2. I hate the new size in public restrooms. It is half as wide and you can see through it.

If their idea is to save money, I can't see how that is working. People use 5 times more.

3. Used to buy it all the time. I switched over

to the Charmin that they sell. It goes on sale at the rate we seem to use it. It's about two bucks more than the Kirkland one.

8. We thought it was us!

It's thinner yes, but also scratchier. So I looked up some info and found out they had some complaints about it not being good for septic systems. In the attempt to make it thinner, they have made it rougher as well. We had some rolls from a previous pack in the guest bath and you can really tell the difference!

11. Was a scott tissue user since childhood. Had to switch because it got so thin and rough.

I'm sure they, like all businesses find ways to make changes to make more money. In this case, they lost a customer. Switched to Charmin. May actually be paying more, but the product is better.

Also refuse to buy ice cream that comes in a container that looks like a 1/2 gallon, but instead of 2 quarts of ice cream it's really 1.5 quarts. Price is the same or more as when it was full 1/2 gallon. Same thing for pints. 16 ounces in a pint, but many brands are selling 13-15 ounces in what looks like pint containers. Doesn't seem like much, but when you multiply 1-2 ounces over the millions of product they sell, the manufactures are reaping big profits.

14. Scott is a non-Koch product.

So it's what I buy. You can get more than one type of Scott, too. Try another type.

15. The TP companies say things like "8 equals 16" on the label. If so and my bill comes

to $100 I can only pay $50 and we're even! Correct?

2 more things that bug me about tp -- quilted and scented.

Time for a bidet.
