Kristin, that's when I signed onto the mile long elbee list, too, and my number is approaching, so yours should be too. You can still join the wagon and follow through with past commitments, I think. And joining the wagon because you're tired of the merry-go-round of buying and selling constantly is a valid reason! We'd love your company!

What should my senior title be?

Thanks Angelica. I'm joining then. I need a senior title too. And a new hobby instead of diapers.

So for those who have to sell instead of just stop buying, what's your goal to get your stash down to? What exactly is a reasonable number of diapers to have? I've lost all touch with a "reasonable stash", though I'd like to get back there soon! And as for what goes, it's so hard. Some days I like fitteds, some days AIOs/pockets and still other days trifolds in wraps. So do I keep some of each or just simplify down to one system?!? Who would have ever guessed it would be so hard to part with DIAPERS?!?

You're right, there's nothing wrong with these diapers. They just don't work for us. They should be on someone's bum, not just sitting around my house longing for a bum to cuddle.

Ahh..I feel better already!

Kristin, I wish I knew what was reasonable. I think 30 fitteds and 10 woolies, for me, would be more than plenty. A few AIOs or pockets for others to use, too. But I have 4 dozen fitteds that I am not interested in parting with at any price, because I stalked hard for them! And another 15 fitteds coming from LB (elbee) this summer. What do I do? Why is my mind so twisted?

Oh, and I liked my DDDDC too. I also liked the 'alls fair in love and hyenadom' because it's so true.

Hmmmmm....we need to brainstorm senior titles, Kristin!

See, this is what it's all about.

I have around 24-28 fitteds for each girl (have to do an updated count), 3 soaker shorts each, 5-8 wool covers each, 5-8 soakers each, 15 AIOs/pockets each. Definitely too much! But, Ella is quickly outgrowing her dipes and the girls will be wearing the same size in no time. So, a lot of what I listed will be sold soon (oh - I forgot my prefolds - about 12 total )

ETA: A REASONABLE amount is probably much less. :LOL

I'm on the wagon, too. We aren't in financial straits or anything, it's just that I know we have too many diapers. I filled the diaper drawers, I had a load on the bed that I folded, and then I found a load in the dryer that I had forgotten about. I have about half a dozen headed back to me after I sent them out for repair, and then I have a few prefolds from my TDD custom order on their way... Ack! :

I've been blue lately, too, and nothing has been picking me up. I think I'm just worn down from work - I've been running on fumes for the past several weeks. Work got out last Friday, but I negotiated to come in four days between this and next week. I am starting to get a home business going, too, and I have a couple of awesome ladies I'm working with. It's fun and it's what I would much rather be doing, so I'm getting a bit of energy back from doing it.

Anwyn has been awesome, and so has dh. My house is a disaster; I think if I could get it cleaned I would feel better at home, yk? Sometimes when you have a messy house, you can't help but feel messy yourself. My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks... maybe I will treat myself to a Merry Maid or something.

Anyway, that turned into a longer ramble than I meant. :LOL I guess I was just trying to say that I haven't felt like much of anything, much less diaper shopping!

Jumpin' on!!
Same dilemma... I have quite a few FCB size 2's that are just SITTING there because I worked really hard to get them. Do I save them for later? Yes. And I should never have tried an SOS - they would be so wonderful when we hit the next size...

My stash is definitely not huge - if anything, my excess is cpf's believe it or not. But! I need to stay on a diaper diet or we'll be in trouble!

It really is the thrill of the stalk that is sooo addicting for me. It's like a game to see if you can beat the crowd and get something. :

Paypal was an EVIL invention - waay too easy to buy buy buy

And butterflymom - I'm lovin' Jedi Wool Hyena as a senior title. I cracked up everytime I saw your dddc.

hannahmom, why thank you--Michelle was the genius behind that one, although I guess it was a direct quote....: It means I certainly know my wool!

I suppose I should remember that I am in the process of meeting with some local knitting ladies to see if they want to pool their energies into stocking a WAHM store of my own creation..... I would love to get a chance to pet new wool fluff regularly, without having to buy it! (even if it's just for a few moments, I could still be 'a part of it'.)

This is always so much fun to watch.....I love these threads

OMG, Michelle, I am on for exactly the reasons you said... well, except work. But I am burnt out at home from high needs baby-care and I don't even have the energy to look at diapers let alone shop. I have 2 things coming and a tester and that's it. Sigh. My house is destroyed too.

I'm sorry, Amy, I know how rough I feel and I don't wish it on anyone else. I hope you get your energy back soon.

Well, being on the wagon is pretty easy when you only have $2.84 in your checking account and a big fat goose egg in your paypal. :LOL Although there are a few people I really want to fairy and payday is Friday.

If I were in the position to pare down, I think a reasonable number of dipes is 36 per kid plus a dozen prefolds or whatever for back up to buy you time if you get sick or your washer breaks.

My math:

If you change about every hour except naps and night, that's, at most, about twelve a day. Multiply by three, since the experts at Born to Love say that its best not to go more than three days without laundering, unless you want to rinse everything out thoroughly, um....right.

For me, I'd just be happy to have 24 per kid plus back up, since I don't mind laundering every two days. (since I don't want to have to have TWO diaper pails in my small apartment.) Which means I still don't have enough dipes.Sigh! But, the wagon is a good place to be. Pass the chocolate!

Ahhh yes the house ! That's me too~ I'm not the only one
But remember you need to enjoy your babies/kids while they're around! You'll have all the time in the world to clean once they're gone~My DH brought this to my attention just last night~~SO TRUE~~ use this time to love, nuture you babies~but that still doesn't help the messy house........... BABY STEPS (((sigh))) :LOL

My 9 month old tried his best to help me scrub the bathroom and do the laundry today. Thought watching me vacuum was a hoot, too!

He also helped me get the 5 loads of laundry that needed to be done going by starting the day off with pooping so much it leaked out the dipe and onto the sheets! He and I are a cleaning duo to be reckoned with.

Cool! According to your math I'm not overboard.
