What is the most economical way to purchase diapers? (Either sales and/or coupons or otherwise.)
And what is the most economical method excluding sales – i.e. what is the most economical way to purchase diapers on a consistent basis?
Where can coupons be obtained consistently?
Is there a difference in quality between the brand names? (Pampers/Luvs/Huggies.)
Is off-brand of a lesser quality? (i.e. Costco/Kirkland.)November 9, 2010 3:56 am at 3:56 am #708548popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Only change the baby once a day. How often do you change your own clothes?November 9, 2010 11:30 am at 11:30 am #708549SJSinNYCMember
Use cloth diapers. Its not that big of a deal once you get the hang of it.November 9, 2010 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm #708550
1) By in bulk during sales and save receipts so that you can change the size if the need arises.
2)Don’t be afraid of to try a new brand. I live in Israel. Many Americans here buy either Pampers or Huggies. I decided to try Titulim Premium which is an Israeli brand. I find that they are great, significantly cheaper, and there are usually sales on them in big chain stores.
Same goes for wipes. I think I have tried every brand. I am not afraid to try new brands and I usually try the ones on sale. I never came across a BAD pack wipes. SOme are not as moist and others dont dispense as easily, but I found that I don’t need to buy the Huggies brand which is the most expensive.November 9, 2010 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #708551QueenParticipant

I cant see myself using cloth diapers. I’d rather use disposable paper cups, plates and cutlery ( I use plenty of thosse too), but disposable diapers I am not ready to give up so fast.November 9, 2010 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #708554Sean Ben NoachMember
We use cloth diapers and cloth wipes at our home. We prefer “fuzzy buns” diapers or “swaddlebees”, they are a lot different than the picture of cloth diapers that might come to mind from the 1950s.
A lot of people like an in between option called GDiapers. They are kind of a hybrid between disposable and cloth, I didn’t care for them, but they would be cheaper than regular good disposable.
The nice thing about cloth is you can buy them used at various places online for cheaper than new, and you can sell them when you’re done and make some money back, which is great when moving up to a larger size.
I know it’s not for everyone, but it is certainly cheaper.November 9, 2010 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #708555November 9, 2010 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm #708556ronrsrMember
1. Collect coupons, or buy the coupons on eBay.
2. Wait for a sale at your local store. Go buy a lot of diapers with the sale price and coupons. Buy a lot of them.
3. Sit back and bask in your savings and piles of diapers.November 9, 2010 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #708557A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Definitely use chofetzchaim’s link. It will get you the deal for diapers thru Amazon, and it will help RSA. Known as a win win situation.November 9, 2010 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #708558AinOhdMilvadoParticipant

Luvs are cheaper than huggies and pampers and they’re still great.November 10, 2010 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #708561sms007Member
diapers.com often has sales and you get %15 off your first purchase with the code (check retailmenot.com). i find pampers work the best (but NOT the ones with dry max). oh, and diapers.com is free 1-2 day shipping- place order by 6 pm get it the next day!!November 11, 2010 3:48 am at 3:48 am #708562goldieloxMember

goldielox, I meant to say that if I were cutting corners on disposables…diapers is not the first place I’d start…November 12, 2010 4:23 am at 4:23 am #708565A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Just read the other day that Amazon.com is either buying, or has already bought, diapers.com, which may explain why they have the offers. Wish that these things had been around when my kids were in diapers! However, my oldest was born just at the tail end of when Pampers used to have points on the boxes that could be used to get really nice toys. We got some very nice Fisher Price items that way, and then it was discontinued.November 12, 2010 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #708566TheChevraMember
Where can someone get coupons for diapers?
