Are there any mamas out there that don't know about/don't use Amazon Mom for their diaper purchases? If so, you need to join NOW!!
I think I got some fliers in the mail a couple of times and saw a few blogs about Amazon Mom back in the fall. I totally ignored them at first and I'm not sure what made me finally sit down and join. Its a free membership, and basically just saves you money (and time) in buying diapers, wipes, etc. When Wyatt was first born I was convinced that I needed a stockpile of diapers in his closet because it is just always so inconvenient to run out and buy diapers. Problem was, I'd buy about 3 boxes at a time and I'd always wind up stuck with at least 1 or 2 boxes leftover after he graduated sizes. Also? Target's return policy is horrible. I'm pretty sure I am on their 'list' of habitual returners simply because of my diaper stockpile/returns.
At the risk of sounding like an extreme couponer, I'm going to share one of my dirty little secrets with you: I LOATHE paying retail for something that I know I can buy cheaper. (Just take a look in my pantry to find 8 boxes of pasta, and a lifetime supply of coca cola products and you'll figure that one out). This is another reason Amazon Mom is so awesome. You save 15% over their price by being a member and another 15% for choosing the subscribe and save option (you can cancel that subscription with no penalty as soon as you receive your order). Comparing apples to apples, I usually pay about 16-18 cents per diaper versus the 23-25 cents I would pay at a retail store. You also don't pay sales tax or shipping.
And the BEST part? You order them and 2-3 days later there is a box of diapers on your doorstep. Ahh, it is so convenient. I've gotten to the point where when I am at Babies R' Us or somewhere like that I just cringe at the sight of people buying diapers there.
This is a long post and a lot of words to tell you - go join amazon mom. Use them to buy diapers, wipes, and sometimes even Dreft (you do have to watch those prices though - it can be cheaper at the store). If you haven't been using Amazon before, you need to now. You'll thank me, I swear!
