*~*Dipe-Addicts Anonymous*~* -week 1- - Page 3

post #41 of 220
I don't know if I can do this!

I have 7 Pinheads but only 3 are fleece lined and I MUST have at least one more fleece lined (two or three if I can get my hands on them). I have 2 P-Folds but I really want 2 more and I want to try and get a size 2 FLAG. I'm looking for a really cute set from Tuesday Bear and I NEED to try a Soft Landing Stuffer.

How?? How am I supposed to do this?? I almost caved and bought a SMAJE (I can never get the acronym right on that one) crocheted wool cover tonight but luckily the legs were too big. I was so proud that I didn't email her for a custom!

*sniff* I need some support!

I'll support you, Jenn. I absolutely the size 2 RB flag diaper we have. It's awesome.

Ooops. That's not the kind of support you were wanting right now, huh? :

Hey Butterflymom... Out of curiousity, do purchases that we were PLANNING on count? That one usually works on my husband...

Oh Kathy, you're aweful! But you make me laugh!!

Here I am, wondering-are you all really serious, wondering wondering-does this mean I can nab all the AIOs on Thursday if fluffymail stocks? Could I pay for said AIOs? Could I perhaps sell some of what I have to finance aforementioned AIOs? Could it be that I have a problem?
Me, ME-are you insinuating that I have a problem? I do NOT have a problem-well, my problem is my diaper appetite is larger than my single mommy income can allow-but I HAVE to buy diapers-else poor little ds would be nakey (yeah, right-like I couldn't cover his hiney with the mountains of prefolds, stacks of pockets/wool and AIOs which are already here). Oh yeah!!! I remember my justification-grandkids! I figure I only have 4-5 years left before I am a granny (and that is conservative let me tell you!) so I NEED to start building up a stash in case of twins or triplets-yeah, that is it, buy now for grandkids to come, yeah hehe

LOL - Shan.. um my first is only 6 months old, I cannot justify diaper buying with pending grandkids! lol I need to take a 2 week break.. I think it will be healthy!
post #46 of 220
I had the perfect idea to help everybody quit! I will selflessly buy all of the size 2 AIOs from fluffymail-that way it will spare all of you, it hurts me to do this-but SOMEBODY has to be willing to make the sacrifice and I figure it ought to be me-as I don't have a problem. Now, if we can just find somebody to buy all the size 1's!

*sniff* You're so not helping! I saw an FCB AIO in real life and I really do want one and the only thing holding me back (besides my commitment not to spend) is that I can't figure out which size would be better for Nathan! lol

Holy cow, some of y'all are serious?? :LOL

Honestly, though, I have no intention of buying diapers right now. I'm buying diaper FABRIC. Totally different.

And Jenn, do you really think it would be WISE to quit buying for 2 weeks?? You could bring down the entire WAHM economy! : (You know I'm kidding, right? )

I actually am serious and I seriously don't know if I can do it! lol I just thought it would be nice to feel like I have control, to not make impulse purchases, to plan my diaper buying and to recieve what's been ordered before buying more diapers. It's impossible, isn't it??

You are silly though! Bring down the WAHM community.. I've seen some bigger spenders than me and from the sounds of it Shan will pick up my slack if I can actually do this!

Who else is actually serious about this 2 week commitment??

I'm serious, too, I really want to stop for a bit and not get so overcome with impulse buying....by the time the 2 weeks are up most of my orders that I'm waiting for will have gotten here and then I can try to evaluate my stash and see if I'm going to thin it down and sell anything I don't adore as much as others, and what I may end up buying more of.

I really want a RB Flag size 2, too. And a p-fold, thanks to Jenn's raving.... but I think if I wait awhile there will be more made, and I can have them then. I'ts not like my son will have nothing to wear in the meantime.....

And Tiffany are you guys stocking on Thursday? D'Oh!! Forget I asked, I dont' want to know!!!!!!!!! ...but are you?


