Re: $ How much is your stash $

Right now I have 30 prefolds and 5 covers, with a Mutt and a fleece soaker on the way. I have spend just over $200 for that stuff.

Right now we're living off one (not very big) salary, so once our initial stash was purchased, we have $20.00 a month budgeted for cloth dipes. We'll just build slowly, and if there's something I really want, I'll have to save for it. No biggie.

Re: $ How much is your stash $

I just added it all up and I've spent $382 (unless I missed something...). We still need more diapers but thats where we're at right now.

I'm building a small stash for my 3 month old neice right now also and I have spent about $40 so far for them (I'm hunting out the extra cheap stuff!).

Ashley, thats how I'm able to buy also....my dh is deployed, but I'm trying not to spend it all (its not really working though)!

I also hardly ever spend money on myself but dd is another story! I just spent $70 on two pairs of shoes for her.

Re: $ How much is your stash $

wool is my downfall. i have spent thousands on wool. on the dipes, not much for what i have hear but my old stash was probably around $1500-$1700 for those dipes. i sold a ton though. but wool, i loooooove wool. and almost all the wool i have owned has been custom. i have only bought a handfull of wool from fsot or instock. wool is lovely

its hard when you don't have that voice to tell you no! plus, usually you are the one in charge of money so as long as you know you are ok....fluffy mail is still coming to your house!

Re: $ How much is your stash $

All togehter from birth to now I would say about $2000 + !

Just in my current stash that is being used......... I would say..... around $500. Its spread pretty even through out prefolds, fitteds and wool. I have bought a lot of stuff on FSOT though so that cuts the price down by quite a bit.

Everything I have, if I had bought completely new would probably be around the $800+ range.

Around $500 but that's for two boys in diapers (and includes my latest custom) but these diapers are now on their 2&3 boy, so I've definatly gotten my $$ worth!
