CFL Bulb?

Just curious where to find/what to get for a CFL bulb to replace incandescent bulbs in a regular stock light strip?

Thanks!

your local pet store does not have? If not them then, Home Depot, they have zillions of bulbs.

Pet store CFL bulbs are hella expensive. I buy mine at the grocery store (Safeway / QFC).

I got mine from lowes. Daylight 13w bulbs for about $6 for four of them I think.

Standard A type CFL's are easy to find in a pack of 4 for $0.99 (in California)

I don't know if most other states have rebate programs for them.

I usually have the best luck at walmart.

If I cant find the type I need at walmart I go to 1000bulbs.com, they have a huge selection of all kinds.

Like I needed a 25w (equivalent) Decorative Dimable type C candlebra bulb. And they had it! (In other words a very rare bulb.) I was on a mission to replace every last bulb in our house with CFL's.

I found the aquarium ones at Walmart, but didn't realize I could use "regular" ones! Darn!
