This MoM Can't Live Without: Up & Up Diapers

Best diapers ever!

We all know that twins are a major expense, and clearly part of the financial burden is diapers.

With Big Girl, I was a Pampers Mom. I tried other brands, but nothing worked as well as Pampers for leaks. At the time, my local Costco carried the brand, so I was able to get them cheaper. And I thought I was saving money, but I now know I wasn't!

For the twins, Pampers were so expensive! When they were newborns, I started out buying them and I received many gifts of diapers. But when the gift diapers ran out, I knew I needed to find a cheaper solution to get through the next few years. I started testing out less expensive and store brands, and I fell in love with Target's Up & Up brand. The quality was really decent. They didn't leak. And they are patterned -- with giant dots on them -- which was kind of cool.

These diapers are sooooo much cheaper than Pampers, Huggies, etc., even with coupons. I am not an extreme couponer to get things like diapers for free, but I do coupon. (More on that in another post.) That said, I have found that Up & Up diapers are considerably cheaper than even buying boxes in warehouse stores. I recently compared diaper prices and found that a box of about 140 Up & Up diapers is $10 cheaper in Targer than a box of 140 Huggies diapers in Costco. When you have twins, that really adds up. (And if you have a Target Red Card, you save extra! I have the debit version, which is linked to a checking account, which means pay the same way you would with a debit card, but you get 5 percent off your final bill. Totally worth getting a Red Card!) often has coupons for Up & Up diapers as well, so be sure to check out their coupon link to print them before you go to the store.
