Plus he knows how those fluffy packages make me smile! He thinks it's "cute".

I'm with you. Have my own PP account, DH has no clue at all. He isn't what I would call "online savvy". Doesn't know even how to do online banking or pay bills that way!! I do it all!!

So he truly has no clue how much I spend on dipes, though he keeps seeing different types on the change table. It's a bad, bad situation. I haven't made any new purchases in almost 4 days - this is truly a miracle. (okay, I'm lying, I have one last one pending...) I literally am stopping myself from peeking in the FSOT because I will buy more pockets. I've had to allot some space in the dressers to make room for the burgeoning diaper stash - well over 100 pieces, I'd say. Ridiculous!!

Soooo, don't let me buy anymore dipes if I get in touch with you!!!

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

DH has no idea. I would tell him if he asked, but he really doesn't care - I have a "budget" for running the household, and as long as I spend less on cloth than I would on sposies, he's happy.

We sposie'd our twins, and were CONSTANTLY buying diapers - $! So now, he never has to shell out $10 for a pack of dipes when he's picking up milk, and we're happy. I try to sell some when my "container" is too full of fluff . . . he doesn't change dipes often enough to notice what's new and what's not. (He WOULD, but I try to get there first - I really don't mind, and I like laundry done *my* way.)

He's proud of my economical home management. (And he has no idea of my growing addiction . . . NOBODY WARNED ME ABOUT THIS!)

I feel guilty too! I dk why... he spends waaayyy more money on other bs than I do diapers.... but we have a few more than we need... and those starbunz have not come yet.... hes pretty supportive all in all though... and proud of me for making this happen...

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

Dh is fine with it because I make my own, however when I add a few more here and there he does tell me we already have enough LOL. (mostly because he know how much time I put into them and does not want me to wast my time either

Now fabric is a whole nother story..... I think I have a fabric problem.... Is 11 bins of fabric too much? (large bins)

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

This is such a funny thread. I love it...
My DH knows about fluffy mail and calls it that. He knows have a lot coming and going and recognizes new diapers and always ask how much they cost. In fact the other day I got a new sez pocket and he was like, how much was that? I told him and he didn't blink an eye. He is pretty well conditioned to how much they cost, I just don't think he realizes how many we really have!

He knows all about it. Doesn't seem to mind and allows me a couple of diapers a week (depending on the cash flow ) We are still in the process of building our stash, but we have enough now, and I keep buying...I'm addicted!
