We can do it ladies! Baby steps....

Today is Monday, February 23rd, 2004, and the goal for us is to do our very mommy bests to freeze our diapering related expenditures for the next 14 days. If you can make it until midnight, March 7th, that's close enough to 2 weeks, and you can honestly look yourself in the mirror and say, "I can stop whenever I want to." ....which I'm not sure is true for ME yet....!

*Refer to this thread whenever you want to share a triumphant moment where you stared a very cute item in the face (well on your computer screen) and you did NOT click 'add to cart' and 'proceed to check out'.

*Refer to this thread if you fall off the wagon and need support getting back on. Let's help each other!!!!

No No don't do it...Take your had off the mouse, back away from the computer.

You can do this. If you can indeed do it for 2 weeks then you prove you DO NOT have a problem and you can go on spending:LOL

I will join up. My DH said we need to agree to purchases before hand. So that should make it a little easier. He is sort of hard to convince we need diapers.

But I did contact Becky at LHC for some custom AIO and Lovey Bums for two covers. But I also only have 10 diapers we are currently using oh and 3 that can't be used out of the house. But that is definately not enough. I do have 3 on order.

I need some self control here.

You KNOW you are addicted when you say "I have to wash and hang MY diapers today." rather than "I have to wash the baby's diapers today."

I gotta tell ya girls..this ain't gonna work. Even though my son has been potty trained for almost 6months...I scour the sites looking for cute dipes. I touch my screen and caress the pictures of the dipes I no longer can use. My heart skips a beat as I move on the next diaper site..only to have my heart race once more!
Every once in a while..I catch myself..thinking about selling all those diapers I used on him for 2 years..then..when no one is looking..I put a diaper on my son who is almost 3. He looks at me like crazy and says *Undies MOM Undies!*
I feel your pain girls..I feel your pain....
On the brighter side..if you really get that pain..come to my house..or look at my sewing room and while you chant *I will buy no diapers today!*..I will chant *I will not fondle my computer screen longing for them TODAY*...and we can sit in misery together!

I'm here, I'm here! Sorry I'm late! lol

Ok.. I have a couple of things that are already started and I need to pay for or are done and I need to pay for. I will take care of those ASAP but the things I've been corresponding about but haven't been started I will put an end to now. I will let them know that I will pay for it and get it started in two weeks because I'm participating in a support group for two weeks and after that is finished I will be able to start a project with them!

So.. let's see here.. what can we talk about? How about the fluffymail that we got today that will help us decide what to get in two weeks?

Today I got 4 tye dyed prefolds, 2 tee shirts, a pair of dyed socks, a dyed sachel, a scented tea light and a snappi from www.tyedyedreams.com SO IN LOVE! That's a must have place to go to that I will be putting in my "must visit again" folder in my favorites!

I also got an AIO from My Precious Baby April that's a sweet Peter Rabit motif (perfect for Easter) and I'm really not sure what I think. So we'll have to test this one out and decide from there. Once again, I'm re-enforcing within myself the need to receive the things I buy before buying more!

I can do this, you can do this.. together WE can do this!!

Nah, I can't agree with this. They are "my" diapers, the baby (well, toddler actually) just wears them. I freely acknowledge that the diapers benefit me more than they benefit him; that's what allows me to see my dipe purchases as total self indulgence rather than as necessary for him. So if I called them "his" dipes, I'd have to buy some more, because, you know, it's not like I want them, but he obviously needs them.

My name is Sarah and I am a cloth diapering addict. I have spent close to $450.00 in the last three weeks on newborn diapers. My last purchase was 4 hours ago. I bought 10 tye dye SOS prefolds from the TP. I have 2 daughters and one on the way.

I have more then enough newborn diapers.

24 Lukes Drawers hugs
10 fireflys from Fuzz
12 UBCPF
6 hemp PF
6 various fitted
10 hand dyed prefolds
4 Bummies covers
1 Buckeye Bottom cover

I need nothing. I need nothing. Does anyone think I should have a couple more covers?

I have a couple of medium diapers. I do have to buy those still. The baby isn't even due until June. I have plenty of time. Save the pleasure of the diaper buying.

I have some mediums...

3 Buckeye fitted
1 Buckeye AIO

And I am going to order some Berry Patch (someone please help me hold off....I want to order beautiful hand dyed hemp fabric)

I have all larges...

I need nothing for larges.

Sigh...

My name is Sarah and it has been 4 hours since my last diaper purchase.

The more you know, the worse it gets.

Hi.
I am a cloth diaper addict and I can't remember when my last purchase was...this morning...I think...

anyway, here I am, ready to stop. I do have a few auctions on Ebay, but that doesn't count I'm sure because I bid on them several days ago.

I can do this....I can do this...I am noting the time and day and I CAN last 14 days. I can do this...I can do this...

How am I gonna do this?!?!?!?!?:

Hmmm... Now, you have to wonder if that was Butterflymom's plan all along... If she can get people to stop buying diapers for a couple of weeks, she'll have her pick of all the stockings.

Devious. Absolutely devious.

Hmm... that does sound kind of suspicious... why don't you all get together on, oh, say Thursday and spend all day discussing it. And doing nothing else. At all. Nothing.
