7 Reasons to Stock Up on Diapers


Before having children I had the chance to attend many, many, many (can we just do times 20 here, because it was a crazy amount of) baby showers. I started off finding the cutest outfit I adored for the mom-to-be and quickly moved on to learn each had their own taste and what I thought was darling may not be what they wanted or needed. I started to pay attention to what most seasoned moms were giving, and what seemed to always be a hit with lots of gratitude. Yes, there were the cute items, the insanely practical, but there was one thing I noted was always appreciated whether it was the first baby or the 10th. And then there was the shower I was invited to for a co-worker where that item was the only item requested it was a diapers-only shower.

As unromantic as that sounds, I’ve learned it’s one of the best things you can give, and I’ve tried to make it a part of every gift I give consequently. But aside from that, I’ve learned that stocking on diapers as a new parent has so many benefits beyond the obvious, and I want to share 7 reasons I think everyone who is a parent should be coupon watching for diapers on the regular.

  1. Never getting in a crunch running out. I know that one is obvious, but I thought all the more reason to include it first. We were out of our newborn pack super quickly and had to do a late-night run as brand new parents that we didn’t enjoy. We’ve learned not to let ourselves run out and be prepared to save stress and headache.
  2. Saving money. I hate having to pay full price for diapers, particularly when coupons are readily available. Finding a great price and stocking up when they are on sale is always a great idea! We went to Family Dollar this week to find a low price on Huggies Snug & Dry, and with the Family Dollar coupons, we saved another $2 a pack and $.50 on wipes. The Huggies one-and-done wipes are excellent, and deal bundles on diapers and wipes are always a win! I love savings several dollars a month, it really adds up after the years your child spends in diapers!
  3. Ready to gift. It’s now my go-to for a showers or moms who aren’t having a shower but I want to give a gift to. They are always needed, always appreciated, and it’s one less thing to make a trip to the store for when I have a great gift ready.
  4. There’s enough to stash. We currently have his/her diaper bags, a diaper bag insert for my purse, a changing station, and a grandparent’s home our child visits regularly. We like to keep a diaper or two in all locations at all times, and I love having enough to stash in all the places so we’re never left empty-handed.
  5. Not having to carry a load of diapers unplanned on a shopping trip. Boy, it’s hard to juggle a baby and a box of diapers! I love having a stash and buying during deals only when both parents can go to the store together. It’s just so nice to have a stash and not have to stress a giant load with a baby!
  6. It always you to give freely. I recently had my first incident where I bought a package months ago on sale and the packaging has changed and I couldn’t exchange for the bigger size we needed. I was bummed at first and questioned if stocking up was a good idea, only to learn of a neighbor who is unemployed and struggling financially with a baby a few months younger than mine. It was so easy to not even blink and offer that box. I got a good deal, I no longer felt like it was being wasted, and it felt great to give them to someone in need!
  7. It’s one of the most needed items at women’s shelters. This is a cause near and dear to my heart for obvious reasons, but I always think about the drives I see that are mostly around the holidays when money is tight, and I love that having some extra diaper packs on hand is something so easy to donate to mothers and babies who really need them!

I love the new innovations of Huggies diapers, they now come with increased absorbency for the same value and they are helping moms #HugTheMess with Family Dollar by giving diapers at a price we can happily stock up on! Remember to grab the Huggies diapers and wipes at Family Dollar and use the Smart Coupon to save $2 on any Huggies product!
