Life with a new baby is filled with joy and, of course, diapers, diapers and more diapers. You’ll change diapers at least 7,000 times by the time your baby is out of them. If you use disposables, it can cost you $2500 or more over the course of your baby’s diapering career. Author Sandra Gordon should know. That’s what she shelled out--times two--when both of her daughters were little. But that was then, before the recession and the birth of the deal culture that defines shopping now. Inspired by today’s mega shopportunities and her own diaper over-spending experience, Gordon wrote Save Dollars on Diapers to help you save big on this very baby basic.
Save Dollars on Diapers features:
•The lowdown on the three basic types of diapers: Disposables, reusables (cloth) and hybrid (a mix of the two) so you’ll know what you’re buying.
•Dozens of tips to help you save big on disposables, cloth and hybrids. No matter which type of diaper you choose to use on your baby, there are lots of ways to save—even with brand-name disposables.
•Helpful information to help you choose the right type of diaper for your lifestyle.
•How to score FREE diapers. They’re out there!
And much more!

Written by Sandra Gordon, author of Save a Bundle: 50+ Ways to Save Big on Baby Gear, and 8th, 9th and 10th editions of Consumer Reports Best Baby Products, Save Dollars on Diapers dissects the diaper market to help you reduce your disposable or cloth diaper costs so that you’ll have more money to use for something else, like daycare, food or your baby’s college fund. From the author: “People ask me: ‘You can write a whole book on saving money on diapers?’ Yes, you can! There’s a lot more to saving money on diapers than you might think.”
