Ordered without looking in my tackle box

    Got a 10ml bottle of a watermelon because they didn't have larger and I thought I was low. I have a 120ml bottle of that one.

    Got lucky and only got a 30ml bottle of a watermelon brand I "needed", I only had 2 other 30ml bottles of. It's used to an even mix with the above flavor so I still don't have enough.

    Got 30ml of a brand of pomegranate that I like better than the open 30ml I'm using. While mixing I noticed I had a 30ml bottle on my counter of this flavor. In my tackle box I have a 120ml bottle.

    I did get 1 30ml bottle and 1 120ml bottle of flavors I needed and a new to me flavor I wanted to try but turns out everything else was stocking up on already well stocked items. And it wasn't even panic vapocolypse buying because of the threat against flavors.

    I moved my tackle box to an easier to access area.

    LOLZ... Thanks for the chuckle. Wish I had that issue. I still haven't pulled the trigger on DIY yet. I got laid off this winter [First time in 3 years] and I wasn't prepared for it. Money is real tight.
    I would like to see your chemistry set.

    If you could swing just getting started it would save a ton of money. Once I started DIY I stopped tracking my expenses to make sure I wasn't spending more than smoking. Going from $20/wk on liquid to >$2/wk really created savings.
    Maybe a small amount of nicotine and a few easy flavors in 10ml (mints/menthol are easy if you like them) could get you started to find a recipe you like.

    That's my easier to access tackle box. My most used flavors are on my counter and a lot of these were trial flavors that didn't work out that I hope to find a use for.

    My counter from them stopped working long ago. That was part of how I made sure I wasn't spending more than I did on cigarettes.

    I think I stocked up when RTS was having the going out of business sale so it's been a while for me.
    But I do know every time I dip into the Wintergreen I panic and have to remind myself I already bought that replacement or I'd have 5 30ml bottles of that.

    IMO we need someone to kick start the DIY Swaps thread again. It's been awhile since anyone has traded anything on there. With all the newbies to DIY in the last 5-6 months especially...surely there are flavorings some people are finding out they don't like and/or will never use again. Or...they bought way too much of it to ever use.

    Here's a link to it (most recent posts on p. 9):

    Another one, to the PIF forum and swaps in general:

    Buying too much seems to be an easy thing to do.

    I'm not sure I'd do any swapping but it's a good idea.
    I'd have to taste some of mine if I did swap. I bought too much (30ml of everything when I started) of some powerful flavors that are said not to keep.

    The ones I have 120mls of are like gold to me.

    I like this forum site. There is so much to learn. It is cool that there is a "Swap" thread. Possibly after I have been making my own I will have something to swap. I bought my first three flavors today. For the rest who haven't made the plunge, come on in. The juice is fine.... LOL. Like I know anything yet....? Not so much!!!

    Here is the recipe calculator I like the best. Juice Calculator
    Mix small 5ml amounts measuring with syringes (not drops) and then tweek the recipes from there and you should be able to hit on something. Don't start off with high amounts of flavoring, often times less tastes better.
    Inwara trends towards small percentages 1%-3%
    Flavour Art is usually 1%-5%
    The Flavor Apprentice is really random.
    You could make a post asking what percentages people have used with a specific flavor if you run into trouble. (There was brand specific threads with a running total but like food recipe sites around the internet some people either have very odd tastes or they just submit stuff without trying.)
