6 Easy Ways to Save Money on Diapers
How do you save money on diapers?
This week, I saved $25.00 on two large boxes of diapers at my favorite store. This put a mega smile on my face!
Unless you are using cloth diapers, the amount of money you’ll spend on disposable ones will make your head spin. Why not try a few easy methods to save money?
For those struggling economically, diapers can truly put a major dent in one’s pocket. This includes the average family wanting to save …
Read The Diaper Dilemma and you’ll be stunned to learn that 30% of mothers in the United States are struggling to provide clean diapers for their little ones, often stretching the use of disposable diapers or reusing them! (Khazan, 2015)
Diapers are not cheap. That’s why it’s always great to find deals that put a smile on YOUR face. Any bit of savings will make a difference!
I typically use mobile apps that offer coupons/rewards, but I also bargain hunt.
Here are some of my favorite EASY ways to save.
- Coupons and Apps. I’ve saved money by using the Cartwheel app and other apps. Right now, my favorite brand of diapers is $2.00 off on the Cartwheel app. That’s a coupon I love. It’s free to sign up for the app and it might save you some money. You can also go “old school” and print coupons out. Also, if you visit a store like Target, you might see a coupon that you can receive through text or get coupons sent via mail. (Note: there are other apps you might enjoy like Ibotta).
- Rewards/Loyalty programs. I absolutely love Pampers Baby Dry (Buy Here), so I put their app on my phone to receive rewards. It’s free and I receive perks, so it’s a win-win in my opinion. (That rhymed!).
- Hunt Deals Online. For me, Target is my go-to place because I swear they have the best deals and their diapers are often dollars cheaper (I swear I don’t work for them! It’s just my favorite store right now). Another way to hunt deals? Go to google, type in your choice of diapers and compare prices from leading stores.
- Buy off-brand. Try out different types of diapers including off-brand ones. If they work for your family, they can save you a whole lot more. If your budget is tight, try a store brand like Costco (annual membership required though). I’m trying a more affordable brand, Luvs, this month to see how I like it.
- Baby Registry. For you pregnant mama’s gearing up for baby, sign up for a couple of registries to reap rewards. I got cash back and tons of coupons (i.e. compare deals at Amazon, Babies R Us, and Target).
- Amazon Mom. If you are a Prime Member, sign up for Amazon Mom (free as a Prime member) and get 20% off diapers and other products. You are already paying for Prime membership, so you might as well get something extra from it as a mom or parent!
This week, I was really happy to have saved as much as I did. How was this possible?
Here’s what I did while shopping at Target:
-$10.00 gift card received for $50.00 in baby purchases (store deal).
-$10.00 gift card received for $50.00 in baby purchases (coupon in mail).
-$5.00 off from Cartwheel App scanned at register. (Example: $2.00 Pampers Cruisers, $2.00 off Pampers Baby Dry, and addition 5-15% discounts on Pampers products).
That’s how I saved approximately $25.00! Now I have $20.00 to spend with gift cards.
Afterward, I logged my rewards into my Pampers App.
How do you save money on diapers?
I would love to learn from any mom who has tips to share. I also totally admire people who can do extreme couponing! I’m still baffled by their abilities to save. If I ever find out how they do it, I’ll be sure to share.
I hope this post gave you some ideas on how to save a few bucks. For me, that $25.00 means I can buy other baby goods like wipes (which I happened to see a $1.50 cash back reward from Ibotta! Woo hoo!)
