Hi! I am new here. DH and I have always considered ourselves minimalists (much to my MIL's disappointment...not only does she like stuff, she like expensive stuff)! :-)
I am happy to see that there is a group of moms here who get me...I too experience feelings of anxiety and stress when there is too much stuff in my living space.
Anyway, that brings me to my question. I am due next month...our fourth (and final) baby. I have been agonizing about cloth diapering this time around. I always used disposables with our others but it always really bothered me seeing what I was adding to the landfills every week.
So, I finally realized today that part of my problem is the clutter issue with cloth diapers! I feel like with disposables I have one package of diapers and a package of wipes and it is neat and tidy and efficient. Whenever I research cloth all I see (besides some darn cute diapers) is more stuff....pre-folds+ covers + snappis + laundry wet bags + special detergent + homemade wipes etc. I get so flustered thinking of all the "stuff" AND I feel like I should have started on cloth a couple babies ago and that at this point it isn't really practical that I am going to have all this stuff around that was used for a very short amount of time.
So, all that to say, how many of you on here cloth diapered vs. disposable and how did that fit into your minimalist lifestyle?
