review: www.diapers.com

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times. Babies are expensive. Sure, they enhance your life in more ways than you can count. They also (and I say this filled with love for my little darling) deplete your bank account. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme... but I will say that we are very aware of how much baby-related items cost, especially those things we now buy routinely. Like diapers. And wipes. And formula. And...

Until recently, we've been shopping at our local Buy Buy Baby store. Not only is it convenient (just 3 blocks away), but Husband can now cross its threshold without breaking into hives. No small feat, let me tell you. The store is, shall we say, overwhelming. Our current method is divide and conquer, getting us in and out of there as fast as possible. Typically it's a painless exercise, unless a herd of pregnant women have been unleashed in the aisles, followed only by white-knuckled men gripping registry scanners as if their lives depended on it. We smile for a moment remembering those moments of excitement and trepidation before making a beeline for the Pampers section.

Buy Buy Baby coupons routinely show up in our mailbox, making essential purchases fairly reasonable... even though I assumed with a little research we could find a better deal out there. Enter www.diapers.com. Months ago, we randomly found Baby S' crib on this site. I knew exactly what style and brand I wanted, so this was one of the few decisions I found easy to make (I'll be the first to admit my decision-making skills leave a lot to be desired). After researching online, the site gave us the best deal on the Jenny Lind antique-style white crib and Sealy mattress I had my eye on. Did I mention free shipping? Nice. The crib arrived safe and sound and after Husband cursed his way through the instruction manual, future Baby S' was all set in the sleeping department. We've been very pleased with it so far and have had no complaints from the Little One.

Ever since our initial purchase, we've gotten a fair amount of spam from www.diapers.com, relating to the obvious, um, diapers that they sell. I finally decided to take the bait after receiving a $10 coupon to try on my first diaper order. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a coupon/bargain/deal (a topic I'm quite certain I'll blog about more in the future). With free shipping and delivery to our door within 24 hours, I ordered a jumbo size box of Pampers (184 total) and refill wipes (360 count). Final cost for both? $43.04. Not too shabby, considering that same box of Pampers at the Triple B costs $40.99 on its own. Looks as though I'll be going back to this site in the future. Buy Buy Baby, watch your back!

Don't forget about good old Amazon.com for diapers, too. Not nearly the amount of spam and, as with everything else they sell, spend $25 or more and shipping is free.

hi ellen, I use diapers.com alll the time. I thought I sent you an invite but I think I had the wrong address... anywho... I use amazon.com as well. but sometimes amazon doesn't have the formula I need. both have great prices and free shipping... so much more for your money!
