I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

a good price?

So I had some coupons for diapers the other day. And me, being me, stocked up. And I wondered, what's a good price for diapers? With my coupons I got a 152 count of Huggies size 1 for about the same price as generic brand, which worked out to $0.16 per diaper. I also got some size 2s (also Huggies) for $0.12 per diaper (I don't remember how this compared to generic). I wanted more 1s (obviously!) but they didn't have any in the kind/size I needed for my coupons, so I did get some 2s. I also got some Huggies wipes which were $0.02 each after my coupons. Are these good deals? What do you pay?


  1. Do you think I have EVER figured out how much per diaper I pay? You know me. BUT, I will tell you that I actually remember the price and count of the easy ups I bought and with a coupon for $2.00 off they were $0.28 each. But, when I did buy diapers, I used luvs, and they come with a $1.00 off coupon in the box (usually). I think they were like $15.00 for 72? something like that (.20 cents) But my advice is-do not buy a bunch of them until you find what you like. I had problems with Huggies leaking, pampers are WAY expensive and they had a butt burning rash chemical thing going on, and the parents choice were too soggy and sagged really badly. So, there you have it.

  2. Hmm, I wish I had a good answer for you, but I just buy whatever is cheapest at the particular store and at the particular time. I've never figured out how many cents per diaper. Although I typically buy Luvs or store brand (Walmart brand is much better than Target brand, which is weird...) for Elijah, but I get Pampers or Huggies for Zoe since she has explosions. I just make a point to get them on sale or with coupons, and always buy in bulk :-P

  3. Thanks for the advice, ladies. I've purchased two boxes of diapers so far and already I hate it. It's so overwhelming to stand in that diaper aisle; there are way too many choices!
