    Essentials Depot has been added to my shopping list :-).

    Look like for a 1x Gallon of PG + 1x Gallon of VG it comes to $54.95 w/ Free Shipping, which is a super-bargain when you compare that to WL and other vendors. The cost through WL would be $150.00 + Shipping for a gallon of PG and a gallon of VG since you'd have to buy it in 500ml bottles. Just to put pricing in perspective.

    A gallon of each is quite a bit, but at the same time, if you DIY, chances are you experiment a little too so buying in bulk is going to cut your costs substantially as the cost per ML of PG/VG would then be negligible at $0.0074 cents per ML. Nicotine and Flavoring would then be the most expensive part of the deal, but if you buy 100mg/ml Nicotine, you'll be using more PG/VG to dilute, so you save there too.

    I'm all about saving money, so if I can save, then I'm all for it. Using ED and WL, looks like the average cost of a 30ml bottle of 18mg (my current strength) is going to run $0.81 with shipping from WL factored in, so if we add flavoring (6ml), it still comes out to less than $1 for 30ml juice. You really can't beat that at all.

    Throw in the cost of a bottle and it may run you $1.25-$1.50.

    for me bottles, syringes, beakers and other mix related lab supplies are from amazon.

    since I already know what flavors I want more of I go to TFA direct, Wizlabs is only cheaper for the small sample sizes. once you get into larger amounts TFA is much cheaper and wiz doesnt carry the bigger bottles.

    pg and vg is much cheaper in bulk from essentials depot, usually 1 gal of each together is around 50 shipped. many people say but wow a gal, but you will be surprised how fast it goes if you start really getting into it (or like me end up supplying half the neighborhood lol)

    the only thing I ever get at wiz is 100mg 100% pg nic anymore.

    I know it sounds like it would be more cost up front this route but, not having to order for 6-7 months and wait for something makes it worth it to me

    I pretty much find everything I need at MFS as well-
    Usually you can find a coupon code for 10% off which offsets the shipping cost.
    I suppose it boils down to a matter of convenience for me more than anything.

    I use ecigexpress and myfreedomsmokes. I like the nicotine base just a tad better from myfreedomsmokes, but ecigexpress has a huge selection of flavors. Both are similarly priced and never had an issue with either.

    Nice! Can't believe you got everything you wanted in one shipment. I assume you ordered nic so it will take a few extra days to ship. Then you've got a few more days for it to arrive. What is really going to be time-consuming is unwrapping it all. You are not going to believe it when you open that box. It's going to be way cool.

    OH I didn't find it all at one place. I got the nic, a dripping attys, & a few bottles from Vaping Zone, the PG & VG from Essential Depot, Flavors & more bottles, mixing supplies, syringes & glassware from Wizard Labs, and more flavors from TFA. I should be off to a good start. Just got to find a ultra sonic cleaner for a good price and I will be all ready I think. I will check out my local places for extra syringes and stuff as some had suggested. I just wanted to be sure I had the essentials when my packages arrive because I know me...I will be up all night the first night like a mad scientist. I will not be able to wait to tear into it all & get started!! Now to read a lot and get me a juice bar/lab set-up so I have a place to create!! Thanx so much everyone for the input!! You guys are the awesomest-est-est!! You all rock!!

    Now I would love to hear any wonderful recipe suggestions. No coffee, chocolate, tobacco, or menthol.

    ditto on Myfreedomsmokes.com. They have all you need at good prices, and I always get my orders shipped the same day.

    Good luck on getting syringes locally. Unless you have a medical supply store that'll sell to the general public, you may have to stick with ordering them online. I went to Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and 10 local pharmacies - Walgreens is the only store that'd sell me syringes on the condition that I gave them my name, address, phone number and ID to verify my age and the exact reason I needed them.

    With that, the only thing they'd sell me was the 1ml Diabetic Syringes that are completely useless as the needle is fixed (non-removable) and you have to basically cut the tip off (I used a Dremel w/ a plastic slicer).

    My reasoning varied from mixing chemicals (which I do weekly) and e-cigs, measurements etc - that just doesn't fly. It's like they thought they knew what I was going to do with them and to them, whatever I was going to do was illegal. Thanks to them, Wizard Labs gets my business.

    Thankfully I don't get sick that often (1-2 every 4-6 years - maybe a cold) because I hate going to the pharmacy.
