Saving Money on Disposable Diapers and WipesMolly Thornberg
Any mom who uses disposable diapers and wipes knows the price you pay for them the first few years of your child’s life. Sure, you can use coupons to save a few bucks. I love saving money, but I am awful at remembering to actually bring the coupons with me to the store. They sit in a stack on my kitchen island, and then expire.
With my last baby, I started using Amazon to purchase all of my diapers and wipes with their Amazon Mom program. Not only does Amazon ship the diapers and wipes for free – I also save 30% off of the price! Yes, that’s right. Diapers and wipes at my door and get them on the cheap!
Here is how you can save on diapers and wipes with the Amazon Mom program:
You will need to sign up for the Amazon Mom program. By signing up, you will receive 30% off diapers and wipes when using Amazon Subscribe and Save. Read below for details on how to use Subscribe and Save.
How to Use Amazon Subscribe and Save
Amazon has a subscription service, called Subscribe and Save. You sign up to receive a product, in this case, diapers or wipes and you receive 30% OFF the price of the diapers when a member of Amazon Mom (which gives you FREE shipping!).
Note: by signing up for Subscribe and Save you are registering to receive product on a subscription basis.
You can cancel anytime. I am AWFUL at signing up for things and forgetting to unsubscribe but as many things as I have bought with this from Amazon I have never been sent anything I didn’t want. After you purchase you can immediately go in and cancel your subscription so you only will receive the initial shipment and you will still get the discounted price.
