JTF started as a Wholesale Warehouse, I used to buy stock for my business, but now they seem to let anyone join, and you can buy single items as well as bulk. You need to check the prices though, because a lot of things are more expensive than the discount stores in town. I see they have started to stock basic food items as well, but looking at the prices they aren't any cheaper than Home Bargains or B & M stores, so I wasn't tempted to buy anything.
This is my remaining stash of toilet rolls, from the last visit, I still have a lot left. Rather than leave it till the last minute to restock, with the possibility of running out, I decided to pick up some more, while I was passing.
The Big Value soft toilet rolls come in packs of 40 at £8.40 a pack, so I bought three packs. Inside the large bag they are in smaller packs of four. It works out at 20p each or 80p for four. I don't know how much they are in a supermarket because I haven't bought any there for years, but I think this price is value for money. They are two ply, not the strongest, but I can still get away with using the minimum, and I don't want to block the drains up with stuff that takes forever to break down.
The soap powder cost £15.40. It says 120 wash pack, which makes it 12p per wash. Again I use the bare minimum here, and can probably get 150 washes out of it getting it down to 10p per wash. And because I never wash my clothes untill they are dirty or smell, it's going to last absolutely ages.
I did a little experiment with the toilet rolls, cutting two of them into pieces ready for use. Mayze always likes to help, ha ha.
Sticking to my rule of, 2 for a pee, 3 for a poo, I got 100 smaller pieces from one roll, and 66 bigger pieces from another roll.
I am happy with that. I did think I might try the wet cloth thingy, but at this price, and with carefull use, I can afford the toilet rolls.
