$1,000 to play with

Okay, so, I have $1,000 extra sent to us from a family member, a very sweet family member. I really need some more diapers. REALLY. I have 3 BG OS, 3 HH OS (that if I had good feedback ratings and someone would buy I'd sell in a heartbeat), 2 Thirsties AIO's, one BG AIO, and 3 FB Petite Toddler. I have 12 Kissaluv size 2's that work great, but I really dislike fitteds and know I wouldn't use a fitted diaper. I'm a pocket and AIO girl. I plan to buy a snap press to convert all my velcro diapers to snaps (except the FBs). SO, what should I get? I really need about 12 more diapers, but I've tried everything mass produced. DS is 2 1/2. We are trying to have another baby, but, well, 2 years later and an RE and it just hasn't happened yet. SO, I want DS to have cute stuff now. I'm tired of buying stuff purposely so that another child can use them in the future even if the baby was a she. I want some cute boy stuff. I'm a pretty good seamstress and with the snap press, should I just make some AIO's with cute prints on the outside and a hidden layer of PUL, just buy some mass produced stuff in the interest of being positive, or what? OR should I try to feel the fitted love? I mean Kissaluvs might not be the best thing and maybe I'd feel more love from others? I dunno. I'll take any suggestions or just what you would do it you had some moulah to play with.

Wow, for $1000 you really could get an awesome stash. I'll have to think about what I'd do...

You could try some semi-custom Preston's Pants.

Try making your own and see if that helps with the fitteds thing if you really want to try them and making your own is fun too but yeah there are better fitteds out there than Kissaluvs for sure! If I had that money.... well, I'd be buying stuff for the baby and paying bills (I'm making my own diapers for him so I don't have to worry about that)

I'd get some Green Acre Designs, these are super trim diapers and you can get them embroidered if you can get a spot and you can find them on the fsot.
they are my fav diaper..again..lol
I always loved Snap-ez, GADS and FuzziFannies, you should try all 3 and see what you like.
you can get a good stash with 1/2 of what you have available to spend, $500 is more than enough. look for free shipping stores, % off, some offer 10 % off your order, some places send free samples, free wipes. just look around and have fun shopping.

If I had that kind of money I'd do all custom embroidered Chunky Monkeys.

Whatever you decide, remember to post pics after!

You should at least try 1 Piddle Poddles OBV OS fitted, I did not care for Kissaluvs sz 2. The PP will show you fitted love I agree w/ previous posters on GAD's and Chunky Monkey. I also like Painted Patootie and Sumbums. Maybe you should splurge on a Blueberry minky OS? Have fun!!
