No, I am pretty sure it was in the baking section. Like I said will check tomorrow.

Flax seed is also sold in our hot cereal aisle. I buy the organic & it's kept in the cooler at the smaller markets here. I have purchased both the ground & whole flax seed at Costco as well (I use it for making my granola & think it's kind of pricey to be putting into a bag that cheaper white rice will work in...but that's just me)

Yikes... I am such a dork.... our local organic health food store is called the Good Food Store.... let your fingers do the walking and call around for the buckwheat. I paid $2.30 a pound a few weeks ago and I use approx 2 pounds in each one. I just use 10 inch flannel squares and sew 3 sides and then part of the 4th, turn it right side out and fill the 'bag' approx 2/3 full. OH, AND DON'T LET THEM SELL YOU THE BUCKWHEAT HULLS..... NOT THE SAME THING....

Okay, the flax seed they have at WalMart is called milled flax seed. Not sure what that means. It is $1.87 for 12 ounces. So sort of pricy.

Thank you so much for checking it out. I will look for it when I go to the store. I would have used white rice, but Gchathie said not to :!:

I feed whole flax to my horses. :D At Tractor Supply it used to be $0.79 per lb, at Wegmans it was $2.00 per lb. It's more now. But for heat bags--try Tractor Supply. You have to ask for it at the horse feed/shavings counter. You can get it by the lb.

Just to let you all know I have a problem with ANY food product....just because it could bring moths or mice or who knows what else.....I used poly beads in my pin cushion ...but I would think maybe play sand or something like that

The poly-pellets probably wouldn't work if you were going to use the bags for heating and applying to aches and pains. But they would be most excellent for the crafts you described. :) :)

I believe they also have flax seed at our local farm supply store here so you could look in your area at one of those stores.
