, shampoo etc.

Lidl for loo roll, bin liners. Costco for toothpaste and other stuff

It all depends on how many sheets are in the loo roll though doesn't it.

Some of the cheap rolls are quite small.

toothpaste I always stock up in Costco. I forget the pack size and price right now, but I know that it is much, much cheaper than the supermarkets.

Also buy toilet roll and kitchen roll. I think the toilet roll works out slightly less than supermarket packs, but it is excellent quality, and we seem toalways have a good stock in the garage. The kitchen roll is twice the size and thickness of regular kitchen roll. So that lasts well too. I am always disappointed if I am at someone else's house and pull off a square of kitchen roll. It's rubbish.

Bleach etc I tend to get at Lidl\Aldi.

bin liners - a local home bargain type store in my town.

Costco is good for kitchen roll as previously said as it is really big and thick so lasts well.

However their bin bags are very expensive. I get mine from the local council offices - £2.50 for a roll of 50, heavy duty although fancy top tie malarkey.

Lidl loo roll is made out of recycled stuff which pleases me but it is rough

Home Bargains, great stuff there.

Asda - 24 loo rolls for £8 - I was so excited when I saw this that I texted DH to tell him. I am very OTT in regards to paying for loo roll and have been known to stand there and look at each label at cost per 100 sheets. blush.

And may I add, decent loo roll too.

200 sheets on the Aldi roll - bought 4 packs of 12 rolls so £7.60 for 48 rolls!!

Poundland - 125ml Aquafresh toothpaste for £1 (bought 8), 750ml Mr Muscle spray £1 - 20 heavy duty binliners for a pound...also bought 400ml Palmolive shampoos and conditioners - chuffed

This would be very useful information.

We have a discount warehouse called JTF nearby which is brilliant for this stuff -£3.50 for 24 loo rolls, 8 kitchen rolls for 2 quid and huge boxes of washing powder for less than £15 which last us 3 months.

Only problem is they have so many bargins I spend more than I intend, although its all stuff we end up using
