Save Money on Diapers

Diapers are expensive and they also create a ton of trash. I just filled up three bags last week. But momtoamo only throws out two bags of trash a month—including diapers—for her entire family of five. One of the reasons? She uses cloth diapers. I don't think I can get my trash down to two bags a month, but it does get me thinking about cloth diapers.


Cafe Sheri in the Home & Garden Buzz interviewed momtoamo as well as aydens_mom620 and KayMMIV about their green efforts and they all use cloth diapers and say that not only are they eco-friendly, but they're budget-friendly too.

Saving trash and money sounds really good to me, but I'm worried about the poopiness (read: potentially disgusting) factor. It turns out that both aydens_mom620 and KayMMIV had the same fears about cleaning poo and that cloth diapers are easier than either of them thought. They even give tips on how to wash cloth diapers.

If you're thinking of switching to cloth, check out Cafe Sheri's complete "I Got Green" interview with them.
