the damage

Total spent at Walgreens - $6.10

(although, I truly appreciate your estimates of my ability to pinch the pennies.)

If you haven't already heard, Walgreens will no longer be carrying Luvs diapers, and so they are liquidating their stock by taking 75% off. Our Walgreens stores only carried sizes 4 & 5, and after I left on Friday, only had 3 packs of 5's left. You might want to check your Walgreens just in case they might have a few packs left. The clearance price was not marked on the shelf. I asked for a price check and rushed back to claim my (ehem) booty.

Aaron doesn't wear 4's yet, but you can believe that at $3.68 plus a few $1 off coupons ($2.68 for 52 diapers? um, YES!) I took the opportunity to stock up - and I was even able to snag a couple extra packs for some friends.

And for those of you who are thinking, "I thought the Muths used cloth," well, we do. I'd say we're a part time cloth diaperin' family. The (ehem) bottom line is, I have 7 fancy schmancy diapers. When they are all dirty, I wash them. If I run out, or have too much laundry piled up to even think about extra wash cycles, we use disposables. I'm not going to stress about it. There are other things more worthy of my energies.

Good for you! God gave you a neat blessing. Diapers are so expensive but c'est la vie. I always try to use my coupons or look for the sales. Every little bit helps:).

Woohoo! I won!

In my experience, Luvs runs small...Livvie is in a size 3 in Huggies & Pampers, but a 4 in Luvs. Maybe you've noticed that already...

Karen - have you tried the new design of Luvs with the "Bear Hug Stretch?" Those might fit differently. I hadn't noticed a size difference. I'll have to pay more attention...

Maybe the running small in Luvs is why I had liked them so much! Audrey is in size three right now, of course, I'm not sure she even weighs 20lbs!
