And if I count the hours I wear a baby a day up through age 3 or longer, it's pennies a day or less! Just like ppl pay $1000 for a bugaboo stroller.

The last part hit it exactly for me. I don't use a stroller and so an expensive carrier is my stroller. I wear my kids constantly and into toddlerhood. In fact DS is 4 and still gets worn when we need to walk alot or if it is really busy because he gets nervous (sensory issues). People don't think much of a 2-300 dollar stroller and my carrier serves that purpose.

I also like variety for different situations and temperatures. I still covet a woven wrap ( a nice one) but right now I just have 2 moby style wraps (1 really stretchy, one just sorta stretchy), a gauze wrap that I made, 2 Mai tai's, a maya wrap ring sling, and the ergo.

The only one I paid full price for was the ergo.
The only time you should look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don't look in your neighbor's bowl to see if you have as much as them.
