Lightbulb new to cloth diapering/ old to saving money

hi everone
i would just like to take a moment and introduce myself and my situation. My name is katie and i am a mommy of 3 precious babies 8yr Boy 4yr G and newborn G.i have been an avid thrift,consigmen, yard sale shopper for oh as long as i can remeber. but that was more for the excitement and find than necessity.You see i said WAS. I know i am not alone when i say that over the past couple of years i have learned many ways to cut back. The really jard part is when you already dont buy anything new when you find out you have to cut back even more! now here is the story, like i said i have 3 kids so when i found out i was pregnant with my third i knew exactly what to expect and knew as long as i looked early i could get anything i needed cheap and that remodel i had been begging my husband to START would now have to be COMPLETED in 8 months. still i wasnt worried b/c both of my other pregnancys(winter) had been a walk in the park. lol did i mention i live in alabama and my due date was 8/ for the bad news... im a working mom, and ended up going on bed rest at 21 weeks hospitalized 6 times w 2 surgeries on my kidneys the baby and i are fine now so ill save that story for later. our already frugal way of life had just lost 1/2 its funds. i no longer just bought used things. i tried to reuse the things we alredy have or trade/barter. its amazing how when you add a cool word like recycle kids are all about their upcycled items. it was like a light came on in my brain and while my friends and family made a crack or two about hoarders i think now they are jealous. i dont through anything away with ou first thinking. "what can i reuse on that. soup cans into stoage containers, taking the hardware off an old purse and turning it into the cutest passy holder and my favorite was an ugly wooden bunkbed transformed into a queen sized doll house loft bed with a slide. ok back on point sorry i just get so excited when i think of all the money ive saved!!! well i had several things of disposable diapers given to us and since i had a c section i knew between the pain of that and breastfeeding my lil one i wouldnt feel like doing laundry for a while. now where DS comes in yesterda as i opened my last pack i cringed at the thought of buying more and i know that cloth can be pricey too. so what do i do? ding ding ding find a site lke this! now i need your help i had no clue there we so many options. here is what i need convienient newborn size 6 lbs girly HELP PLEASE
oh and sorry if this is all over the place with a ton of gramatical errors its 3:30 am and im kind of out of it
