Need suggestions-pretty quickly!!

I am needing to order more aspen bedding for my hammy cages, but all the online stores have tripled their shipping costs for it. Like the bag is $8, shipping is around $30!!!!!! Are there any other brands of aspen that are just as soft and healthy as Kaytee? Can anyone suggest an online store for me? NOBODY around me sells it so I have to order online!

I dont know any places to order online, but have you tried a farm supply-type stores? I get massive bags of aspen at Fleet Farm for $5, and massive bags of compressed kiln-dried pine pellets for $5. Look in the horse section of any farm store, and I garentee youll find them!

Ha! I was so going to suggest a farm supply store, but Jess beat me to it. Smart thinking, Jess. But, yes, it's always cheaper there. I used to buy Aspen bedding from Wal-Mart for five dollars or something...untill I saw triple that size bag at a tractor supply shop. I --oh of course-- go there now. It's less expensive and I personally trust it more for my beloved hamster. It smells better, in my own opinion. So, I'm anxious to find out if you've found any. Good luck!

I tried Walmart, Target, pet stores, you name it around here and nobody had it. I have several farm/tractor supply stores in my area and they never even crossed my mind!! Funny thing is when I was having the same problem with my babies food, I did think of them then, but they didn't sell my brand!! I can't wait to go tonight!! Is it insane to get excited over buying bedding for your hamsters!!!!
