Warehouse Prices of Diapers & Wipes plus Coupons Bring HUGE Savings! See how and where!
Wa Wa Wa…the baby aisle makes me want to cry! Prices of diapers and wipes can drain a mom’s wallet in no time. Researching the prices is essential for a mom who wants to be smart and on budget!
Last week I attended a blogger event at a local BJ’s Wholesale. Armed with the skepticism that buying in bulk doesn’t always mean saving money, I arrived early to do some price research. I hit the baby goods aisle 1st. Using a calculator and my smart phone I researched what alternate, discount shopping sites (i.e. Amazon.com & Diapers.com) to see who had the best price for diapers and wipes. I was in shock to see that what I had thought was the best deal…Amazon.com through their Amazon Mom program…was not. BJ’s prices for the exact large box of size 3 diapers that I had delivered at my house days before was a whopping $6.00 cheaper! It was tough to swallow. I felt a bit defeated. Next came the wipes. I’ve learned from BabyCheapskate.com that 2¢ a wipe is the price to get. I looked at a name brand, did the calculation of price vs. the number of wipes in the box and it was the magic price of 2¢! Now, here’s where the “Holy crap, I must buy my baby goods here!” moment set in…these already better than the competitor prices hadn’t yet taken into account manufacturer’s coupons! You see, at BJ’s Wholesale, unlike their wholesale competitor, you can use all the coupons your cut out of the paper or printed. So the price per diaper and price per wipe would be EVEN LOWER if I had one of the easy to come by coupons for the brand name diapers or wipes!
