Frugal Diapers... be willing to buy off brand!

I thought I'd participate in Frugal Friday this week. Especially since I have a concept to share. It's been said time and time again, but I may have a new twist on it... diapers. :)

Brand loyalty... does it keep you paying the higher prices? I arrived at CVS the other day with a plan, and part of that plan was to pick up a pack of Pampers diapers... on sale, with ECBs. They still weren't going to be cheap, and it wasn't the best deal ever, but we were OUT OF DIAPERS in Sweet Pea's size and I was desperate... and at least it would generate ECBs.

We started in the tooth paste aisle where we picked up a couple tubes of tooth paste that actually made us a couple bucks... then we split up, My Beloved to the greeting card aisle to get a couple engagement cards and me to the diaper aisle. I was there a long time searching and searching. Turns out, no size 1 Pampers... anywhere. I didn't even see where they should have been. I searched and searched before stumbling on her size... but it was in the CVS brand. Shucks... that's not going to work. Then I saw it... the "Clearence, 50% off" tag. I was able to get twice the diapers for half the money I was prepared to spend all because I was willing to buy what was available! Talk about exciting!

I went to CVS today to try and work a pampers deal and guess what? No size 2 pampers to be found! But I saw the CVS diapers at50% off, too. Not free, but still a great deal for diapers! Praise the Lord for unadvertised deals- you never know what you'll find! :)

I love cheap diapers! I got 2 jumbo packs of Luvs at Target the other day for $8.50 (for both! with coupons). I was so excited! Congrats on the great find!

That was one thing Matt and I learned early on! Thanks to Judah's newborn allergy to diaper dye, we found Pampers Swaddlers. Paying out the nose for those made us browse around. Target brand diapers are HALF of what name brand diapers go for...and they work just as well. Once Judah's skin was tough enough to handle dye, we enjoyed the half-price luxury! Thankfully, Elijah never had a dye issue. He just has an expensive taste -- no off brand formula for that sensitive tummy! :-P

don't you worry at all about the environment effects of cheap diapers? just a question. not to mention the chlorine and other chemicals near baby's skin?
