Adam nurses roughly 400 times a night and despite my best efforts, I couldn’t create a cloth diaper combination that worked all night. The word on the baby message boards was that there was a certain brand of night time diaper that was AWESOME and when I found them at a relatively inexpensive price, I gave them a try. Indeed, they do a great job and until Adam is night weaned, I’ll keep using them.
I buy them for $5.67 for 18 and only use them at night so we’re paying about $10 a month. Imagine my couponing-heart skipping a beat when I saw the latest Smart Source flyer had a $3 coupon. I swooned and jumped onto SmartCanucks.ca coupon forum and offered up anything on my trading list for these coupons. Someone answered right away and I offered some free product coupons I have for things we would never eat and she’s sending me 10! That should (dear Lord, I HOPE) see us through night weaning… for less than half price!
I haven’t been trading the coupons for long but done with some strategy, you can save money. We don’t use formula, diapers (usually), few beauty products, cleaning products or feminine hygiene products (I’ve been using a Diva Cup for years) so I have a lot of coupons that are useless to me. I trade for food products mostly – cereal, bread, canned soups, tuna, granola bars. It costs a stamp but if you trade enough coupons – my latest trade I’m getting $30 worth! – it’s a good deal.
Are you couponing?
