If you are a parent of a little one, you know that diapers are something you just can’t get around purchasing. However, there are some things you can do to save money on your purchase. Here are a few ideas:
Amazon may seem like a last resort when it comes to saving money on diapers, but it is a great resource! You can join Amazon Moms which will save you up to 20% off of diapers, wipes and other baby products. Your orders will always ship for free and you can even set them up for regular, automatic shipping intervals. The really great thing about Amazon is that they often offer clipless coupons, which can increase your savings. Best of all, you never have to leave home to get your diapers! Right now, new members can get a free $10 credit for trying out the service! Learn about that here.
It may seem like extra work, but a few minutes of clipping can add up! Right now, in fact, you can find printable coupons for Pampers products online. Just print, clip and save! Make sure you watch the store for a deal, which means you save more when you stack it with your coupon!
Try a Store Brand.
Often, the store brands are the same as name brands — just in different packaging. It might be worth it to purchase a smaller package to see how they work. Make sure that they do not leak and that your child doesn’t have any reaction to the product. These brands can be as much as 10 – 25% less expensive than the name brand counterparts — but work just as well!
Watch the sales.
Each week, we share this week’s best diaper deals. You can quickly find these lists from our main menu — or by checking out this page.
When you get ready to buy, check the per unit price. It might be less expensive to purchase 2 smaller packages rather than one big one. Sometimes these prices are printed right on the store shelf, but if not, you can quickly do the math. If you happen to have a coupon to save $1 off of each smaller package you can sometimes come out ahead and pay less per diaper.
When I had 2 kids in diapers, we decided to go with cloth. We had to spend $250 – $350 up front, but we recovered that cost within 6 months of our kids being in diapers. You can check out this post about cloth diapers to learn more.
