Re: How much have you spent and saved?
I would say we only actually saved a few hundred at most. I think #2 we will save alot more because of stuff to reuse but still not a ton. If we did to sposies we would use all natural ones so because of that we would have been at the higher end of sposie price. I spent a fair amount mostly because we do velcro and it needs to be replaced. I didn't do buying sprees that you see people do here. Finding trainers has been tough for us that has added alot of cost.
I have prefolds and inserts to reuse an some diapers that are still good. But most of the velcro items have already been sold. I thought we'd have lots of inserts to reuse (and we do have some) but they are starting to get very worn and probably won't last a full nother kid. I bet we will save money on trainers when we get there, I don't have to try as much types and these will probably be reusable (no velcro, not used as long ect)
