$100 worth of toilet paper is about a five year supply for the average American, using a price from Costco and the first stat that google turned up for average usage.
Inflation being what it is, if you bought $100 worth of toilet paper now, you'd definitely come out ahead compared to keeping that $100 in the bank and only buying smaller amounts as needed over the next five years (without even taking into account the savings from a bulk purchase). Probably true for most other investments like stocks and bonds and so on.
So it's not just prepping, it's sound financial advice. Toilet paper is a better investment than almost anything else you could do with that money, thanks to inflation. And probably useful for barter when the shit hits the fan so to speak.
