Costco Diapering Round Up

When I had my first baby I loved ordering diapers. As our family grew and our kids grew (and grew and grew and grew)…timing diaper deliveries in day and night diapers in various sizes- plus wipes and then demands of pull ups- became practically impossible. I either had too many in a size we outgrew and had to give them away or I was about to run out. It was around then that I turned to Costco.

It is so much easier to walk in, grab what I need…and have it starting that second. If you’ve wondered this too but haven’t explored the options at Costco- there are A LOT!

Inventory and pricing can vary a little store to store but generally speaking the diaper selection is virtually the same at all stores.

In no particular order…here are your Costco options, quantities vary slight by size:

Honest Company Diapers — $25/box available in sizes 3-5

Example quantiity: Size 4 is 120 Count

Huggies Little Snugglers — $38/box available in size 1 and 2

Example quantity: Size 2 is 174 Count

Costco’s Kirkland Brand Supreme Diapers — $39/box for sizes 3-6, smaller sizes slightly cheaper.

Example quantity: Size 6 is 120 Count

Pull Ups in boys and girls styles — $35/box

Example quantity: Size 4t-5t is 102 count.

Moving on to wipes…

Huggies Natural Care ($25)

18 packs of wipes, for a total of 1152 wipes

Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes ($20) (at the time of this post they are on sale for $16)

9 packs of wipes, for a total of 900 wipes

And your diaper pail needs…

Diaper Genie Refills ($20)

The Clean 15: Best Items to Buy Non-Organic

Most of us Moms buy a hefty haul of fresh fruits and vegetables each week for our family.  If your bottomless pits (ahem, kids) are anything like mine…then you are buying A LOT.  Sometimes multiple trips per week.

I always try to choose organic, but sometimes its just not available at the store where I’m shopping and I need to do my shopping right then.  Or sometimes it looks half rotten in the store and I need produce to last for at least a day or two…so its a no-go.

When the organic selection is slim or unattractive or egregious or zero…what are the best choices?

The best options in this case will be the fruits and vegetables, which on average, are known for containing the least amount of pesticides.
