Twin boys...How many Diapers in ONE Year!? The answers below...

So forever ago, when I was pregnant with the boys, my BESTEST FRIEND in the entire world, came down to Austin and photographed a mini maternity session for me!  We thought it would be fun to incorporate all of the diapers that I had been stock piling!


Isn't this the truth!


I used a mixture of Pampers and Huggies, because I worked with the coupons I had available.  And I wasn't sure which my boys (okay I didn't know gender at the time) would like better.


Feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount I "HAD"...


So, after this photo shoot, and after counting all of the diapers that we "had" before the boys arrived, I thought it would be fun to keep track of just how many diapers we would go through in ONE YEAR.  So every time we opened a pack of diapers, we wrote down the amount in that bag or box.  

This beautiful pile you see in these pictures went VERY quickly.  I remember the first day we went through one entire 36 count package of diapers!  EXCUSE ME...WHAT!?
Then Collin decided that he would have reactions to "off brand" diapers...and we personally don't like Huggies, so we were stuck with using (and still using) Pampers.
I stopped counting on their first birthday - I know we are continuing to use HUNDREDS and THOUSANDS of diapers, but here is it folks!


1 Year's worth of Diapers with TWIN BOYS:

5,960 Diapers
Estimating that one diaper costs $.27 per diaper
In one year that cost $1,609.20 on diapers.  

HOLY CRAP!  That may not seem like a lot, but add in the monthly box of wipes that was being delivered to our house (thank you Amazon.com for that), food, snacks, equipment, etc...

Alyssa, this picture pretty much sums it all up :)
