Here I am, with a 6 day old baby that still fits into newborn diapers! She went through the package the hospital gave us and my wonderful husband went out and bought another package of 'peanut diapers' for her. (I've taken to calling her 'peanut' seeing as she's the smallest newborn I've ever had :).
All that was for my Frugal Friday tip ..... Save money on diapers!
Obviously the first week or two babies grow very quickly. But after that there are tons of ways to save money on diapers.
- Buy them by the case
- Use coupons
- Use a warehouse club that will give you a discount on the case, plus you can use one of there coupons and a manufacturers coupon all at the same time
- If you have an abundance of coupons that will expire before you will use them buy a bunch of small packages and use a coupon for every one. This is also effective if you're not sure you will use a whole case before the baby outgrows them.
- If you're not stuck on a specific brand (like me:) some generic may work well for you. You won't have coupons but may save just as much in the long run.
