Who Uses PFs...

and doesnt use pins or snappis. I heard of some mamas just like tri folding the pf into a cover kinda like an AI2? I just bought some covers and thirsties (holy cheapness) on a complete whim last night. We do all pockets/AIO/AI2s now and Im looking for a cheap way to diaper around the house. Is this a good method (please say yes lol) and it seems to be DH friendly (no pins/snappis/etc...)

ive never used pins or snappis
we just trifold the prefold inside the diaper and they stay put really well.

As long as you have a trim fitting cover, it works great I actually fold in thirds then fold the front down for my boy so it's about the length of the cover and thwack him in it You can also do a bikini twist-like fold just inside the cover. Experiment.. it's fun

We trifold our premiums in Proraps (hated my BSWW, but that's a different thread, LOL). We use other stuff, too, but that's our staple. DH can use them just fine, and apparently the other day while I was at a Dr. appointment my mom did it, too, LOL. I was impressed. The only problem we have with them is that once he poops the cover has to be washed, too, not reused - since the poop gets on the cover.
