Baby on the Way = Back to Diaper Changing

Our baby is due in July and that means we get to return to the stage of life of “diaper changing”…

Wahoo!
Yippee!
I love cleaning poop!

Not really.

What I dislike even more than that is paying for the expensive poop receptacles (diapers).
What I LOVE is finding a super awesome deal on diapers with very little effort!!!
I don’t coupon anymore and just came upon this deal at Walgreens a couple of weeks ago, so I was beyond excited!

I paid $100 for 40 packages of premium jumbo packs of diapers!  $2.50/pack

Oh yeah! :)

Apples to Apples: Why paying retail is a sin in my book!

So we found out last week that we have a BABY GIRL on the way!

You know what that means…

an excuse to shop ‘til I drop in search of adorable little bargains!!!

I was so impressed with my baby girl haul that I made shopping the JBF Tulsa Children’s Consignment Sale that I decided to do a detailed blog post of just how awesome I did and why it is a travesty to pay retail… especially for children’s items!

So here goes:

I went to Wal-Mart to “investigate” and see just what $115.75 would buy for my baby… below are the results.

All the items are Wal-Mart Brand (we know the quality of that brand right?!)

6 Outfits

9 Onesies

5 Sleepers

3 pr socks

3 dresses

for $115.75
