Anyway, being the Craigslisters that we are, I had been searching for Bumgenius One Size Diapers for quite sometime. This way, Tessa could use them and then we could transfer smoothly over to baby using them. Slick! Well, you don't find too many cloth diapers coming up on Craigslist (hence the patience), and if you did, they probably wouldn't be a "deal". So, you can imagine how large my eyes got when I saw an add for $5 / diaper! These usually go for anywhere b/t $18-$30. This woman had a ton she wanted to get rid of. I called her up and asked what kinds she had. You name it, she had it! (She's one of those people who can afford to try all brands to see which ones she likes best...her son grew out of all of them by the age of 8 months.) I did my research and each one looked do-able for us. They weren't all One-Size fits all, but at $5 a pop, one can be flexible.
I let this woman know that we were on our way! There, in her office, was a huge box waiting for us to dig through. I didn't even know where to start! Talk about a kid in a candy store. :)
Anyway, super long story short...I chose about 30 of the "nicest ones" (there were probably 25 left) and offered her $150. She says, "how about you take the entire box for $125." Wow. Complete blessings from Above! We walked out of there spending about $2.25 per diaper. Unbelieveable. Blessed, amazing. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!
So, today was the first day Tessa got to put on her Big Girl Underpants (we're trying to encourage her to like them) and as you can see from the picture, she's pretty proud of them! :)
We've got lots of different ones to choose from but we thought we'd show you the first ones. Again, patience sure "pays" off!
