Why do I feel like I am CONSTANTLY buying diapers...

I buy in bulk. I buy formula by the cases... always get the 3 max. I buy the largest boxes of diapers. I buy the largest boxes of wipes. Yet, I feel like every WEEK I run out of something. How is that possible??

Yes, I give half of everything to the sitter...maybe she goes through things faster? I don't buy everything at the same time.

So what do you do... do you do a shopping that includes diapers, wipes, and formula every week, every two weeks? Or do you buy whenever you are close to running out of one, then you buy all three anyway to keep stock?

I shop every week for diapers and formula - a little less for wipes. I do the same as you - buy in bulk but half goes to the sitter. I really think that's why I feel like I'm always buying it.

Your insurance company pays for your formula? That's great! Right now DD is on Nutramigen by Enfamil - It costs me 100.00 a week! Chat Icon

Costco doesn't carry the ones I use. For diapers OR wipes. But I'm considering trying the Kirkland brand for diapers...

Re: Why do I feel like I am CONSTANTLY buying diapers...

I used to buy about 3 LARGE boxes of diapers at a time. WOuld last maybe a month.. WOuld buy also several bags of wipes to get me though about a month..
Formula I would buy maybe 20 or so at a time to last me about 2 weeks...

Then when I would be doing regular food shopping or whatever every week, I would sometimes buy to replenish what I used.. but I never actually would have to run out specifically to get anything
