With a little one on the way I’m trying to decide whether or not it’s worth it to stock up on diapers. Between Rite Aid, CVS and Amazon there are quite a lot of deals that enable savvy moms to buy diapers for 90 to 95 percent off the retail prices.
A lot of the coupon blogs I read have lists of sizes to buy and suggestions on brands to purchase, but it seems slightly insane to stock up on diapers before the baby comes. However, it seems even crazier to wait until after the baby is born and pay full price for them.
While I don’t have a child towing along behind me, it might make sense to stock up on products while I have the time to scour sales and clip coupons, but I also know that some diapers work better for some babies and some even have allergic reactions to others.
So, I’m not exactly sure if I should start looking through the sales circulars or if I should just avoid diaper shopping for the time being. If I purchase diapers in advance and they don’t work out I suppose I can always donate them.
If I can buy a pack for just a dollar or two then it might be worth it. On the other hand I don’t want to waste time shopping for things we won’t use.
