Never feel like I have enough! I guess it's because I keep trying all these great WAHMs and I would love to have more. I have 1, 2, or 3 diapers of about 6 different WAHMs. Most are Heyna diapers. So they are pretty hard to get!

Is there too much of anything? All depends on your personal beliefs and philosophy on that subject. There are probably going to be completely opposing opinions on this.<br>
For me, yes, there is such a thing as too many diapers, too many clothes, too many shoes, too much food, too many toys, etc. etc. etc. I believe in moderation and self-control in all things. I try not to be mastered by anthing. If I can't feel content unless I have something that is non-essential to my basic life and well-being, then to me, I'm being controlled by it.

Aw, if you love it all - it's worth it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I probably have too many, but they mean a lot to me and they don't <i>totally</i> control my life. They're only in dipes for such a short time - might as well enjoy it while we can! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
ETA ~ I'm totally content - buying more diapers in just fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

It depends on your philosophy, I suppose. For me there can be, and currently are, too many diapers. I try to moderate our buying of just about everything, and have failed miserably and doing so when it comes to diapers. It makes me feel guilty so I am selling, selling, selling, and feeling free-er and lighter in the process. For others, nope, you can never have to many. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Seriously... probably which is why I'm going through and thinning out again... so I can buy more... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
Anyone remember that drug commercial about the guy doing coke... I buy coke so I can work harder, make more money, so I can buy more coke, so I can work harder, make more money, so I can buy more coke...<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle"><br><br>
Honestly, I go through cycles. I won't buy for a long time, then I'll buy for a while then I won't again.

I used to have too many and stopped buying but now I have too few so I"ll buy more and eventually end up with too many again. It's a ficious cycle!

I'd say it's reached too many if it's putting you in financial jeopardy. Other than that fact, why not enjoy it to it's full extent? If I had no worries about money, believe me, my stash would be huge! I'm always planning the next purchase. I'm not sure if I'll ever be totally satiated.

Now Ash asking that question in this forum is tantamount to asking a wino if you can have too many drinks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

I guess that it just depends what your needs and goals are. Do you want to wash daily, every other day? Do you want spares for the diaper bag?<br><br>
I have a lot of diapers. Not as many as some, but I have accumulated a bunch in the short six months that I have been using cloth. I have two in diapers. And I don't want to use and wash the same diapers day after day. I decided that I wanted a system so that I could rotate my diapers. That was my goal and I am almost there.

Yep- you sure can. Sounds like you must have too many! Just send half to me and- voila- no more problems!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br>

I think they call that "bingeing" :LOL<br><br>
As long as the diapers are being used and loved, they're happy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

As long as you use them and like them.. there is no such thing as to many! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
