A couple of stretches in NYC ago, we ran out of wipes; I'd forgotten to bring a new Costco brick with me, and the Pampers emergency purchase from a couple of months ago ran out--and anyway, those plastic tubs don't keep wipes moist very long. It seems like all it takes is a day or so for the top 5-6 to dry out.
Which is why I was feeling a little adventurous and bought the Key Food store brand refill pack during a visit to some friends in The Slope. [Do people in Brooklyn actually say that, or is it like San Fran, and Hew-ston Street, verbal badges for identifying hopeless tourists?]
The Key Food wipes were cheap ($3.99 for two 80+/- packs) and come in a resealable pouch. The ducks all over were not a factor. They turned out to be spongy and strong, not scented or gross, and I thought they were a great find.
But by the end of the weekend, the kid was claiming she never needed her diaper changed. Then we'd say, "but you stink honey, and it looks like you're smuggling a frozen cornish game hen in your pants." [See, because there's no way a turkey would --never mind.] And she'd beg us with tears in her eyes, "No wipes! No wipes!" It was really sad.
When we got back to the Costcos her butt knows--and apparently loves--she was happy as a pig in a poke.
