As the United States unemployment reaches its highest since 1943, many families are looking for ways to save money and cut costs any way they can.
Cloth Diapers Save Money
Families with babies who need diapers know just how expensive disposable diapers can be. Plus, as people are hoarding toilet paper and diapers, it may be difficult to find your preferred diapers. Now is a great time to make the switch to cloth diapers.
To get the most bang for your buck, check out the Elemental Joy Cloth Diaper Kit. If you want to switch to full-time cloth diapers, we recommend 24 diapers changes, or 2 kits.
If you run out of diapers, there is no need to make an extra trip to the store for diapers. When you run low on cloth diapers, toss them in the laundry. No laundry machine? You can handwash cloth diapers, if necessary. If you need to handwash your diapers, a cover and insert is probably the best way to go because they will dry faster than an all-in-one diaper. Choose Elemental Joy cloth diaper covers, Flip diaper covers, or Econobum diaper covers for a quick-drying option. As an added bonus, anyone can air dry diapers to save money.
For many years, Cotton Babies has been encouraging families to keep a small stash of cloth diapers on hand in the event of a natural disaster that would prevent families from having access to disposable diapers. While a pandemic is not what we had in mind, it is true that cloth diapers can help out in times of crisis.
Besides cloth diapers, there are other disposable items you can replace with a reusable option that will save you money in the long run. Reusable wipes can replace the need for disposable wipes. You can also use flannel wipes as a replacement for tissues.
By switching to cloth diapers, you can save thousands of dollars. Even if you only switch to cloth diapers part-time, you will still save money over throwing disposable diapers into the trash.
