Anyone notice the Kirkland Toilet Paper change from 425 sheets/roll to 380?

That's 12% Shrinkflation!

What to do for 44 days/year?

Interesting one area of Costco.ca site still shows it as 425 sheets, while another (SameDay) shows it as 380...

On the other hand, anyone notice the quality decrease from a premium T.P. to recycled paper-like quality?

That's cheapskateflation! 😉

Could we not use washable cotton cloths? We used to use those for baby diapers...it holds they could work as reusable wipes for our bums. 🙂

* Note: Would likely require being run as a separate laundry load, independent of ordinary laundry (i.e., one's clothes one wears)

I think the Romans used a sponge on the end of a stick - and their empire lasted many centuries! (of course they had slaves to clean the sponges...)

....or you could actually wash and dry your arse the same way you do the rest of your body or things like cars.

Heck, why not just subscribe to a diaper service and use the entire diaper, then return it for cleaning.

Everything at CostCo is returnable if customer not satisfied.
As far as I know, condition of the offending item on return is not specified...

Isn't this a nice change from arguing or complaining?

You are correct. That is where the expression "getting the short end of the stick" comes from.

Sadly ... for some who come here, that's their main 'Modus Operandi'. sf-confused
