Oh Yes, I Did

It took a little mathematical convincing, but I did it.  I showed Kyle that by spending money, we could save money.

I didn't order a lifetime supply of widgets or vitamins.  I didn't stockpile soap and dried beans.  I ordered something I use every day... something I need... something that makes my life just a little bit better:

DIAPERS!


I tried cloth diapering, and I have a friend who had three in cloth diapers at one time.  And she is a better woman than I.  I'd love to save the planet.  I'd love to put something natural next to my baby's reproductive organs.  I'd love to join the cloth diapering cliques.  But, alas, I know my limits.

I needed to not have to worry about laundering and storing enough cloth diapers for 2 in diapers 24/7 and 1 in diapers every night (you should know me well enough by now to know that I'm WAY WAY WAY too cheap for Pull-Ups).  I needed to have the freedom to wipe, wrap, and waste. 

So I confess:
I'm cheap.
But you still want me to be charming, right?  
So I use disposables. 

Well, if you watch the couponing blogs (mine isn't one of them, but I'll make a list of my favorites someday) and you listen to the chatter, you'll know that Walgreens has 3 1/2 more days of an AMAZING sale on their generic diapers.  Are you sitting down?  They're only $2.50 for a jumbo pack (36 size 3s) that's 6.9 cents/diaper.

Can I get a witness?

To get that price, you need only 1 coupon... not 1 coupon per package.  Just 1 coupon TOTAL.  That's right, boys and girls, the easiest couponing transaction of all time for the most wonderful invention of all time (other than my cookie scoop and the Internet) DIAPERS. 

I just ordered 40 jumbo packs (12 size 4s and 28 size 3s).  They won't be here until Monday so I need to go get a raincheck so I can get that price after the sale is over.

If you're interested in this deal, call your store to see if they will order them for you or just go buy what they have on the shelf.  My babies' bottoms are not sensitive and have always done just fine in whatever diaper we use.  So far, they hold the wet and the sticky messes.  And, they've got a monkey on the front... it's cute.  

You'll need a Walgreen's Infant Care Coupon book.  I found mine in the pharmacy.  In this coupon book, there is a $2/1 coupon.  When they scan this coupon, it takes $2 off of every package you buy.  The packages are $8.99 and they are buy one get one free.  So $8.99 + Free - $2 first package - $2 second package = $4.99 or $2.50/package!

How many jumbo packs do YOU need for a six month supply!?!?! Who else is going to cut their diaper budget in half!
