With a newborn that goes through roughly ten diapers per day, I'm now constantly on the lookout for diaper deals. Before our baby was born, I did some research on diaper saving, and as you might guess, cloth diapers were usually the cheapest option. For this very reason, Janssen is considering using cloth diapers. I, however, cannot bring myself to do that, so I'm looking for the next cheapest option with disposable diapers.
In my mom's post about Sam's Club and Costo, she went through the vast number of items that are cheaper to buy at these wholesale stores. And what do you know, diapers are no different.
I did a little comparison of Huggies Snug & Dry diapers between a wholesale store, a drugstore, an online store, and a grocery store -- check out the difference in cost:
Sam's Club: 264 diapers/box @ $37.98 ($0.14/diaper)
Walgreens: 50 diapers/box @ $12.49 ($0.25/diaper)
Diapers.com: 192 diapers/box @ $31.99 ($5 off for new customers) ($0.16/diaper, not including shipping)
Target Superstore: 156 diapers/box @ $36.99 ($0.24/diaper)
As you can see, the wholesale stores are the way to go. Not only do you get a bigger box with more diapers so you make less trips to the store, but you also get the very cheapest diapers. This also doesn't include coupons. If you sign up on facebook or huggies.com, you'll receive coupons in your email and the mail, which will save you even more money!
So before you pick up your diapers at the grocery store just because it's convenient, do a little research and see how much you can save by buying in bulk at the wholesale stores.
Anyone else know of great diaper deals??
