:horse1 All aboard!

How's this for ironic? Just when we get cool new wagon smilies, the wagon fizzled out!

I saw a couple of people wondering where the wagon went, so your self- appointed wagon :cop: decided to start a thread.

When was the last time you bought a diaper? What should you be spending money on besides diapers?

So is anybody going to join me, or am I going to sit here talking to myself?

I'll join you! I need support

I last bought a KP (okay TWO) at the stocking. I need to stay on the wagon until October 4th (I want some more Mammamade) and then get back on it and buy my little girl some shirts to go with her longies!

Oh... I might fall off on Thursday if I can score a WIO from BB. I am not very good at the wagon thing!

Mom to 4! Welcomed Aila Wren on Friday, February 25th!

I bought dyed prefolds yesterday!

I should be buying all sorts of things. I am in desperate need of new clothes for myself, but I just keep buying diapers! I even took the money that my family gave me for my birthday to buy diapers! I'm still trying to build my stash since I just started CDing last month...

My family won't give me just money for birthdays, etc anymore because they know I will spend it on diapers, not on something for me! :LOL

I'm thinking about liquidating as much of my stash as I can pry out of my fluff-loving hands, so that even with my scheduled customs this fall, I'll be on the plus side, paypal/fluff-wise. The reason? Well I wash every day. I just go through enough diapers so that my wash basin is comfortably full adn not at all overly full in 24 hours, so that's when I wash. But I have enough stash to go....a week. I just think it's silly to have about 7 times too many diapers, so I MUST sell some. And the wool covers, too...I LOVE WOOL COVERS so much, but then....DS is coverless at home, right...? and when we go out I put him in a very baby basic AIO for trimness and ease of changing-out-of-the-house... so when do I need wool covers??

gotta sell stash!

I'm here with ya Becky, for REAL this time! My stash has bloomed (read: exploded) into a big mass of fluffiness, so no more need for anything now. Except maybe a minishower, but that really shouldn't count because it's mroe of a necessity than for fun

Angelica, whatever you do, don't tell us when you start selling off your stash! That would be a near catastrophic event for us wagoneers. Especially your wool. :LOL

I only say it because you, mama, are the reason that I bought my VB AIOs- for dh's own personal stash. And you know what? They are the first thing he reaches for and he likes them! He hates snaps And he most definitely doesn't get wool- my loveybums covers have both ended up in the diaper wash with everything else after he didn't know what to do with them when poop got on them. :

Ok, i was never part of the wagon before, so i guess now would be a good time for me to jump on... it's ok to be on the wagon and still do trades right???

My last purchase was a fleese SP embrodered cover, a wool SP embrodered cover, and a med TxBB AIO. all these bough from Carrie (SP maker) off the TP.

I need to start saving some $ to buy myself some very very needed clothes since i have about 4 outfits to wear until i lose more of this baby fat, and i'm so so sick of wearing dh's t-shirts i need some cute nursing tops!!! ARRRRR Keep me away from the TP, although i will have to jump off the wagon on friday to pp a lady for some Rikki wraps she's holding for me, good price, i love my smalls and need med for when allie grows into them!!! LOL then i NEED to stay on this wagon and away from the TP until begining of November when i get my Chirstmas money...

I must hop on this wagon. I keep buying things (KP, KHW, luxe) when I am trying to save up for my FM custom. I am vowing to not purchase another item until I pay for my FM custom.

Thank you for bringing back the wagon -- I need it! I'm not sure when I last bought a diaper. What do I need to spend the money on? Food!

~My name is Suzi and since discovering MDC I have become a dipeholic~
I cashmere and when I discovered there was more to dipes than proraps I was in trouble. We can afford proraps, cashmere is a rare indulgence that has been appearing in my mailbox wayyy to often.

The last thing I bought was purple cashmere KP from the TP, and I said when I got my purple cashmere KP I was done....so I'd like to have a dipe free october then buy a few non-cashmere covers in Novemeber then be dipe free till January. I've gotta have the $ to score a pair of moss feet shoes for squeakers christmas pressie (to match the BBH she's also getting). Got to have $ for all those Christmakkah pressies not to mention a new pair of sneaks

Angelica, you don't need fewer dipes, just more babies!

Seems to me we agreed that as long as no new money was leaving bank accounts or credit cards you're ok. So trades are fine!

Welcome aboard!

You're right, Becky, I shouldn't come on the wagon thread and rave about a product that you want to try- not fair!

They have a really long drying time and...and...they're boring solid colors...how's that?

Virg, stay away from the TP! More than one wagon rider has fallen victim to it's thrifty temptations!

mmmm...caramels....

I'm on the wagon until november at least. We added up all our bills for this friday and it didn't leave any money for ... well... FOOD! lol! So I had a garage sale with a friend and made a whole $110 bucks. We usually spend about $225 every two weeks so this should be fun Builds character right!

But once finances are in order I desperatly need some more fitteds for this kid!
