Diaper Cost Spreadsheet

So we will have two kids under our roof in November. That means 2x the daycare. Daycare is super expensive so I am trying to start being cheap frugal and start eliminating unnecessary spending and to start saving up.

We are trying to get Max out of diapers. He fully understands the diaper situation and doesn’t care for the potty right now. We are still working on it, I even had a dream last night that he went potty…love those awesome dreams!

I decided to create a spreadsheet after I heard that someone actually loved Parent’s Choice diapers (Walmart). I am always skeptical of cheap diapers but my kiddo does not have sensitive skin and the only diapers I REFUSE to buy are Pampers (something about that mesh).

btw – this is for size 4


So I went and bought Diapers at Walmart! There’s a little money to save right there!

I am also going to start buying a pack of size 1/2 diapers to stock up for November!

There is a great deal going on at Target, if you buy 2 large packs of Up&Up diapers you get a $25 giftcard. Great deal and diapers end up costing around 13 cents (someone told me). I just can’t afford two $37.99 packs of diapers (192 count)

We have an $80 kiddo budget per month and Max needs some wipes and some new shirts so this one will have to be passed on right now. Like I need a giftcard to Target…. you don’t go there and not buy more than $100 worth of goodies….

Now some pictures of Max this week…

Long time no see

It has been forever. So Sorry! When I found out I was pregnant the world basically changed! I was super sick at the start. Nausea without vomiting is no joke. I had no energy and couldn’t eat. I finally got Diclegis – which is FDA approved for Pregnant people – it is basically Unisom and B6. That made a worlds of difference but didn’t change the fact that my energy level was at 0%.

I am now 14 weeks along and am starting to feel better energy wise. I still take Diclegis – only because I am scared not to. I still get sick to my stomach at night so I know it is not over.

You may not want to come to our house anytime soon. It is a zoo.

These past 3 months in a nut shell…

– Went to a wedding, found out i was pregnant the next day!

– Came home from wedding to find out Presley was sick, took him to emergency vet in Boerne and found out Presley had a UTI and has crystals – diet change for the rest of his life $280 later

– Found out baby is due 11/17!

–  Had to go back to the vet because somehow Fleas got in our house and caused Presley to lick everything… another $280 spent

– Max running around like a mad man most of the time and getting bumps and bruises all over the place


Our Annoucement!

Max has become obsessed with Curious George – he will try to take him everywhere

Max was sick the other day. I saw on camera that he was getting some love. Our teachers are great. She had him go get his blankey and then put it over him and rocked him. We left work early to go grab him and he stayed home the next day with a low grade fever.

He is brand new today!
