maybe you should buy an Exakta, run the film from empty spool to empty spool (the take-up spool comes out of those) and use the built-in film knife to cut the film when ur done shooting.
It's not all that expensive film anyway, and I bet this would come out cheaper than using 24 exposure loads.

You could also probably learn to just load in the dark. I'm too much klutz for that myself.
