I have everything I could ever want as far as diapering. I am ON that wagon as of yesterday and I need to STAY on! I had a very rough financial crisis last week that has put me behind a bit (meaning I cannot spend any of my extra monthly money because it MUST go to bills) and I have a very expensive European vacation I need to save for!!! Ok well, it's not that bad but I know I will want to spend a ton of fun money while I am there and especially get more of that Finnish chocolate!
I am content with the quantity and "brands" I have. and don't need any more! PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!! LOL

I will jump back on. I do have some up coming purchases that I am commited to. A Valor Kids order and Elbee but the Elbee is very far off.

I have huge bag of dipes that don't work for us that will be hitting the TP when we get back from vacation.

I so need to stop obsessing about diapers. We don't have an overload according to MamaTT but we do have enough.

I could really get a lot done around the house during the day if I wasn't trolling the net looking at diapers. Then I could have my evenings free to knit.

I definately need some support. I look at diapers for a pick-me-up too.

I'm actually perpetually dragging behind the wagon, kicking and screaming against my will. :
I wish I could afford every bit of fluff I see and desire but my funds, guilty conscience and practicality won't allow me too.
I generally make one purchase a month that would equal what I would spend on sposies. My plan was to eventually stop once I have sufficient stash but I don't see myself being able to do that. I have the need to scratch the fluff itch now and again even if it's in small bits.
I absolutely HAVE to get over my Ebay (or TP) anxiety and start putting stuff up for sale to generate some paypal funds. Then I could do some guiltfree fluff purchases.

Don't I know it, girl. *sigh*
I know the solution! Have more babies! You'll first go through the obsessive "I have to have new diapers for the newborn" craze, then you'll be so sleep deprived and tired from chasing around a toddler and a newborn that suddenly your buying will dwindle....no time unless its 2 am...

Trust me... its happening to me.

I also feel the extreme need for SIMPLICITY now. Gotta go sell some stuff on the TP....

Are you and my husband working in kahoots? Seriously he is all about the ten kids dream... : Like THAT's gonna happen.

I would love to TTC actually but I don't have AF yet (breastfeedin' on demand to my hungery EBF'd 9 month old!).


And Christina, don't you worry about saving money for Finnish chocolate, we can provide that. Just work on getting the plane ticket in order!!

Hey, what do you guys think of a senior title that alludes to the fact that I am an American mommy in Finland.... but in a cute way. maybe ex-pat at the North Pole, or foreign men can lure you away ....? :LOL


She who left Hawaii to live in Finland...? (actually I was living in Boston when I decided to move to Finland but I spent 4 months lingering with relatives in Hawaii before actually getting on the plane to move here, so kinda.....)

well, i am very much on the wagon right now as i am forced to be . I used to be able to spend most of my small paychecks on whatever i wanted, but no more. Actually it is very freeing not to always be figuring out what to spend on. When i sell something, or get the odd bit of cash here and there, i know what i want and how to get it (my tastes are simple and i gravitate to more 'obscure' wahms ) if i need it.

I like to have about 30 fitteds in rotation - if you have too few, then you really cannot resell them very well, as they are too worn. I also like to have several AIOs that are easy for Grammy or what have you. Nylon pull on pants are my staple cover.

You'd better watch out! Blonde/blue eyed guys with accents can be very tempting.... although I don't find the Finnish accent too awesome.

maybe.... How did I end up in Finland?

:LOL

Hmmm how about "Finnish Jedi Wool Hyena"?

You just can't let that one go - it was too funny
post #60 of 167
Yep, me too. Today was my last purchase for a good long while and I have been selling on ebay like crazy, although not just diapers, actually anything that isnt nailed down in my house.

I need to spend some money on myself. Every month we put money for clothing in our budget and split it amongst the five of us. Every time, I spend mine on diapers. I need some new clothes. Eliza does not need any more diapers and does not need any more clothes. I need a good haircut and the colour done again, I need some new makeup.

I'm also tired of lying about where the money went.

I've felt that madness creeping in lately, where you just get obsessed with finding the perfect diaper. It really doesnt exist. If I stop now, I may break even by the time she's toilet trained. That's fine by me, but I dont want to spend MORE than I would have on disposables.

I'm keeping our 18 (19?) Lucys Hope Chest contours - they're perfect with a PUL cover under jeans and the like, and our daycare lady uses them very easily with Bumkins covers - leak free in less than perfect changing circumstances. I've got 3 fitted's and a cover coming from Lucys Hope Chest and 6 fitted's with 2 matching covers coming from Crystals Cloth as well as 2 of her hemp diapers for night - they're awesome. I'll have a total of about 36 daytime diapers in the form of contours/fitteds and 5 night time diapers and a wool and a windpro cover - 4 bumkins covers for daycare and 5 or so fun printed PUL ones for my usage. More than enough.
