Karma Cash-Out

I love the BumGenius 3.0 diapers. As far as cloth diapers go, I give these 5 out of 5 stars. I have Nora in these bad boys for various reasons, by far the number one being to save money. The 3.0's fit babies from 8-35 lbs, so she'll be able to wear them until she's potty trained or, next week, if she continues on her current trend.

I got a $100 gift card to Amazon with our credit card points. Because I like to live life in the fast lane, I bought 2 more diapers at $17.95 each and a pack of razors. Tyler, equally as daring, bought a reusable air filter and air filter cleaner.

Yesterday, the box came and there were THREE diapers in it. The customer service rep was a little confused as to why I was even calling. "Well, do you want to keep it, or do you want to send it back?" she asked. "If you want me to send it back, I'll send it back. But, if I can keep it, I'll keep it." "Why don't you just keep it? It will be less work for everyone involved."

So, take that all those people who won't give me a job. I made $17.95 in one day.

First off, I am always overwhelmed and amazed that you use cloth diapers-that is so beyond my capabilities. And you made me laugh with what you spent your money on-that sounds like me. Congrats on the free diaper.

A diaper cost $17.95? Really?

I am interested in using cloth diapers for our second child. But was wondering...do they make their butts extra big so you have to buy bigger size pants/shorts (just wondering because many people give outfits at showers and such). also was wondering how you clean them? I've heard some people wash them in the washer & others wash them by hand and then set them out in the sun.