ETA--a good thing about taking a break NOW is that my friend from the US is visiting next week, and I can send all my sellables to the US with her after I photo them, and then I can participate in the TP without having to tell mamas they must wait 4 weeks for their purchases or pay international shipping rates! Yippeee--maybe I can get rid of this huge garbage bag full of great fluff that just happens to not be my very favorite fluff! Then you know what I'll be doing with the paypal generated from those sales----GUILT FREE buying!!!!!

Oh my. It's going to be a looong 2 weeks.

My name is Lisa,
I dont want to get on the wagon, and you cant MAKE ME!

Hey Becky, its great to see where my beloved dipes come to life! Its Becky's operating room. Thanks for sharing! which direction is your new fab. I'll zoom in on it. :LOL :LOL

anyways......seeing you all on this wagon here, leaves more dipes for me!
You all stick to your plan k?
post #53 of 220
I am serious too but I really have doubts that I can do it. If Maria stocks tie-dyes I'll buy one, I know I will. I thought it would feel good to go to bed for a few nights without my purchases gnawing at my soul...

It would help if some fluffymail would come!!! I did just pereuse the TP where I usually go first and I saw a Berry Patch, 2 SP snap-ins, and 2 Elfin Unders and passed them right up. Go me.

I'm also worried about Thursday. I am kind of thinking I need some FCB because I only have LC dipes, no side snaps, and I only have 1 FCB cover when clearly I need at least 3 and probably 1 of the AIOs.

Plus, I really do need a fleece lined Pinhead... oh, and one of those P-folds.

Maybe we need professional help. Is anyone here a counselor?
post #54 of 220
I am off the wagon. But I did tell DH about incoming fluff. I just ordered two Ella's and am working out a LHC PUL outer.

10 dipes just isn't cutting it with a super soaker. I have to wash every day. Plus I did list all my Daisy doodles on Ebay.

After today I do have to wait for my incoming new dipes to test out. I must wait hopefully there will be some fluff tomorrow.
post #55 of 220
Well if you fall off because you are in need of more diapers then it's understandable but if you fall off because the temptation is too great.. well.. we'll be here to help you back on! lol

I too saw the Elfin Under but thankfully it's too big! I'm trying to tell myself that these places will stock again and it will be worth it to hold out.. this is not very easy!

As Angelica put it: "It's not like my son will have nothing to wear in the meantime....." again, ..that's the reason I can wait!

The places I'm seriously worried about going out of business within the next two weeks I've emailed! lol

Sheena - Why don't you email kiwi pie and ask her when the next time she'll stock tye dyed broadcloth is? If she says it may be 3-6 months or never then you have license to buy one now!

Angelica - I'm totally jealous of your income to come! I'm keeping everything I have now unless it doesn't work for us for some reason so my trading sales are WAY down! lol

Anyway, I'm awake and with new resolve today to make this happen!! Also, I've decided that straight trades involving no money are exempt from this commitment!

Isn't this known as enabling??? ROTFLMAO!

LMAO!!!:LOL You guys are just TOOOOO funny!
I personally should buy another thing... but I cannot help myself. And so, since I am aware of both my personal addiction, and the fact that I probably will not be able to stop any time soon... I am going to support all of those WAHMs while you all take your break from supporting your addictions.
I would hate for Fluffymail, or LHC, or Darling Diapers.. oh! and I just got a pinheads and think I need another to really decide if I love them...
Oh,... and I HAVE to have another Celtic Wool and my custom at BaaBaaBottoms is almost finished...
So you see, I can support these WAHMs while you all save your money and test your resolved...cause mine is already SHOT!

Me too. One of my big dumb Great Danes wiped her butt on the carpet and I got so cranky cleaning it up I was 2 seconds away from a reward diaper. Now I just feel crabby and unsatisfied.

Keep this bumped!!! I got here and it wasn't on the first page and I freaked. I had to wade through all these threads about great diapers to find it.
