The Diaper Diaries
For those of you scared to read any further fearing this is a descriptive post about a diaper blowout, breath easy (literally)! Perhaps another time….(kidding, mom!!!!)
I just wanted to post about our
car payment diaper budget. When we first started telling people we were expecting quadruplets, diapers almost always became the next topic of conversation. At the beginning we estimated diapers alone (@ 40 per day) would cost $20.00 a day!!! That’s $600 a month, basically a mortgage payment!!!!! Yikes!
However, thanks to many of you: our family at The Bible Church of Brownsburg
, staff at Brown Elementary
, members of Pittsboro PHI BETA PSI, Reynolds United Methodist, and countless individuals who donated a pack or two – 2007 was a FREE Diaper Year for the Murray Crew!!!!! What a GINORMOUS blessing this has been!
On another diaper note….have you noticed that people are more passionate about their favorite diaper brand than they are about politics? Seriously, people divide friendships over Huggies! So you want my opinion????? (I do consider myself a diaper connoisseur) ….I’m a Pampers Girl if money isn’t an issue, but Luvs for value. However, Pampers Swadlers are worth every penny in the beginning! Store-brands seem to cost more in the long run, because you end up changing more often, because they don’t hold the um, ….elements! We’re bumping up to size 4’s this week!
I’ll look forward to your comments on how much you agree or beg to differ with me….Better yet, where I can find the steal of the week on diapers! =) =) =) =)
