For me? No, I could care less. I switched to CDing SOULY for the health of my child. but that might just be me? I wasnt interested in the "saving the earth" part or the "saving money" part or any other part there might be except it was the only thing that would save my poor child's behind.
I do think some people go overboard with their purchases, but that is their business. It is like an addiction that you dont realize you have until you are out of it. I have an addiction like that with bags, any kind of bag too. Purses, diaperbags, wallet bags, makeup bags, shopping bags. Just about any kind of bag I probably own 50 of, well I use to I mean. I realized I had an obsession and I had to get away from it and now I still have a few too many bags, say 6 diaper bags when i probably only really need 2, but Ive gotten over it.
I was just thinking about this earlier. Like 20 minutes ago actually. i was filling DS's cubby with prefolds. His cubby is usually full of fitteds but he has these weird bumps on his thighs that I think may be from hard serging. I realized that with as many prefolds and flats as I have(17 prefolds 12flats) I could diaper him in just those and be fine. I thought about how much more money I could have saved(I have spent 300 and probably only would have spent 100 if all I did was prefolds as diapers). But then I thought about how much easier it is to snap on a fitted diaper that isnt bulky and doesnt slip down his non existant hips.
I think it is a personal choice and we should just leave eachother alone about it. Im sure there is something that you do that pisses people off and gets them asking "isnt ... suppose to be about saving ... or stopping ..." or something. We cant all always be happy, it just doesnt work that way.
Now go buy you a nice pair of knitted wool pants and have a slice of fried apple pie
