WTF?!?!

So D and I head to BRU today to buy some more diapers for the boys. Now, I will say that we are lucky in that our kids don't go through a crazy amount of diapers a day, and one very large BRU box coveres each boy for a few months. We usually get a pretty good deal and are able to combine a sale with coupons there. Sometimes we get to scan multiple manufacturer's coupons for each box. I digress...

We drove to the brand-spankin-new BRU/TRU right by my school. In the past, when the boys were born, we bought boxes of Pampers (the largest boxes) for 32.99 each. We'd noticed a price jump recently to 35.99, and then on vacation they were 37.99 this summer. Tonight they were 40.99. 40.99!!! What in the world? I'm already angry we get NO coupons from Pampers, but now BRU hs jacked the price up 8.00 in 18 months?!?! Outrage, I tell you!

I hear ya! we switched from pampers to luvs since the boys are in daycare now. they go thru 6 diapers EACH a day..that's 12 a day and a 84 a week. its crazy, but mandatory to be changed that often.

I am totally with you on this! I just bought diapers this week, too, and I was like...huh, more than $40? When did THAT happen? They'll probably blame it on the economy...
