Reader needs help: Best prices & stores for diaper deals
Posted May 16, 2013
One of our readers, Renae, is expecting twins in about 3 weeks! How exciting! She has some questions about the best places to get diapers these days and the best price for diapers. Actually, there are a number of moms here on this blog who are expecting babies in the next 3 months so this information should be helpful to many of them. Please help these moms save some big bucks on a such a big expense!
Here is Renae's request for help:
"Hello my name is Renae and I am expecting twins 1st week of June. I have a 3 yr old already at home. Once the boys are born I will be a full time stay at home mom. I am currently at home with my 3yr old due to being taken out of work for the pregnancy.
I was wondering if you could do a special on diapers and wipes. I have looked several different places to try to find the best price. What is a good price per diaper and is it better to buy the store brand or go to the warehouses like BJ's? Now that I am a SAHM and we are living on one income I have shifted my couponing back into high gear or at least trying to."
Thanks for any help you can offer to Renae!
Back when my girls were in diapers (10 years ago!), I often found my best buys at the drug stores using a combination of sales, coupons and rewards (like ECB's).
These days I am seeing the best prices for diapers in the ads somewhere around $6.50 or less for a jumbo pack after coupons and rewards. If you can find them for $5 or less per jumbo pack, that is probably a great stock up price. I have also read about a number of moms finding good buys through Amazon's diaper program. If anyone here uses it, please share your experience and the prices you pay for those diapers.
