Stocking up for Baby!

Ok so some of ya'll are going to be really disappointed with me. I have decided I'm not going to try to cloth diaper baby Isaac right from day one. I know! I know! I'm pathetic lol. But honestly I just have no idea what it's going to be like with a 2.5 year old and a newborn and I really just don't want to bite off more than I can chew right away. I may have him and it may not be too much of an adjustment and decide to give it a try pretty quickly. But I'm not going to go in thinking I absolutely have to cloth diaper him right from the start. So I am slowly but surely stocking up on disposable diapers and wipes for little man. Of course, using my coupons, but there's another trick to it get them at an ultimate low price! (Like FREE!)  Here's how!

So if your not familiar, a lot of the bigger drug stores have rewards programs where you can purchase certain things and get a certain $ amount back in the form of the stores rewards. Walgreens has Register Rewards, Rite Aid has +UP buck, and CVS has ECBs (Extra Care Bucks). These are the 3 main stores I shop at. All 3 of these stores usually have some pretty decent sales on diapers, that usually consist of receiving their rewards if you buy a certain kind or a certain amount.

So for example, recently at Right Aid they had a deal where if you bought 2 Jumbo Size packs of Pampers at $9.50 each you would receive $4 in +UP rewards. They also had a deal that week where if you bought a Gillete Proglide Razor for $9.99 you received $5 +UP rewards. So I took advantage of both of those deals and did this:

(2) Pampers Swaddlers Jumbo Pack (36 count) @ $9.50ea
Used 2 $2/1 Pampers diapers
 = $15.00

(1) Gillete Proglide Razor  @ $9.99
Used $4/1 Gillete Proglide

Used $5 +UP Rewards I received from a previous transaction.

Total =$15.99 - $9 UP Rewards I got back = $6.99 for whole transaction!! 

If you divide that total up between the three items its less than $3 an item! And the best part is I have $9 to get another pack of diapers for almost free!

There's deals like this all the time at all three of these stores! I got some super cheap wipes at Walgreens just the other day too! If your in the south like me check out Southern Savers each week for the best diaper deals around the south. Another great blog that does the weekly diaper deals is Just Married with Coupons! Both of these sites will tell you what the deals are with what coupons to use and how cheap you can get the diapers for! All you have to do is go to the store armed with the right coupons! It's such a great way to get diapers and other baby products for super cheap!


  1. don't feel badly! it takes a couple of months to get into the swing of things with a new one and then who knows? maybe you'll cloth diaper, but don't feel guilty....
    whatever it takes for mommy to make it through the day...

  2. Stopping by from Put A Little Umbrella In Your Drink for the Alexa Hop!

    Have a great day!
