I use old wipes containers that I already had around the house. If you don't have some, ask neighbors, co-workers, family, church members. Most people just throw them away so it shouldn't be hard to find 4 or 5 of them. I pre-fold my paper towels when I'm on the phone, watching our toddler in the tub, etc. This way when I run out, they're already folded. All I have to do is add the water. If your buy the paper towels on sale with coupons, you can make the wipes for about 1/2 cent or less per wipe as opposed to the 2-3 cents per wipe they cost at the store. It may sound like a small amount, but it REALLY adds up in the long run. Good luck!

I have noticed too that in a pinch, when I run out of wipes, that the 1 papertowel is equivalent to like 2 or 3 wipes. I don't know why. But those papertowels are better.
Wipes are so tiny, for every poop, I gotta use at least 3 or 4. It adds up! $9.80 was the last time I was at Walmart for the Huggies Sensitive wipes (some of those cheaper brands irritate the little bums).
