How to Build a Diaper Stash.
Week 4: Where and how do you get what you want on a budget (i.e. buying used, making your own, swapping, etc.).
I am always on the look out for DEALS when it comes to cloth diapers. My first cloth diaper purchase was at a local diaper store. The diapers I bought weren't on sale, but they were one of the least expensive diapers available that met my needs. That retailer has a consignment program, she accepts gently used cloth diapers to resell & the original owner gets a portion of the sale price. I bought most of my original covers from the consignment basket.

Online, I LOVE to browse all the cloth diaper retailers. I have found quite a few great clearance deals online. Many of those diapers were brands that I had drooled over, but couldn't see paying full price for.....what's even better is that most of the time when I buy online, I am also able to find free shipping deals. Overtime, I realized that buying online also saved me money because I didn't have to pay the nearly 10% local sales tax.

I also keep an eye out in the #clothdiapers search on twitter for giveaways. I've won quite a few diapers & discovered some brands that work better than I ever thought they would. My first experience with Gro Baby was from winning one, I now own 3.
