Another reason why I love cloth

For various reaons, money is about to really tight. So tight, that some bills won't get paid and other optional items like cell phones will probably be voluntarily cut off. But.....

I don't have to worry about diapers!

That is such a huge relief. Just do a load of laundry and voila! Clean diapers!

I couldn't imagine having to buy disposible diapers right now. **whew!**

So sorry for the financial problems. I understand where you're coming from, believe me!

And I agree, it is wonderful that we don't have to run to the store twice a week to buy sposies!

I know, it feels so great knowing we never have to buy sposies I'm sorry about your financial probs. Don't worry, things always have a way of turning around.

Re: Another reason why I love cloth

gotta say i TOTALLY agree with you!! we have been there (our cells were off for 2.5wks) and its a huge huge relief just knowing that i dont have to scrape together $10+ for diapers not to mention the gas money....just gotta wash them!

the other thing too is that ds is a bf baby so no formula(this would be free bc of WIC) or bottles or liners...so we save a bundle there also!!

Re: Another reason why I love cloth

Thanks for the support. The financial woes should be temporary. I am a teacher and my salary will pick back up in the fall. Hoping DH finds a better paying job before then!

Another thing I thought about. Although there will not be any money in the budget to buy additional diapers, I can always sell diapers to buy new/new-to-me diapers. Can't do that with sposies!

And as far as the formula thing... My DD was born in April last year, so we were in a slightly better, but similiar situation. I was determined to and succeeded at b******, because I knew I wouldn't be able to afford formula.

I know what you mean momma!
