I use the tank exchange to ditch expired tanks occasionally. Cost wise it is up to three times more expensive that getting refills at costco etc but after deducting cost of propane it works out to around 18 bucks for a decent 20lb tank.

We have two costco's locally that sell propane. One is a flat rate per tank and the other is by the pound. There are other places that are close in price to refill.
If I'm going by I usually top up vehicle with gas as it usually runs at least 4 cents a litre cheaper than most places.

Wouldn't worry about small promenade tanks in an apartment. Keep in cool spot. The comment about buying adapter so you can connect larger tank is an excellent idea. I would not store that tank in your apartment

Propane cylinders and COLEMAN .... stoves. Single or double. Small tanks or with adapter and use 25 lbs bbq tanks.
I have others sources as well, but this will be my main unit for easy on and off use.
Buy a case of 12 tanks and your good for a good time in an apartment or urban home. When possible, Cook up enough food for more than one meal at a time. Large steak or small, roughly same energy but now you don’t waste fuel on second meal.
