Shrinking toilet paper

ASDA have applied some pre-Brexit shrinkflation to their own brand toilet paper "Shades So Soft". This time you get 10 fewer sheets per roll. That's 1¼ rolls less paper for the same price.

Contents: 24 rolls, 2 ply tissue. Average 200 sheets per roll. Sheet size 118mm x 104.5mm. Total area 59.18m².
59.18m² for £8.00 (2018-05-02)
Contents: 24 rolls, 2 ply tissue. Average 190 sheets per roll. Sheet size 118mm x 104.5mm. Total area 56.23m².
56.23m² for £8.00 (2019-02-11)

They're still advertising it as Bigger Pack Better Value but now it costs 5% more to get the same amount of paper.
