Do you have a baby at home? Â If you said yes, then you know how expensive it can get to diaper your little one! Â Not to fret though, diapers are one of the easiest things to save money on. Â Here are some tips and general rules that you can follow through on that will help you cut back on your diapering budget.
- Use coupons. Â Okay, you knew I was going to say this, but for real. Â USE COUPONS. Â Coupons can cut down on your diaper costs exponentially. Â Especially when you see high value coupons available. Â For example, there was recently a $3 Off Huggies coupon available to print out. Â You could then take that coupon to most big box stores (Walmart, Target, etc.) and grab a Jumbo size of Huggies diapers for less than $5, which is a great buy!
- Buy in bulk. Â Not everything is better bought in bulk, but diapers are. Â Think about it, you know you are going to need a lot of diapers anyway and they are always cheaper when you buy boxes of them. Â
- Shop Amazon. Â Amazon Family is a great program that gives you an additional 20% off of the cost of diapers. Â Plus, they often have clippable coupons available and most of the time you can also use Subscribe and Save to save an additional 5%. As a general rule, Amazon is where I typically find the best deals.
- Check out Goodwill. Â Goodwill?! Â Yep, thatâs what I said. In most areas of the country, Goodwill buys Target overstock items and oftentimes you can find rock bottom prices on diapers, wipes and more. Â I recently spotted a 72 count pack of Pampers for just $6.99. Â That is an extremely good deal and one that you wonât often find. Â This is a hit and miss kind of deal, so there are no guarantees, but if you are planning to stop by Goodwill anyway, it is worth checking into.
I have always set a rule to never spend more than $0.10 per diaper. And I stock up at anything $0.08 per diaper or less. Â What about you? Â What is your magic number for diaper prices? Â Can you think of any other great ways to save?
