I always knew our diaper bill was pretty huge, but I was scared to add it up and find out exactly how much we’re spending. My husband is pretty bad at managing money and usually ends up going to the corner store on a midnight run for diapers when we’re out and it’s really dumb. The diapers there are way more expensive than just buying them online in bulk. It turns out that we spent an average of $75 a month on diapers, which I think is way higher than it should be. We definitely spent last on diapers with our daughter, and that was because I managed most of the expenses then.
I took it upon myself to order some diapers online and I think I did a pretty good job, if I don’t say so myself. I found a good guide on getting cheap diapers in bulk online and it helped a lot. It turns out that Amazon has a program that lets you save a bunch of money on your diapers if you order them in bulk. It makes way more sense to me to order a bunch of diapers at once rather than run to the store every week because we ran out. A little planning goes a long way, I think.
Now all I have to do is wait. I made an order earlier today and supposedly the first shipment is supposed to come in tomorrow. I went with the Huggies 162 pack which ended up being about $35/pack and should get us through a month. That’s basically 1/2 off what we normally spent, which is insane. If I knew about this earlier, I would have been doing it all along. Hahaha, now I get to rub it in Ron’s face.
I also spent the day cleaning up. It’s incredible how toddlers can fit things in places I never thought possible. Like, how did he get cheerios inside his toy box? Some things I’ll never figure out. The closets were also a long time coming and it was nice to clean them out. I found an old pair of shoes I’ve been meaning to wear but never did, too bad summer is almost over. It’s still going to be nice for a while though, so we should probably make the most of it. We’re going on a family trip to the park for a picnic on Sunday, which should be nice. It always is.
