When I realized we were no longer shelling out for those giant boxes of diapers at the mega store, I almost considered buying Mama a new pair of shoes. I could have ... and some pretty sexy ones for that matter.
If you're putting off the potty business because you just can't find the time, this might change your mind:
No more diapers to buy.
No more wipes.
No more diaper pail refills.
Even if you're cloth diapering, you can cut your electric bill/water bill for the reduction in constant washing.
Now let's hit the numbers.
According to CostHelper.com, that's $60 to $85 a month for disposable diapers.
Or 50 cents to $1 per load of laundry (and how many loads are you doing?).
True, you now have to buy extra toilet paper -- because they won't master the whole "grab a few sheets" trick for another 14 years. But considering toilet paper costs the average person around $50 a year, even doubling that puts you hundreds of dollars ahead.
Yes, I said hundreds.
Makes you want to potty train, doesn't it?
Have you sped up your potty training efforts to cut household costs?
