Cloth vs Disposables Cost Comparison

Have you ever wondered how much you are actually spending on diapers? Or what about wipes?
In today's video, we're comparing the cost of disposable and cloth diapers. 


When I saw that Thirsties had a savings calculator for comparing the costs of diapers-
I knew I was going to have to give it a try!


Not only can you see your savings from their recommended packages, but you can also do a custom package- picking and choosing- and see how much you will save birth to potty training.



If you're in the market for diapers than I highly recommend trying out the calculator and really thinking over where your money will be best spent! 


If your looking for a great place to buy cloth diapers, Kelly's Closet is great- they are my go-to. They've always got coupon codes and have the full line of Thirsties diapers- my fave brand. :)  If you've got any more cloth-related questions that I didn't cover in today's video, please check out my other Cloth Diapering 101 lessons in my Playlist, or leave a comment on the video!
