All's I can say is what a bunch of sissys! A true addict wouldn't take a break from diaper buying until it's time to potty train. At least that is the motto I live by. Now you will have to excuse me while I go shop for more diapers.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Bolt.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bolt"><br><br>

I'm still here, and really grumpy about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> I almost ordered some SOS prefolds last night because I *need* them so bad...but I didn't...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> Seriously, this was fun, but it isn't anymore.

I just want to offer you all my support when Fluffymail stocks today. I know I fell off the wagon but I am not going to stalk today, I am leaving the house and going to lunch with my friend to stop myself!<br><br>
I have enough, I'm going to donate what I would stalk (I have super high speed internet and a fast mouse!) to someone who has no fluffymail!

For some this is silly for me this is serious. I need to feel like I can have that sense of control that diaper buying has stolen from me (ok, I gave it away)! I need to be able to make good decisions by receiving my fluff before I order more.. what if I love my fluff and want more of that but spent money on 10 more WAHM's..kwim? I would love to plan my fluff spending better and not feel limited to a diaper a day but rather 10-20 diapers at once! I want to know what I'm spending by giving myself a limit and not impluse buying all the time and saying.. "Oh look, I spent $500 this month.. I meant to spend $200"! lol No.. this is a good and serious thing for me. Even if some *unknown* WAHM ratted me out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> (though for the life of me I can't think whom and I truly haven't spent a penny).<br><br>
Anyway.. even if this thread and this commitment do nothing to change my diaper buying I know that I can do it if I set my mind to it.. that's something else I want to gain from this!<br><br>
Oh and regarding the Rice vs Cashmere.. she said both are 50/50 blends and the Rice is softer but she finds the Oatmeal Cashmere combined with the Merino inside to be more waterproof than the Rice. Angelica - How waterproof is your Rice?

But *I* don't have a problem, see. :LOL I just ordered some soaker pants for $8!!!! from reuseabums.

Ain't never had a leak with the rice, and I've used it overnight--but I have really absorbent diapers and doublers, since DS has unexpected heavy wetting moments I have to be prepared for at all times. I haven't had it more than a few weeks though, and I can see what she means about the oatmeal beíng SUPER waterproof--but I think the Rice works great and you don't have a heavy wetter and go nuts for softness, so GET THE RICE! Or better yet, one of each!<br><br>
Re: this game--for those of us who truly don't need another thing, I think it's important that we take a breather, let all our miscellaneous custom orders arrive, take time to evaluate all our recent and even slightly-less-recent purchases (it takes awhile to figure out how you really feel about a dipe or cover, I think!), and plan future purchases wisely, rather than just for thrill seeking. I know at this rate I'm going to have a 5,000 stash by summertime, and we can't afford that, it's insane. I love supporting WAHMs, but my new, young family needs to save up for our first home! Wish me luck in getting my habit under control, guys, truly.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Jenn, Jenn-- you must take a look at what I wrote at the beginning of that fateful quote:<br><br>
"Not that this is directed to you, Jenn-- "<br><br>
Nobody in particular was being ratted out!<br><br>
But you do have enough guilt and angst to rivel the best of us Jewish mamas--<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Karla - I had always known what you said about it possibly not being me but I'm a reacter and I had to react! lol You crack me up about Jewish mamas!<br><br>
Angelica - I'm right there with you! I could have written your second paragraph! We need to save for a house too and we are a young family and I'll hit $5000 by summer at this rate too! :LOL I'm telling you.. I could have written it! So, is anyone else serious besides Angelica and I? Two week waiting lurkers.. de-lurk!!<br><br>
Oh and I did stick with the rice. I only keep good fitteds that move the liquid well and I have a light wetter to top that off! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Thanks for the advice!!

okay, I've been lurking...and I am not buying anything for at least two weeks. My goal is to make it 6 weeks! (I'm giving up diaper buying for lent and trying to be content with what we already have.)<br><br>
I am going to use this time to sell off what we aren't using and decide on what I really want to keep. I want to see how much paypal $ I can accumulate.<br><br>
Then.....come April 11 (Easter and my Birthday too) watch out WAHM's!!

Well I have been lurking and have (in my mind) "joined" but I'm focusing on fabric instead of diapers, although I need to quit buying diapers too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
I think I move from addiction to addiction sometimes.... first I was enthralled with everything Wedding, then it was TTC, then it was Diaper Buying and now it's Fabric.<br><br>
Stop the Insanity!!! :LOL

Here is a group we have to join.<br><a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ClothDiaperAA/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ClothDiaperAA/</a><br>
I am going to. I fell off the wagon<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> I got 2 medium ff off the TP. I really need help!

I joined that group, although I'm wondering based on the description ('join us on our quest for the perfect diaper') if it's going to help me quit!!!<br><br>
Seriously, people, I need major help--the organic SPs are callin' my name big time--I love Sugarpeas diapers....I have 13 hemp ones but only 1 of those are size 2, and he will outgrow his size 1s soon, more than likely (he's a big baby!) and we do love the way the size 2 fits on him as well (odd that both sizes fit well). I want one just to try, so I can compare them with other diaper orders heading my way in March: Bottombumpers, El bee Babys, FCB 2s, and be able to make an educated decision about which brand to stock up on more of when I need 'em. Can everyone tell I'm just justifying???? My all-hemp size 2 is probably enough for comparison's purposes, but perhaps the organic cotton one stays so much softer and is so much more awesome and I could be sititng over here in Finland not knowing about them while everyone in the US snaps them up and I can't get any! Must....resist.....urge to buy......

What day are yall on?<br>
As a recovered diaper addict myself I say good luck. I unsubscribed from some yahoo groups as to not be tempted. And honestly I can say over the past month I have bought 3 things. That is amazing for me.<br>
(coming from the "biggest spender at Fluffymail" hall of fame) :LOL<br><br>
Its not easy. Heres some tips<br>
1. Unsubscribe from the yahoo groups that tempt you.<br>
2. Do NOT GO TO THE TP unless you are selling something.<br>
3. Go through your diapers and sell off what you really don't need/like, it is very liberating to make some cash and it keeps you busy.<br>
4. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT go in chat! LMAO!!!!!!

Welcome to the de-lurkers and thank you for de-lurking! lol I was starting to feel a little lonely in my quest to stay sober (even though you are good company Angelica <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ). Thank you for the tips Shelly....<br><br><br>
Personally, I'm having issues. There's an instock soaker (I won't say where because it will be gone in a heartbeat if I do) that's Nathan's size. I tried one from there before and really liked it but I got a size too big.. now there's one just as if not more beautiful and it's in his size.. I really need it! TyeDyeDreams is stocking tomorrow (or is it today?) and I need some infant prefolds because he only has 3 and 2 of them I got yesterday are bleached and for whatever reason don't work well. I know TyeDyeDreams uses unbleached.. There's something else but I can't think of what.. seriously, I'm extremely tempted and I don't know if I can hold out this time. I made it overnight and didn't buy the soaker but I really want it now.<br><br>
Oh and Angelica - I think you're justified to buy an organic cotton sugarpeas.. the only thing I'd do first is email her and ask when she plans to stock again.. if it's over a month away then go ahead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
