We're flat broke this week. Nada, no money left. We're waiting on dh's paycheck to come through on Monday and whatever $$ I make this week from ebay. And even that is mostly committed to the mortgage and things like, oh, electricity and heat!<br><br>
Thank G-d, we have plenty of food in the pantry and we can make do.<br><br>
What if I had to buy disposibles? I can't imagine the anxiety that would come about if I was running out of diapers for my babies and didn't have any money to buy more with. I can't imagine the anxiety for the millions of people who don't even know cloth is an option, much less EC, and have to scrape together $9 for a pack of paper to wrap their kids' bums in.<br><br>
But we're good. We've got our cloth, we have some detergent (and lots of baking soda around if we run out of detergent), we have water, we have power. We're okay. My babies will be fed (one of them directly from me) and their tushies will be clean and dry.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">.

It's good to know you can provide for your kids even if things are tight, isn't it? I know when hurricane Katrina hit it made me so glad I was nursing my baby. I couldn't imagine being in a situation like that and needing formula. It's good to know she would be fed even if there was an emergency.<br><br>

I often think this when our funds run low. I'm grateful I can just go to the dryer and pull out a diaper instead of worrying about how to afford a package of disposables.
