If I ever have buyer's remorse, I just return the item(s) as soon as it arrives. Good luck.

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

I don't feel so bad about my co-op craze I have gone through (and continue to fight). I have 125 diapers on their way to me, not including pre-folds and what I have on hand. Let us not even speak of baby-carriers...now that is a bank breaker!

I love whomever said about loading their cart and not "pulling the trigger". I am BAD about that. LOL

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!
If you can afford it I don't see a problem wanna buy me some?

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

She posted last week she didn't have any spending money until this week. If your finances are feast or famine, it sends some red flags up for me. As long as she can afford it, it doesn't matter, but not having any money last week, and then over spending this week, makes me wonder if she can afford it. KWIM?

I'm guilty of babycarrier excess. Not financially, I just have more than one baby could ever use. I won't ask you if you don't ask me.

If it isn't going to cause upset in your marrage and you can afford it, no problem!

You should keep a days worth of each type of catagorty of diaper you like (AIOs, pfs, flats etc) that way you can have a change when you want it and not have to spent a buch of time and money selling and buying.

I agree...if u can afford it no big deal...BUT unless u plan on making the freetimes the main bulk of your stash I would prob return/cancel 12 of them if possible. I had serious issues with diaper excess with my 4 year old...I spent thousands on expensive fitteds and wool......i' m really embarrased how crazy I got(and I really didn't have the $$$$ for it) This time I'm only spending cash I have and PP from selling.....I still have a hard time keeping the numbers down ...have approx 65 aio/pockets...then a couple dozen flats/prefolds I don't count LOL....i'd say I have spent about $500--$600 on the current stash.....way better than the money I spent with my older DD and I have a variety I like. I feel your pain tho mama!!! Its hard to stop the cycle of wanting to try the next great diaper...or resist great sales!

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

She also started an ISO post looking to buy/trade for some more SB flat diapers just a few minutes after she started this post If purchasing all this made her sick to her stomach and have remorse, then why just a few minutes later would she start a post to buy/trade for more?

Absolutely not trying to target this momma, at all! But looks like maybe she does have a serious issue that could affect her family in a negative way. Hopefully she'll update this post today, and we can continue to offer her real help and support

It seems crazy but it does become a real addiction/obsession for some. I've been there....like I said I spent ridiculous amount of money before on Cds.....even when I knew I shouldn't I might have just spent a ton of $$$$ on something to turn around and decide I REALLY love something else so I better buy a bunch more of that..... then a new sale comes out or raves about a certain diaper come out and I would buy more. It doesn't make sense, but it happens!
