Cloth Diapers

OMG how are we going to pay for a wedding!

>I, the overplanner that I am, have a hard time living in the moment, and tend to freak myself out over stuff that may or may not happen in the very, very distant future.  e.g. Going from worrying about pregnancy and childbirth (while pregnant with my first child) to hyperventilating over potty training techniques, school choice, dating, drugs and *thud*.

So, after I made an amazon wishlist of the different diapers I’d like to try, I started obsessing over diaper pails, liners, wet bags, diaper liners and OMG-I’m going to have to clean solid foods poop off of these things-hysteria.  This would be followed shortly thereafter with an obsession over cloth wipes and then diaper sprayers, stay tuned.

Now, I needed to figure out how to get said diapers.  I sure as heck didn’t want to pay for any more disposables, and even though 1 cloth diaper cost the same as two packs of sposies at a good price or 2.567 packs at a really good price, the cost was hard to swallow.

Due to some new and unexciting financial woes, we really didn’t have the funds to pay for necessities, not even disposable diapers. 

My hubby decided that since he had time between work & class (for his Master’s Degree, yes I’m proud of him), he’d donate plasma.  The first week, he made $60.  $25 for each donation, and $10 for doing it twice the first week.  He gave it to me and told me to order three more BG 3.0s!  Yay!!

He chose clementine, ribbit and moonlight (I think, I get the two blue colors confused).
