    CountryGirl10 - my rule of thumb with paper towels is to get a 6 pack of regular rolls for $3.50 or less after sale, coupon, reward. If you can get them for $4 or less, you are doing good. $5 is too much to pay for 6 rolls of TP. That makes my usual buy price .58 or less per regular roll.

    I also find that paper towel brands like Sparkle and Bounty Basic often have more sq feet per package than higher end brands like regular Bounty and Viva. If you have a choice between multiple products for the same price, look at the total square feet of the package to find the least expensive one.

    Thanks vlynn, GJan and abrown012288 for posting the great deals today!

    How is the best way to determine a good price on bounty paper towels when looking at the ads? There are so many different sizes (number of sheets) of the rolls of paper towels and often the ads do not always give sq ft of the roll or other info to be able to compair prices per sheets (price per sq ft). Thanks.
