What do you use for outings? What else do I need in my stash?

What I have:

3 doz orange edge GMD prefolds
3 doz yellow edge GMD prefolds
3 doz red edge GMD prefolds
8 Thirsties duo wrap covers (size 1)
10 Flip covers

3 BG 4.0s
3 inserts and 3 doublers

12 tiny g-pants
6 small g-pants
12 g cloth
a few packs of biodegradable g-diaper inserts

Accessories:
Various size wet bags (2 small, 1 medium, 2 pail liners)
3 Snappies
A few sets of pins
in the process of making clothe wipes and microfleece liners

I'm debating getting 6 more BG 4.0s while they're on sale. The plan is to use prefolds and covers during the day, and the 4.0s at night. But what about outings? I was going to use G-diapers, but I'm not sure I'll like them. Would you add the extra 6 BGs for DH or the diaper bag or try the g-diapers first? Or maybe you use prefolds and covers for outings so don't need any of it?

Everything I've gotten so far has been seconds or on sale and I've gotten some really good deals to keep costs down. The buy 5 get 1 free BG sale plus earth day offers is tempting, but do I need them?

Yep, I would get more 4.0's. We just destashed to only 4.0s & Flips and prefolds and love it. They are just as easy as an AIO id you prestuff them.

I just use inserts in a cover out if the house since it doesn't take up as much space. Truckers prefolds would work and be Jr's bulky too.

More pockets of your choice for outings might make things easier or prefolds trifolded in a cover

I'm odd man out, I prefer flats folded in the Diaper Bag style because they don't take up so much room and I have 2 kids in cloth right now.I pair it with a flip cover.
