Where do you guys get your gel capsules for DIY root tabs?

Hey guys I want to make some DIY root tabs, but I am having a hard time getting my hands on them Amazon has 100 for abot 3 to 4 dollars but with a 5 dollar shipping fee! Do you know where I could get some?
I have been to Rite aid they had none, according to the store websites, Walmart, Target, and CVS do not have any in their store, but I have not gone and asked yet.
Thanks!

Is there something wrong with using your old medicine capsules that you were going to throw away? I have some that my wife was going to throw away.

Time released stuff maybe, because the medicine in those are contained in little balls of their own. I wouldnt use any that came packed with loose powder. I suppose you could dry wipe them out w/a q-tip or something and it'd probably be OK, depending on what came in them. But my thinking is why chance it? Just do ice cubes if that's the only other option you have.
