Have you ever wondered how mommies can afford their impossibly large cloth diaper stash? Here are some tips to help you plan for your baby or bulk up your stash if you already have a baby with little or no money!
Tip #1 Create a Gift/Baby registry on Amazon
Why Amazon, you ask? Let’s start with the Free $35 value Baby Welcome Box that Amazon sends you! Amazon makes it simple and easy for friends and family to purchase cloth diapers for your little one’s fluffy bum!
Tip #2 Ask!
Sometimes finding the right gift can be a real pain! Instead of getting a random set of dish towels on certain holidays or birthdays, why not ask for a gift certificate from your favorite cloth diapering store? Think of all of the gifts you can get throughout the year; Mother’s Day, Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary. The list goes on and on!
Tip #3 Giveaways
I don’t know of ONE single cloth diapering store online or otherwise who doesn’t participate in giveaways. Most of them host one every. Single. Month. Your Cloth diaper is no different, we are currently having a monthly cloth diaper giveaway for all current newsletter subscribers! If you’re subscribed, you’re entered! Enter the drawings; I have won at least 4 from various online cloth diaper manufacturers!
Tip #4 Sales/Seconds
Not free, but close enough! Like giveaways, there is not one store that does not offer sales. It is vital to the health of the business and for the consumer. By finding a good deal, you can save a ton of money, and usually, you get to stack up coupons, free shipping, or other discounts.
Buying seconds is also a great idea if you are on a tight budget. Seconds are merchandise, diapers that are not *entirely* perfect but fully functional. The diaper might have a minor flaw, such as a misprinted label or wonky stitching.
The only thing to watch out for with seconds is that usually they come “as is” with no warranty, so if you plan on using your diapers for multiple kids, you might want to stick with waiting for a sale on a regular product that way if an elastic becomes loose, or a snap is wonky and needs to be replaced, the diaper manufacturer will fix it.
Whatever way you choose to go, building up your stash is fun! Trying new types of diapers is the spice of life!
