Re: Do you have a simple / minimal diaper stash?

I want to simplify mine but I'm afraid to sell anything and want it later!

We have:
-24 GMD WHs
-1 Poppy Fields
-13 BG 4.0s
-4 GroVia AIOs
-1 Bottombumpers AIO
-3 ME Sandy's
-5 Flip covers
-2 Disanas
-3 Flip organics
-3 Wool soakers

Plus:
12 nb prefolds
36 small prefolds
not in rotation

I'm wanting prefolds again but don't need them and will not be happy with the clutter.

3 Simplex

3 BGEs

and then 3 Joeybunz hemp inserts.

And yes, I realize my thing with 3s. I'm a leeeettle OCD about diaper numbers.
OMG I am so OCD about myt diaper numbers! Must be 3, 6, 12 or 18. I thought I was the only one!

Re: Do you have a simple / minimal diaper stash?

Thanks for all the inspiration, mamas :-)

I always feel like I want one kind of diaper and I really dislike one-offs, so I try one of something, and if I don't love something enough to buy a whole stash (which I never do), I sell it off. But now I'm really starting to like the idea of 3 or 4 of a few different kinds... intriguing... I'm going to mull that over now :-)

I do have more than I need. Part of it is sizing, and part of it is that prefolds are easiest to buy in dozens. Twelve isn't enough, so that means I end up with 24 in each size. Plus, it gives me a little bit more variety (do I feel like prefolds today or flats?). Also, my stash is being used between 3 kids right now (though 2 only at night), and I'll be up to 4 when baby gets here. So, I think I could pare down maybe 12 prefolds and 5 RBF and still be in pretty good shape, but I haven't felt "overstashed" so I haven't been compelled to do that yet :-)

Re: Do you have a simple / minimal diaper stash?

Over the last 6 months or so, I have destashed about a hundred diapers for a variety of reasons, but the bottom line was that I had 2 in diapers and a limited amount of space to hold the "working" stash. I rearranged it over and over again, trying to make it all work.

The aha moment came when I realized I had more diapers than we needed and I forced myself to pare back to a stash that:

A. fit into the allotted space
B. was easy to maintain
C. would last all the way through potty training both kids currently in diapers
D. offered just enough variety to change things up if I wanted to
E. was easy enough for hubby to understand without a tutorial.

I ended up with:

10 BGE's
6 GMD yellows
12 GMD browns
10 Flip Organics
9 shared covers

And they share a pile of flats and covers for night time, which are stored where we dress for bedtime.

I have a bunch of flats in storage if the urge strikes and I know I could pare back more, but I vowed that this stash MUST last until the littlest on PT's, so I kept a mini stash of all of my favorites and am only allowing myself to purchase a few covers as the NEED arises. I'm having a hard time fighting off the urge to buy the new Flip flat, though......

Here's the stash....

I wish I could just own a dozen diapers either FB Elites or BGEs w/fleece liners and call it a day like Young House Love. So simple & streamlined! I wash almost nightly anyhow just because I don't like things sitting around.
I should just do it!

Re: Do you have a simple / minimal diaper stash?

I have pared down a lot, and might do so even more eventually.
Right now we have:
12 large GMD prefolds (passed down from my 4 year old)
9 large Sweet Pea prefolds (got in a trade)
7 random medium fitteds (rarely get used but I can't seem to destash )
10 or so AIOs that we use when we go out or if someone watches her overnight
6 night time fitteds (just larges that I added a booster to)
7 or so pul covers
a few me-made wool covers

I also have 14 gmd flats in storage in case I run out of prefolds or need them for any reason.
I try to use only prefolds during the day unless I know we are going to be out of the house for a while.

Re: Do you have a simple / minimal diaper stash?

Mine is finally very simple... I figured out that I hate having a little of this and a little of that... I'm almost done selling and once I'm finished buying I will have:

15 BG 4.0 (Capri size 2 inserts for stuffing)
12 Small Sandy fitted
12 Large Sandy fitted - for when LO is bigger, but they work for coverless time now
3 MEAF covers (Med and M/L for now will sell and size up as needed)

6 Thirsties Fab doublers
6 Med Babykicks doublers
2 Small Babykicks doublers

I have a few extra Capri inserts ... they don't seem to sell very well on FSOT so I may cut some of these in half to use for inserts in the large Sandys (I would get one stay dry and one regular insert from each capri insert) Also have 12 large flats that I was thinking about selling but I'm going to keep them and use them for non-diaper purposes...
