best deal to buy poly filter???

hey,
where does everyone get their poly filter, or any generic filter floss?
I'm looking for best bang for the buck. I'd rather buy in bulk to bring down the cost.

thanks in advance

I use the Morning Glory polyester fiber fill from Walmart. It costs less than $5 a bag and lasts for a really long time.

Walmart charges $3.47 for a lifetime supply sized bag of it. Realistically at least a years worth of you want to change it weekly.

Any brand will do. Just avoid anything marked as fire retardant and/or antibacterial. You want just 100% polyester.
