Roxbury Correctional Institute- How does commissary work there? If I send my money to my husband can he only buy big things like tv's once a month, once a week or how often? How often are inmates allowed to go to commissary? I know in Balto City Jail you made an order on Thursday and got it on Sunday. My husband said he can only buy his tv & clothes once every 6 months? Thank u!

The inmates are allowed commissary once a week. The larger ticket items like TVs take up a huge percentage of the monthly spending allowed, so they have six month periods where the inmate can "overspend" to get these more expensive purchases and still get regular commissary.
