CRF Shopping Puzzle Hell

Trying to order CRF supplies all at once is starting to remind me a little too much of certain childhood logic word problems:
"Sally carries items A, B and C; John sells B & D; Billy sells all four, and Betty sells two.  One of the boys requires a prescription, one child's website is malfunctioning, and one of the girls has the best prices on item A & D.  How long can you try to figure out who to buy from without wanting to strangle all of them?"

That's not even taking into consideration the unwelcome news that there is apparently a shortage of all 3 types of fluids.  Or that some sites don't distinguish properly between the Ultra-Thin Wall needles by Terumo Medical and the slower, less sharp Thin Wall or Regular Wall ones by Terumo Sur-Vet.

This is with help from the pages on obtaining inexpensive CRF supplies over at Tanya's  & Scooter's sites.  I'd be up to my ears in hand-written pricing/product charts otherwise, based on when I had to do this the first time back in 2007!
