Default best place to get a scale

I get my baby march 30th and have pretty much everything besides a scale and the food(which I will be getting Friday) and was wondering if anyone had scale recommendations or a good place to buy them. I live near detroit Michigan if that helps with nearby stores.
I could not find a thread for this so sorry if I missed one.

Hi!

I am also in the area. I got mine at Meijers in the "utensils and baking stuff" area.

It's just a regular food scale, brand is Taylor and I think I paid maybe $15-$19 for it.

Target also has similar items.

It just has to weigh in grams, nothing really fancy.

Good Luck!

I bought a small postal scale off amazon...it has the option to see the weight in grams or ounces and was less than $10 with shipping

I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, but Amazon's a good bet too, since you can check out the reviews and compare prices

I got pretty much everything else off of amazon so I'm surprised I did not think to look there! Thanks

Also is it recommended to get the calibration weights or should one be fine without it?

You can buy the calibration weights or you can remember that a nickel weighs 5 grams to check that it's operating correctly. Much cheaper that way

Maggie and I use this one http://amzn.com/B001KYSPHK

Works great, easy to clean if he poops on it, is pretty accurate and the pad fits a fullsized hedgehog.
