My Diaper Stock Up Prices

If you've been reading the blog the last few months, I'm sure you've noticed a few couponing posts where I mentioned that I got diapers.  Well, I've gotten a lot of diapers.  When we first found out we were pregnant at the end of March, I did some major research as to what the "stock-up" prices are of diapers.  Some people go the natural route and do the cloth diaper thing to save money, but frankly, the idea of that makes me sick!  I don't need nasty poo running through our washer.  Trust me, I'd want a new washer and THAT would be more expensive than diapers : )

About a week ago when I was organizing my stock pile, I decided to count up how many diapers we have, and after that little game of fun - I think I'm done... for awhile : ) We should have all we need to get us through the first few months.  Below is a list of what diapers we have, but before that list is my "stock-up" price guidelines.  It doesn't matter what promotion or coupon I have, if I can't get them this cheap - I don't get them!  (Oh, and I've gotten them cheaper than what's listed below too ; )

I carry this around with me in my coupon organizer on a little note card so I can remember exactly what my "stock-up" prices are!
