Re: Was "chatting" with an Instacart shopper today

@songbird   I much prefer the Select-A-Size.  That's the size that I need.  I consider the full sized paper towels a waste for my needs.

you can't use 2 together to make a full size sheet? 

Paper towels can be limited to 1 package per customer because of all the extra cleaning businesses have to do.

I do. I was an inveterate towel-ripper until they came out with the half-sheet perfs. Brawny is my brand, and now they've added vertical perfs as an option. I have a package of those towels but have to use up what I have first. It's slow going because using half-towels makes the roll last soooo much longer, LOL.

I always but the select-a-size.     Before they started making those, I used to tear the regular sized paper towels in half because they were too big.   So, I was glad to see the select-a-size.

I love selecta a size.  Just grab two if one is not enough.  DH is a real tightwad in his retirement and constantly rips even the small ones in half.  I find half sheets (really quarter sheets) laying all over the house.  Better than those guys that take three for everything they do.

If I find only the large size, no "select a size" I just make my own. Cut them in half. Why waste all this paper & the energy that goes into making them?

I prefer the select-a-size Bounty.  Half a sheet is enough to dry my hands and if I should need a bunch to clean a window for example, I tear one time off the roll; the equivalent of 3 or 4 full size towels.  Hope this is more clear than mud 😊!

Selct-a-size all the way.  What I can't see are the newish ones offered by Brawny Tear a Square which are quarter sections.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.

I prefer select a size paper towels.  The regular ones are too wasteful.

I only buy select-a-size paper towels. It's a waste to use a full sheet. Most tasks only need half a sheet.
