"some things are worth paying more for...."

This is what I saw on the front page of yahoo news this morning. An article that told about a few families that got out of debt, and the different ways they saved money. One guy wrote:

"My wife learned some things are worth paying more for after trying to use cloth diapers -- which most people use as burp rags -- pinned inside training pants with plastic pants over them for our two kids, all so that she could reuse the diapers and not spend $60 a month on Pull-ups. As a result they both got horrible rashes, so we switched to a cheaper brand of regular diapers."


What a way to promote CD's!

That is because Gerber continues to call those stupid burp rags "cloth diapers".

Some things are worth paying more for ... like a BG Elemental or a GMD prefold!

That's both disappointing and frustrating!

I honestly thought he was going to say that they'd tried the cheapie (Gerber) PFs, then realized it's worth it to spend a little more on diapers to get good ones... but, ugh. *sigh* Some people can't be bothered with actually researching, unfortunately.
