Cloth Diapers: Week Eighteen

Not much to report besides my love of cloth diapers. Joanna's bum is still a genius and I can still report zero blowouts. We haven't made a new purchase of diapers or CD accessories. We did give two to my sister-in-law for little Micah to use when he joins us in April. I'm excited that Joanna will have a cousin in cloth!


I haven't been figuring wipes into our savings because moms with disposables use disposable wipes as well. However, I'm now officially adjusting the savings to $20 a week based on a friend's disposable diaper purchases. Her child is close in age and size to Joanna so I'm using them as a control.  (Wow, my mom would be so proud that I'm using a Science term!) They go through about 1 big pack a week so if they purchased their diapers without coupons, they spend $20 a week. 


So with 4 weeks in CD at $20 savings each week, we add $80 to our savings and return on investment:



Total Personal Investment: $190
Savings To Date: $314
Return On Investment: + $124


On a money saving note, we're still saving money each week even with using formula. Without CDing, it would be more difficult to afford quality formula for Joanna. Thanks to our CD savings and coupons from dear friends, we're only spending $15 a week on formula.
