That La Kid

holy great bargain, batman!

on March 17, 2012

I found a great deal on All-In-Two (I think) cloth diapers on Totsy today.

Mom said that I should try out the cloth diapers and see how I feel about them.  I totally agree.  100%.  But part of me also thinks I should buy two-dozen right now because it’s such an incredible deal.

So, I compromised.  I bought 7 diapers and 6 extra liners (I’m hoping the 7 that I bought actually come with liners in them, but just in case they try to screw me, I have a back up plan.  Plus, I hear extra liners are good for overnight.)  The total retail price is about $100.  Cheap by cloth diapering standards.  These retail for $12.95 a piece, whereas the BumGenius AIOs (All-In-Ones) on my registry are about $20 a piece.  Of course, Totsy is a sale website.  They don’t sell at retail price.  So, the diapers are $8.75 a piece, with the exception of white and off white which are only $7.50!  (I spent the extra $1.25 for colors because they are so damn cute.  In hindsight, I should have just stocked up on white/off white.  It’s not like the kid’s not going to be wearing clothes over these adorable bright colors.  And either way it’s a poop sack.)

SO… the order subtotal is $77.25.

Because I have about 30 different email addresses, I signed up for Totsy and sent myself an invitation.  Once my second account made a purchase, the account that sent the invitation had a $15 credit.  Woot!  That took my diaper purchase from $77 to $62.  Sweet!

I never buy anything online without first visiting RetailMeNot.com and searching for coupons.  Wouldn’t you know it!  Found a coupon for $15 off a $60 purchase at Totsy using coupon code VIPMOM.  That’ll cover shipping and take my grand total down to $55.   Schweeeeeeet!

Just thought I’d spell out that whole procedure in case some future aunt or grandma would like to grab a couple as shower gifts or something.  They’re not as cute (or as high quality) as a BumGenius AIO, but they’re also less than half the price.  We all know that I’m all about the Benjamins.  (I guess if YOU buy them, I’m not spending the money anyway – so feel free to splurge on the diapers on my registry.)

If you sign up through http://www.totsy.com/join/woowedstiger, I think you get free shipping and I will get a $15 credit once your stuff ships.  (At that point it’ll be too late to buy more diapers, but there’s always some awesome deal over there.)  Don’t forget, promo code VIPMOM!

This whole thing has fired me up about the cloth diapers!
