$ How much is your stash $

Okay mamas...I want to know how much you've got invested in CD. I want a big stash but already have $350 spent and barely what most of you have. Share

Re: $ How much is your stash $

I think it's around $1,700 right now. I need to update my spreadsheet. That's the current worth of my stash. I don't want to know how much money I've lost in buying/selling, though.

I second the nanipoos! I just got one the other day! I wish I knew about them befoer I wasted tons of money!!! I was one of the ones that voted$1000-1500. I only planned on spending $400 total. I have bought so many things I don't like. I strated cd to save money at first now its a hobbie/addiction. I am only cd 2 lo's.

I wish I could sell almost everything and start over

Find a wahm who is starting out - order in bulk, wahms are usually fast to give good discounts and free shipping if you order a lot from them - it helps them get their name and product out there and you can score big

Re: $ How much is your stash $

I chose $200 but its probably closer to $250. I bought a bunch of BG and some TFF's from the swap, and bought most the rest in a package deal with a discount and free shipping so I saved a bit there. Have about 17 diapers (and I passed a few smalls onto a friend), which works out perfectly. It forces me to wash at least every 2nd or 3rd day, so I don't get stinkies.
Here's what we have/had:
3 Fb's, 1HP, and 1 BP all smalls we gave to a friend
5 HHOS
1HH medium
6 BG2.0s
1 chunky monkey
2 minky medium pockets made by a friend
2 Thirsties Fab fitteds inmedium with covers

Re: $ How much is your stash $

I'm guessing mine is around $1000, I am including fabric and notions since I sew tons, but not my sewing machine or snap press, and this is for 2 kids. I have newborns - larges in the house right now. Considering we'd be spending $15 per week per child on disposables = $120 a month + the additional cost for trash pick up, I think it's a great BARGAIN to CD. And it's my hobby.
