I know that baby wipes is probably not the most interesting thing to blog about, but I consider it to be a frugal tip. I know not everyone knows about this so I wanted to pass this little gem along. Besides, when you are changing diapers day in and day out, its nice to save some moolah.
I make my own wipes. Why? Because it's easy and cheap. Yes, I do love Huggies wipes but at $5-7 a pop for not that big of a container, it is just out of my student budget. In fact, it is out of my budget altogether. I refuse to pay gobs of money for something that will wipe a baby tush and be thrown away. I would much rather save my money for things I enjoy like...crafting!
I bought my wipes container at Walmart. I think it is quart size found over by the kitchen containers. It was $2 for two containers with lids. I thought about taking the mod podge to it the other day but since I wash mine in the dishwasher, I decided to forego cuteness and just go for functionality. The nice thing is I can take these wipes in the hard wipes cases or plastic bags for on the go. I don't worry about using these wipes for wiping hands or faces because they are SO cheap. They are durable though because they are Bounty, you know the quicker picker upper? I buy the Bounty usually at Target when they offer good deals for those big packs. I usually get them for $20-25 when they offer a free $5 gift card too. So that makes them even cheaper! These will last me literally longer than a year. Can't beat that!
