If you’re like most consumers, you buy your toilet paper at the grocery store while you’re picking up food and other household products. But an increasing number of consumers are buying groceries online, and that rate is expected to grow fivefold over the next 10 years.
Toilet paper is one of many products that consumers can now have delivered directly to their front door. By buying in bulk, they can even save money over what they would have spent at the store, especially if they choose “Subscribe and Save.” Another big trend is the move toward extra-large toilet paper rolls. This may seem more convenient, but many consumers have purchased these larger rolls, only to find they don’t fit on the spindle.
We’ve taken a look at the best toilet paper and chosen our favorites.

Tips and Advice
- Toilet paper rolls have been growing in recent years, with some manufacturers promising double and triple the sheets in each roll. This can be problematic if your spindle sits too close to the wall. Many manufacturers have offered extenders for free to resolve this issue, so be sure to check.
- If you have a toilet paper holder next to your toilet for extra rolls, you may also find that today’s larger-sized rolls don’t fit.
- Although thick, absorbent toilet paper may seem valuable for your day-to-day wiping needs, there can be a negative to that. Some thicker toilet paper doesn’t dissolve well, possibly leading to plumbing issues. If you’re on a septic tank, you may also find you need to have it pumped more often due to wads of undissolved tissue. Angel Soft Toilet Paper is designed to dissolve quickly, alleviating those concerns.
- An increasing number of consumers have a focus on eco-friendliness. Both Quilted Northern Ultra Plush Toilet Paper and Angel Soft Toilet Paper are Sustainable Forestry Initiative certified. Angel Soft’s toilet paper features recyclable packaging, as long as your local recycling facility accepts 4-level plastics.
- By buying in bulk, you can save money on toilet paper while also having it conveniently dropped off at your front door. Extend that savings further by signing up for Subscribe and Save. With Quilted Northern Ultra Plush Toilet Paper, you’ll get 24 rolls, and Angel Soft gives you 60 rolls for around the same price. Amazon Brand – Presto! 308-Sheet Mega Roll Toilet Paper beats both prices with 24 rolls.
