Confessions of a Frugal Mom

I am a frugal mom and here is the evidence:

Exhibit A: My child wears a diaper to bed and wakes up dry. The frugal mom does not throw the diaper away...oh no...she reuses it the next night, and the night after that...even for 3-4 nights in a row if we are lucky enough to not have any accidents during the night.

Exhibit B: My child poops in his diaper. The poop can be easily shaken out of the diaper and into the toilet, leaving the diaper practically like new. The frugal mom does just that and then puts the diaper back on the child instead of throwing it away.

Exhibit C: My child insists on taking off his own diaper. In the process he rips off one of the tabs. The frugal mom does not throw the clean, yet disfigured diaper away...oh no...she pulls out her handy dandy duct tape to keep the diaper in place as she puts it back on.
Are you a frugal mom? If not...buying diapers for 9 years will sure turn you into one!

Yep, no ifs, ands or butts:
I'm a frugal mom!

I do SOME of those things, too. I also reuse those laundry static sheets, and even cut them in 3rds. I've found a whole sheet isn't necessary.
