Meaning diaper, cover, AIO, etc. I don't think we've done this poll in awhile!

I think the most I've spent is $25 on a Sleeptight.

Now it's your turn to fess up! I'm interested to hear if anyone's ever bought one of those $120 tartan fuzbombs.

I think my Kiwi Pie has been my most expensive so far. Around $28?? I am planning on getting an SP heirloom cover one of these days (around $50).

I spent $41 plus postage on a MM soaker, and it was worth every cent IMO.

I've spent around $55 on a few items. Righteous Baby wooly pully, a Tuesday Bear cover, and my Blue Skies Fuz easy came out to that much after shipping I think. Oh, and a couple of Fuzbombs which are close to $55 after shipping.

So far $39 for a Bridget's soaker is the most I've spent, followed by $32 for a Kiwi Pie rice cover. DH just doen't understand though. He thinks its crazy and outrageous to spend more that $10-12 for a dipe or cover. Silly men they just don't get the diaper

I *think* it was either $27 or $30-something for our WoolyBumBums Mariners cover. Worth every penny and then some!!!!!!!!

Well, my KSS soaker pants were $90.

But for a diaper, my highest is $30, which was the Buy-it-Now price of a fleece-lined Pinhead. I just can't get my stash built up fast enough of Pinheads.

And I don't and won't do Fuz.

$20 on a starbunz Tiger AIO.

I usually buy used so I have had some expensive dipes but not on their first go around.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

I'm still too cheap (not a full-fledged yet) so my biggest purchase is my Loveybums wool cover which is coming in the mail, paid $16 plus shipping to Canada for that. But DH still gives me the evil eye when I run back from the mailbox....

The most I have spent on one item is $25 for a Patchwork Pixie Raspberry wool cover. I have never cloth diapered a real bottom yet, so I am sure I will probably outdo myself before long once the baby is born.

I've paid the big bucks for multiple Righteous Baby Shell Sets as well. Ann's work is so wonderful I'll be first in line (or at least #158) to pony up the big bucks again when she gets back from her babymoon.

The most I ever spent was $30 for a pair of wool knitted pants...
After that, $25 for a FMBG new AIO...

I have a lot of expensive hyena diapers and covers, but I bought them all used.

yesterday I payed $30 for a beccabottoms ultratrim aio with extra snap in and shipping at her stocking

I'm in love with those dipes and her waitlist is full and 70 customers deep, so what's a mama to do?

Of course, I'm over on the tp as we speak, begging for people to buy my stash, so I don't think I'll ever do it again.

$76 for a Fuzbaby auction. What was I thinking? It's a great diaper but come on. It was more about the last minute competition than the diaper. I need therapy. That being said, I do really like it.
