Real Diaper Week: Diapering on a Budget

Cloth diapering can be done on a frugal budget. Instead of me going into detail on frugal cloth diapering, I'm going to give you two great articles that do a much better job that me: Frugal Cloth Diapering, It All Started with a Snappi and How to Cloth Diaper Your Baby for only $50.

Instead I am going to tell you why we chose to cloth diaper. We chose to cloth diaper primarily for the amount of money we will save throughout the diapering years. We plan to have at least 2 kids which means we will save approximately $3,500!!! Our diapers can be reused for each child and will last many years if they are taken care of (which of course they are!). We can also sell our diapers when we are finished with them. The best thing about cloth diapers for resale is that they hold their value. We will be able to resell our diapers for just a few dollars less per diaper than we paid for them!

Cloth diapering is a great way to save money and the environment. Do your research ahead of time to decide what style diapers you want. If you can spend a little more money per diaper you will have more options. If you are on a super tight budget check out covers and prefolds.

Don't forget to find giveaways as well or when you place orders, most places have days you can get a free diaper just for ordering. My favorite retailer is Abby's Lane. They have giveaways all the time. Many you do not have to purchase to win. Their blog, Cloth That Counts, is also great to follow for giveaways and great diapering news.
