    Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine. Long time Charmin user and I've noticed for a long time now that the width of EVERY roll in the store has gotten considerably smaller. Does anyone make wider TP these days? Damn the cost-cutting measures!

    I know this will get some jokes going....but it truly does annoy me. :D

    32 years old and I'm already an angry old man....

    My wife brought home 18 rolls of asswipe that has no cardboard tube in the center! That's supposed to be a good idea? It rolls off the holder like an eccentric cam!
    She says she likes it because she seems to use less of it. I told her she wouldn't use a whole roll per sitting if she wouldn't yank it off the roll like she was trying to start a chainsaw!!!

    i'll take the shrinking rolls over the giant rolls in the corporate environment. it ain't natural to have rolls that big or that difficult to unroll. but i do sympathize with the OP..we want our paper and we want it right!

    Common practice. My wife was just complaining the other day how she has to buy two of most items now to cook. REcipes call for standardized sizes...teaspoon, pint, cup, etc.
    With container sizes shrinking to 11 ounces or whatever, the contents no longer measure out to standard measures and you end up needing two bottles/boxes/bags/whatever for your recipes.

    I think the burden has fallen upon me to provide the obligatory Seinfeld references tonight.

    I heard that the same company that makes Preparation H is going to start manufacturing toilet paper. I would expect their product to shrink.

    I suspect that most other companies are trying to wipe up on any profits that have been left hanging around. For years, they have been on a roll, but the end is near.
