Are we still being taxed in the US for toilet paper at 6 cents per roll?

Yeah, and the fish isn't the same quality that it used to be either - kind of mushy. Same is true of Gortons - same size "fillets" as Van de Camps.

I remember a friend went on a trip to Russia back in the 80s, and she brought an additional suitcase full of extra soft toilet paper with her to barter for gifts to bring home in the emptied suitcase. Apparently, the toilet paper back in the days of the old Soviet Union was like using scratchy brown paper bags.

Gotta be careful. I remember a boy scout in our troop who forgot his TP and used a handful of leaves. A handful of poison ivy leaves.

Lol, I've heard of that happening, which is why I always recommended a large maple or oak leaf. Easy to recognize.

Worse, I've heard of kids throwing poison ivy or oak on a fire, then everyone getting sick who breathed in the smoke.

I have been using Angel Soft for years. No complaints. My bottom is still happy.

Chramin's new slogan on their packages is... "it makes fun to go".

Because you just know I do not really miss this stuff..

We finally have the 2018 cut in the size of the toilet paper rolls in the red packaging. Less poops per roll in another brand this year.

The old size if you can get one is 308 sheets per roll in so called mega size:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Charmin-U...Rolls/44886117

The new mega size is 286 sheets per roll:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Charmin-U...roll/482328930

The double sized roll is down to 143 sheets per roll in the red packaging. The blue double size packaging is 142 sheets per roll for now. A whole whopping one more sheet per roll in the red packaging for the double size roll.
