Anyone that knows me knows that I love a bargain. I’m pretty good about not buying something just because it’s cheap unless I’ll actually use it. This morning I was reading Baby Cheapskate and I found out that Walgreens was clearancing out a brand of diapers called Luvs. Sometimes stores decide not to continue stocking an item and in order to get rid . of it they’ll mark it down for a deep discount. Folks, if you know anyone that is using baby diapers here in the US and you live close to a Walgreens, run to your nearest store! I got the mega pack, which is 52 diapers, for just $3.79 each. That’s about 8 cents per diaper which is just about the cheapest you can get. They’re not the premium diapers, like Huggies or Pampers, but they’re a national brand.
I ended up going to two different stores to see if I could get more. They only had size 4 and 5, which is not what my kids are wearing right now, but I figure that I’ve got lots of storage space and for that kind of savings I’m happy to fill up the closet. At the first store I bought out what they had, which was 8 packages. The second store only had two packages, but they also had Pampers training pants (like Pullups) marked down to $2.79 a package, which is just over 10 cents each. Cutie isn’t using those yet but I’ll store them until I need them.
I just had a look at my receipts and at the first store I spent $39.29 (I bought a couple other things) and saved $93.09. At the second store I spent $14.29 and saved $61.20. Can’t beat that!
