    Okay, I notice that some people stock the # 10 cans. So I am thinking....once you open one....then what do you do with the balance of the contents ? Even when the kids were growing up, I don't remember buying any of these big cans. Wondering if they would be feasible for smaller...

  10. Question and Answer
    Well, it's time for us to start stocking up on diapers I think. I'm 23 weeks today and we thought we'd start buying a box of diapers per week (with coupons/sales) so we'd have a nice little supply when the baby arrives. Do you have any advice on best diaper brands for the price (I've heard...

    I live in a very small apartment with 2 teens. Both have jobs so they buy most of their hair, body and skin products. My bathroom is very small and cannot hold another thing. So instead of buying them more personal care items for their stockings I bought them each 2 different boxes of their...
