How to Save Money on Diapers
I am sure that you are just like me and don’t want to spent that kind of money purchasing diapers. Therefore, my number one tip to save money on diapers is to start early. While I was pregnant with my kids, I began purchasing diapers whenever there was a sale. I followed sales, and looked for any in-store promotions going on in my area. Oh, don’t forget to check the clearance section, I have scored diapers for under $5.00 a package.
Another great way to save money on diapers is by enrolling in rewards programs from the different diaper brands. Go on to the diaper brand’s webpage and enroll in their specific rewards program, these programs not only offer high-value coupons; which you can use when your local store has in-store promotions, but you can also turn the diapers reward points into free diapers, gift cards and more.
Another tip to save money on diapers is to purchase diapers online from such retailers as Amazon.com Different online retailers offer several diaper services, for example Amazon offers free two-day shipping, 20% off and clip-less coupons through their Amazon Mom membership. Not only do you save money, you also save a trip to the store. That’s huge when you have a newborn at home.

Some kids potty train sooner than others; therefore, watch for clues and cues that they are interested in the potty.
