Did you know that toilet paper sheet size has changed? Used to be 4.5". Now it's down to about 4".

You aren't going to find THAT data on the package.

I'd swear the weight of the individual sheets has changed also, even for two-ply, based on where you buy it. I buy TP at Wal-Mart normally, but when in need, same brand and ply, at Kroger. Different weight as in how thin the pulp was squeezed during processing, I guess.
