Re: I don't understand people who say disposables are cheaper

Granted I've only spent $750 on diapers for 4 children but I'd financially be better off selling my stash and using paper diapers...but I won't! I'm a die hard cloth lover! Better for their heinies and the earth. <3
I hadn't thought of that. That must be one killer electric bill (it's high where I live too but nowhere near that). That reminds though, I really miss Hawaii! I haven't been there in 11 years.
In with my DH, crunchy, attached Mama to 4. Homeschooling, long term breastfeeding, CD'ing, babywearing, homebirthing. Could I BE anymore addicted to cloth?!
