Recently, I purchased a bag of CVS Sleep Shorts (which I truely don't like). I do say though, as I was walking home, I thought about my error of way, and have taken my mistakes, and will give them to you, hoping that they will help your next experience with buying diapers:
1) Make sure you know how to get there, and back. Walking? Calculate the closest store, away from town. Figure out the "path of least resistance".
2) Have a ride? Make up an excuse. "I'm buying a few 2-liter bottles of soda,".
3) A Backpack is a must. Unless you have a car, you don't want to walk home with clearly visible diapers do you?
In The Store:
1) ALWAYS know how much the diapers are. This came to me when I went up to pay and was 6 cents short. An amount that would have cost me, if I were older.
2) When calculating how much the diapers are, add $5 to the amount that includes tax. The diapers I bought were priced as $10, but came out to $12.06.
3) Know the diaper, and the packaging, so you don't mistake one for another, i.e. Tena Maxi Slip, Tena Super, etc.
4) Have a second choice, and a third. My first was depends, but I was running very low on cash.
5) The Cashier doesn't care what you are getting. He is being paid to take money and give money. He don't care what you buy, etc.
6) When standing in line, don't make eye contact. This may bring up unwanted conversations, or awkward stares.
1) Take the streets that don't intersect with the main streets.
3) The mission is complete, you can get home safely.
As for getting home, you must take it from there. The possibilities of people at home, the dorm, or whereever are too great for me to write into this post. I hope this helps!
