Just some system comparison

This may not be helpful to anyone, but I was playing around when I couldn't sleep last night and came up with some stash comparisons of my favorite brands. I would probably never have all one brand, but mix and match instead. In reality I just do my best to make what I like best to save money. I just figured, why not share, so here it is.

Apple Cheeks
8 shells x 2 sizes = 304
24 inserts = 216
$520

AMP

8 shells x 2 sizes = 248
24 inserts = 180
$428

gDiapers
6 gPants x 3 sizes = 324
extra liners x 2 sizes = 40
24 flip organic = 160
$524

Sustainablebabyish
12 flats x two sizes= 240
12 snapless multis = 252
10 snapless minis = 170
4 soakers x 3 sizes = 516
4 longies x 3 sizes = 780
$1,958 ($662 w/o wool)

Living Green Baby
12 fitteds x 3 sizes = 1512 (I'm pretending that I would get trimsies fitteds instead of all in ones. I've never asked if she'd do this, just imagining.)
4 soakers x 3 sizes = 288
4 pants x 3 sizes = 444
$2,244

Sprout Change
6 shells = 144
24 prefolds x 2 sizes = 292
$436

Chasing Zen
2 bloomers x 3 sizes = 216
2 skirties x 3 sizes = 252
2 capris x 3 sizes = 288
$756 (no fitteds)

Green Mountain Diapers
24 newborn workhorse = 144
24 workhorse x 3 sizes = 720
$864 (no wool)

($1,620)

One Love Diaper Co.

3 wraps x 3 sizes = 405
12 one size soakers = 168
12 flats x 3 sizes = 432
12 fitteds in 4 sizes = 1584
3 pullons in 4 sizes = 492
$3,081

Economy
6 Bummis Original Covers x 3 sizes = 180
12 imagine bamboo prefolds x 3 sizes = 78
12 gro-via prefolds x 3 sizes = 136
$394

Stacinator (you'd just have to google these and take what colors there are left)
4 covers x 3 sizes = 324
24 thirsties hemp prefolds x 2 sizes = 384
$708

Diaper Circus
6 covers x 2 sizes = 180
24 easy folds x 2 sizes = 320
$500

6 wool wraps x 2 sizes = 300
24 fitteds x 2 sizes = 864
$1164

Re: Just some system comparison

This is really neat! It is sooooo expensive when you put it down like this....

Interesting note, my mil bought sposies for my son for her to use while we are here and I told her that we didn't need them because I bought some easy cloth for her to use so she could return them. But she said, "oh it's ok, they were only $20". My first thought was, I could get a BGE second for that and still have $3 left over!

Re: Just some system comparison

Definitely you can add. Any of them are still less than disposables and can be used for more than one kid. I was just curious to see what some would be because all of the "less than $400" boards and stuff leave out a lot of good options that still save so much over disposables, and I think it is a lot more of a waste to buy a system because it is the most economical when you don't really like it, and either have to start over, or end up quitting. I wish people would invest more in a great system that is fun to stick with.

Not to mention that a sized stash will hold up longer than os because of less wear, or can be sold to size up.
