Modern Cloth Nappies on a Budget? 3 Cost Cutting Strategies to Save Your Money + 1

How do I find cheaper cloth nappies for cutting my nappy budget?

I want to be saving even more by using green cloth nappies…

– You need to find cheaper cloth nappies in Australia or New Zealand without losing out on quality?

There are heaps of ways to reduce the money you spend setting up your cloth nappy stash.

First of all, start with one! That one cloth nappy will have you money in your budget – every time your baby wears it. In this brief article I’ll cover 3 strategies you can use to find modern cloth nappies much cheaper than regular prices. Reusable cloth nappies mean ongoing savings – even when you do buy the top quality ones. So if you like hunting for a bargain, read on…

3 Strategies for cutting your costs with modern cloth nappies:

1. Preloved or Secondhand: Great Bargains Are a Click Away, and Soothing to Your Family Budget…

Used Nappies. They are cheaper. There are plenty of online marketplaces where you can bid on pre-loved cloth nappies. There are sites that specialise in moving quality secondhand cloth nappies from one owner to the next. Some are brand new, as their previous owner picked the wrong size, didn’t like it, didn’t need it, was given it as a gift and didn’t like the colour. Or they happily used it and now their baby has now grown and they are selling off their stash to recoup some cash – perhaps for training pants! There are many reasons; you can shop smartly and grab a very good deal. Aim for at least a 30% discount on a new nappy, more for a pre-loved one – they are used after all! You can expect them to be quite absorbent – BUT, if they have been washed with detergent, a good wash with hot water then time in the sun is a good way to clear out any odours, stains and residues…

2. A Little Bird Told Me: Follow the Twitter to Special Offers on Modern Cloth Nappies…

The ‘Twitterverse’ is actually a great place to source specials on modern cloth nappies as they happen. As you may have noticed about celebrities on the news, things are often announced on Twitter first. Modern Cloth Nappy Shops do the same thing. They announce a special – perhaps a super special! They do things like give out special discount codes just to their twitter followers for short- term specials, announce modern cloth nappy ‘seconds’ up for grabs. So, join up, make up a username, start following a few of your favourite nappy sites (You can actually pop them into a separate list) and then, when you need to get a new nappy for your stash – even your first green nappy – pop over to Twitter and do some saving on cloth nappies by seeing the bargains as they are announced!

3. Facebook Fan Pages Hold Great Specials For Thee…

There are lots of fan pages popping up on Facebook. Often, the retailers will have special offers for their fans on these pages, and pre-release special offers on their cloth nappies, source testers for their nappies, perhaps offer the chance for reviews and the ever popular contests and giveaways so you can even WIN a cloth nappy from a shop you like! Certainly joining a few fan pages and keeping your eye on them is another way to help your household nappy budget.

With these 3 simple strategies you’ll be hunting down bargains in no time then awaiting even more fluffy mail to push that washing day away!

What if you made it a goal to save 30% on the retail price of the next modern cloth nappy you buy?
