Re: I don't understand people who say disposables are cheaper
When I was going couch shopping, I went to a Clearance place and bought my couch. I paid $350. It was missing throw cushions but was a very expensive $2000 couch. I had a friend that her couch was getting ratty and had stains due to young kids. They were all finally over the age of 5, so she wanted to buy a new one. I told her about my great deal. She said she could never "save up that much" so she bought a couch at a Rent-a-PayThroughTheNose place. I think she paid $50 a month for 3 years. ($1,800.)
It's the mentality of short term -vs- long run. Short term disposables are affordable in small installments. Long term cloth is cheaper.
