Holy Crap Diapers are Expensive
Just a quick note to say I think we may go broke buying diapers "when the kid comes" as F says. I was in Target today doing some household shopping, and I said to myself, let's just take a quick walk through the baby aisle and see how much diapers are going to run us. HOLY CRAP. I found a 36 pack of diapers (pampers) on sale for 8.50, but even on sale or with a coupon, that's only enough diapers for about 4 days! So even with sales or coupons, name brand diapers are going to run us about 70 a month. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but come on, I'm in grad school! It's not like I rake in the big ones! Thank god we don't have to pay for daycare. I think our budget will have to revisted "when the kid comes."
