If You buy Quilted Northern Toilet Paper....

just to let you know they have changed the packaging look along with cutting the sheets per roll. It is the newest grocery store shrink ray product of 2018.

The 352 sheet mega rolls, Ultra soft & strong variety, are now 328 sheet mega rolls.

The 330 sheet mega rolls, Ultra plush variety, are now 308 sheet mega rolls.

Just letting you know

This may, one day, force me to purchase a bidet attachment for my toilet and complete my business bare-handed.

Manufacturers have been doing this for years. I can't say that I've actually counted the difference in toilet paper sheets, though....

I came across an article about "What was used before toilet paper" Good Reading!

If you decide to go back in time be sure you end up in China where they've used paper (or very similar) for centuries!

The others... blech, shudder, not so inviting.

Oh, I've visited places outside of the US where their toilet paper (they don't come in rolls) were equivalent to using coarse sandpaper.

Thinking that might just be a tad better than the slippery shiny type that not only does not absorb - it just smears! Great Britain comes to mind.

And not just paper products. I wish that I'd had the ingenuity to take measurements and keep a record of the change in size and price of certain candy bars. At first they just increased the price, then they shrunk the size, then raised the price again, then they offered a larger bar for a higher price that more than offset the increase in size. Next the cycle repeated itself so that the bar is back to about it's original size, but the price still goes up.

When I think about inflation, that's about the first thing which comes to mind - how a 5 cent Snickers bar is now at least $1.00, 20 times as much, yet the bar size is pretty much the same as it was when it was a nickle. For the record, I think that works out to 2000% inflation - more than just about anything else I can think of over the same period.

I used to love to teach Scouts about the importance of using a checklist when packing your backpack before a trip. If you forget 1 small but important thing such as toilet paper once you're out in the woods, the alternative was to find a nice and pliable large leaf from a tree, poke your middle finge through it, and that's your scraper/toilet paper.

No one ever forgot anything, checklists in hand.
