Since moving to Montgomery, I've scored some pretty good deals. On Saturday, I got a pair of white ankle-length Gap jeans from Goodwill for $3.99 (please don't judge). Today I bought school supplies for "free" at CVS. Much more exciting, however, is the 5-pack of Kushies Ultra All-In-One diapers that I found at Wal-Mart on the clearance aisle. I had not tried these diapers, but I had heard of them and I was curious about how they had ended up at on SALE at WAL-MART. So, I threw them in the cart. They were the toddler size (22-45 pounds) so they would fit Cady until she was potty-trained and it's always nice to have a few extra diapers in the rotation. They didn't have a price on them though so Chad and I decided we'd just wait and see how much they were when we checked out. Then we'd make a game time decision. "How much were they?" you ask. Well, I'll tell you. They rang up for a whopping....
$10.20!!! Yes, you read that correctly. I paid approximately $2.25 a diaper (even when you factor in Montgomery's exhorbitent 10% sales tax). These bad boys sell on Wal-Mart's website for $59.98. You do the math. "Do you want them?" Um, yes please. I've been so excited about these diapers. I figured even if they weren't the best fit for Cady, they'd be worth $2.25 a piece. So far they've worked great. We even used one overnight one night (with an extra soaker in it) with no problems. All in all, a TERRIFIC find.
Soooo, to celebrate this great find and to encourage more of you to give cloth diapers a try, I'm giving one of my sweet deal diapers away. That's right, I'm sharing the love :-) The diaper up for grabs is a lovely green diaper that's appropriate for a girl or a boy. It's been washed once in Allen's Natural detergent, but it has never been worn. As I mentioned above, it is the toddler size, which says it fits children that are 22-45 pounds. (You just thought I was done harassing all of you with cloth diaper talk, didn't you? ;-)).
In all seriousness, even if you only used one cloth diaper a day, it would have a positive environmental impact. Even if your child attends a daycare that refuses to use cloth, you can use cloth at night and on the weekends. Every little bit helps. It might also allow your baby's tush a little break. Plus, cloth diapers are pretty cute these days!

(By the way, I have yet to see any more of these in the store! My best guess is that someone ordered them online and then brought them back to the store. I guess the store didn't figure they could sell them and marked them down...or maybe it was a pricing error, who knows?!?!)
