I am getting ready to go psycho on my bathroom vanity lights. Between two bathrooms the fixtures have 10 light bulbs, and they are horribly inefficient and burn out constantly. I would like to switch to enclosed globe style CFL or LED to get more energy savings, and hopefully find something that lasts. The problem here is that the bulbs screw into the sockets, facing out the front of the medicine cabinet above the sinks. So twist type CFLs are out, as aesthetically they would look terrible. They need the smaller base, I believe called candelabra. I also don't want to huge dollars to fix the problem.

Any help would be appreciated

You can actually get the CFL in a candleabra type base in lots of home improvement stores, Lowes, Home Depot.

Don't know if this style works or not, but here's an example
