Re: Holy Cow Batman! Didn't realize the price hike would apply to HH!!

I think prices on everything are going up--$1 is pretty reasonable in my opinion.

My thought is that it is likely that high gas prices are contributing to higher costs on many consumer goods since materials have to be transported, which uses gas.

I think it's fine to increase prices. That's what happens in this economy! We can't buy things for the same price forever...

Plus, it's nice that you can choose to purchase an insert and are not forced to.

yeap between that and inflation .....
lots of diapers are going up but at least there are still prefolds .... at around$2ish a diaper an increase is a little easier to budget for

now if those salaries will just start rising too

Re: Holy Cow Batman! Didn't realize the price hike would apply to HH!!

I'm sorry but I had to. The shipping costs are hitting everyone right now with the price of gas and we are in the most expensive zone

We did also make some package prices as someone else mentioned so that people will get discounts when they buy our pockets with our stuffins or micro-fiber. Of course the more you buy the more the discount but it was set pretty fairly I think for everyone.

You can still buy you HH without any insert if you want to. I know everyone has their own preference to inserts so we will not make you buy both of them at all. Promise

This was just one of those necessary increases and it has been a long long time since we have had one even though most of our supplies have gone up.

Re: Holy Cow Batman! Didn't realize the price hike would apply to HH!!

sounds very reasonable to me. I'm surprised the price stayed as low as it was for as long as it was. I wish FB would do the same type of thing that HH is doing with allowing for no insert or hemp insert in addition to the standard insert. The package deals are nice too! I think most people understand that eventually prices have to go up on things with the rising costs of materials, gas, etc. It is easier to take when it goes up just a little at a time. $1 is a lot better than $3

Re: Holy Cow Batman! Didn't realize the price hike would apply to HH!!

Ok and not just as a HH retailer as a HH user. I started using HH's in 2003, they were 13.95 then about 3 months after I started using them they were raised to 14.95. So I think 3 years between raises is a great thing.

I really like how you are all understanding of this.

Shoot, a pack of Pampers is $17.97!

And I can't use them on 3 kids and then re-sell 'em, either! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Happy Heiny's - used, new, solids, prints - LOVE 'EM!

Definitely a reasonable increase! Like that there is an option with and without inserts too

I am not at all upset about the HH price increase.
Amen!!
