Having a new baby on the way reminds me of the fact that we buy way too many “cute” things for the new arrival instead of focusing on the neccessities. We don’t need 50 onezies or 5 million socks. However, buying a pack of diapers from the same store in different sizes and brands each time you go will help you not have to absorb the cost all at once when the baby gets here.
Why the same store, different sizes, and different brands? Each baby is different, so different diapers will work for each baby. You want different sizes because, I promise, the little tike will not stay the same size. But buying from the same store will ensure that you only have to exchange once when you find the right brand for the new baby.
I buy a pack of diapers each week. A different size each week.
- Week 1 of the month – size one or 2
- Week 2 – size 3
- Week 3 – size 4
- Week 4 – wipes
The system works for me becuase at this time, I am not having to buy all the essentials that come with a new born and it will save you a quick run to the store when you run out without knowing it.
Just a tip!
