Small personal care items may be available from hotels, motels, & dentists: consider asking them for donations or for a reduced price on a box of samples. Best bets for shopping: Costco for diapers all sizes, baby wipes, toilet paper (prefer individually wrapped) & Kleenex. The big boxes have multiple packs inside. Walmart, Target, and Dollar Store for potions, lotions, shampoos, household cleansers, and feminine hygiene products. We’re looking for mediumsized (not giant family-sized) items. Example: 10 quart-size items work better than 1 giant economy-sized item.
