Cost of Diapers Over the Years – 2010,2011 and 2012

Baby, Uncategorized
  Back in 2010, I created a spreadsheet with the cost of diapers for the year and it is amazing to see how much I've saved.   My plan is to continue that this year.  I want other Moms and Dads to know there is a way to cut costs on disposable diapers.  You don't have to be a member of Sam's Club or Costco to get diapers, and even those places I find to be most expensive.  By looking out for good deals in unusual places combining it with coupons you can stockpile on diapers and save a lot of money.   In 2010, I saved over $400 and it only cost me $400 for diapers. My twin boys are growing so fast and at 7 months old they were…

Problems with Babies R Us Returns and Exchanges

Babies R Us, Baby, Uncategorized
The other day I got out all by myself with the twins and it was so exciting.  I even got FREE Nivea body wash at Walmart.  It was a good day. Today, I thought I would go to Babies R' Us to exchange 4 boxes of size 1 large box of diapers with my Mom helping.  Note these are Babies R's Us brand diapers.  I got crazy about buying size 1 diapers back in January.  I was thinking the twins would need them for a couple months but I was wrong.  They are growing and soon will be in size 2.  I thought at the time it would be easy to exchange.  Life has been crazy and trying to find my receipts was more difficult then I thought.  Besides it…
