    The plastic shims (wedges) sold for toilets are a pain in the keyster to cut.
    There are two types - the hard ones and the flexible ones. They look the same. The flex ones cut easily, but they're stiff enough to do the job.

      We set our toilets on plaster of paris. Takes a few minutes longer but leaves a firm, level base all around the bowl and does not deteriorate. Unlike grout you can work it loose if need be, any time in the future.

      I should add that plaster is only used on ceramic tile, stone or other firm flooring, not wood, vinyl, or etc.
