Stockpiling Saturday: Diaper Stockpile – When do I stop?
I’m a sucker for cheap diapers. I don’t know what I’ll do when my son is out of diapers! What will I get for cheap then??? Which brings me to my question – With 650 diapers stockpiled, when do I stop?? Our little “Bug” is 18 months old. I see us starting to potty train after Christmas. I don’t really plan on using Pull-ups. I don’t particularly like them. But this isn’t a parenting blog, so I will leave my opinions on that to myself.
Back to the stockpile. I have no idea how many diapers I use in a week or month. I always have two packs open at a time because I use Pampers at night and other brands during the day. We also have to send diapers to daycare so it’s not like I can say, I opened this pack on Monday and this many diapers lasted until Thursday. Doesn’t work like that for us. So I haven’t tried keeping up. My best estimate is 7-9 diapers a day. By that estimate, we have 90+ days worth of diapers just in our basement. Not to count the 5-7 days worth in the diaper cabinet and at daycare.
So I know we have enough to get us until mid-August even if I don’t buy anymore. So, and this may be a rhetorical question, but do I buy if I see a good deal or do I wait a few months before buying more? Feel free to chime in on the comments section. :)
