    the local Wal-Mart is the only place that carries the particular brand of adult diapers that my mother-in-law prefers at the price she prefers to pay. So we're forced into a Wally World trip once a month or so. (I was ordering them online through Amazon but she tends to wait till the very last minute to tell us when she's getting low, and I can't risk the delay in availability.) So we're pretty much there only when we can't find what we need anywhere else.

    Definitely sucks.

      I am slowly building up good numbers on what we call CSR in the Army - Combat Supply Rate.  So if you use 20 of item X every month and they are sold in lots of 80 and it takes a week to arrive then you set up your subscribe and save to every 110 days.  So far I have coffee, water filters and Iron Bru figured out.  Getting close on hand soap, laundry soap and dryer sheets.

    •  Why not just order some about two weeks after (2+ / 0-)

      your last trip to Wallyhell, and then arbitrarily once a month thereafter?  Then you'd need to go to The Store Of Evil only if there was some sort of emergency that caused her to use them up faster than normal.

      in 2 days.  I'm not sure if it is proper to recommend a company here, but I've used XPMedical many times and they have a large selection to pick from.  Check them out.  And they will give you a discount if you place repeat shipments.  You can specify how many weeks between orders and they will come to you automatically.  And they don't charge for shipping if you order a case.
