Every year, new items are developed and created to make being a parent easier. I remember registering at Babies R Us for items that I didn't really need. You couldn't have told me otherwise. I did my research and I thought I had the whole mother thing figured out. No wonder I fell to pieces when I had my first baby. I. Was. Clueless. Aren't we all? Thank goodness. No one would have a child if they knew how hard the first one would be. Well, if they drank enough wine and forgot to worry about it...
So as we get closer and closer to the big day here in Indyworld, I am starting to freak out. In my attempt to create feelings of control, I have started to make lists of things we need. We have so much already but after my boys and four cousins have used all of our items, some of things are pretty nasty and making their way to the garbage. On our list, bibs, new BFA free bottles and diapers.
One of the new websites that I have found this time around is Diapers.com. Have you been there? I am shocked at the deals I am finding. As a first time buyer, I had a $10 off coupon (For this deal use code: Baby10) and if you spend over $49, you get free shipping. The cost of my diapers averaged .11 per diaper for Luvs. They have all major brands and you can send them your coupons to use. The diapers show up in two days and you are stress free. This will save more than the cost of diapers because it will keep me out of Target, Costco and Walmart. Priceless.
This time around, we are also dealing with a tighter budget. That's why I love Diapers.com. Not only is easier for parents, it is cheaper. And that doesn't happen often. Do you have any tips for parents for saving on diapers and formula? And please don't suggest breast feeding and cloth diapers. I hear you. I do, I swear. Third time around and I have to do it my way.
