Cool I went on a diaper shopping spree & now I am sick about it...

I need help. I went on a diaper spending spree and now I feel sick to my stomach about it. First of all, I had fluffy mail today and received a Grovia AIO, Peachy Green AIO + hemp snap in doubler, a Kawaii Minky Pocket (this was a freebie), a Flip and an organic insert, a OS Simplex and the new Boingos.

I also have OTW right now 3 Sustainablebabyish wool soakers and some Bumby wool shorties (for winter? What am I thinking?) I think I might have more OTW that I'm forgetting.

Then TODAY I ordered 24 (!!!) BG Freetimes - 12 with aplix and 12 with snaps, 2 more Grovia AIOs, a BG Elementals to try, Sheepish Grins wool bar, Sheepish Grins liquid lanolin, 2 Babylegs (to match the wool shorties, since it's winter almost, after all), TWO CJ's Carcass Cleaner in new scents for my wipe solution, CJs BUTTer stick, 5 pkgs of RLR, 6 of the new Blueberry Bamboo flats, 2 Blueberry Coveralls, 1 Swaddlebees Capri, a dozen Zabi Baby Rainbow edge prefolds, and a BG diaper sprayer.

OMG I need to sell my entire current stash FAST or I'm going to throw up. I need help. Serious help.

I am also ordering a new 12 bin organizer for all the diapers. They need to look pretty.

What am I thinking....in 2 months I'll probably just want nothing but prefolds and covers again!

Re: I went on a diaper shopping spree & now I am sick about it...

mama mama mama... I counted 50 potential diapers that was not counting the covers. I'm all for some healthy CD splurges and if you WANT that many then that is fine.. However I'd be a mess trying to both justify and organize that much espeically if that was over a fully functional already stash. I do understand though really I do. Just decide which you love and what number you feel is sufficent and enjoy those sell off the rest the nsit back enjoy.. for a week or so untill that itch starts up again.

That does seem like a lot...did you order from places that have a good return policy?

Seems like a bit of retail therapy went on...I've done it myself! Something else I'm guilty of is loading up my cart but not pulling the trigger.

wow! That's a lot of fluff coming all at once. What's your current stash like? Do you have some things to list to offset the cost?

I think that when I pulled the trigger on the second dozen Freetimes, that is when it became completely out of hand. Not to point blame or anything, but I was totally encouraged and enabled by another mama on this board.

I have a huge stash, but these are my first AIOs. I decided that I hate pockets and don't care for fitteds, am bored with prefolds and flats, even cute ETPFs...I'm looking for easy and a change but I also bought more flats and prefolds because, well...I know that I still love them and may want to switch back and forth to keep my cloth diaper relationship spicy. So, I'm keeping my 8 Flips, all my flats and Flip organics and wool and basically selling off everything else. That way, I can use all AIOs, and if those get boring, I can padfold Flips or snappi a prefold under a Flip or Coverall.

Who am I kidding...as soon as I sell it all off I'll get on a fitted and pocket kick and the insanity will start all over again.

I hope that you really love Freetimes! Did you at least order from a place with good rewards?
