Thread: Are you cheap, thrifty or just plain miserly with your diapers?

    Default Are you cheap, thrifty or just plain miserly with your diapers?

    Howdy y'all! I was just wondering if anyone else feels the same way I do on a certain subject. We all know how expensive ABDL diapers are, right? And sure, the non-babyish adult diapers are a bit less, but they're pretty expensive too. So I really try use them to their fullest (pun intended, pun always intended) just to get my money's worth. It has gotten to a point that it is inhibiting my desire to wear, because if I'm just gonna wet a two dollar diaper just once before I have to go adulting in the outside world, I hesitate, thinking of the economics of it. Especially when you know full well how much it will hold! Why waste it with just a single wetting?

    So, any the Scrooge McDiapers out there? Do price or wastefulness play a role in you experience?

    Price and wastefulness definitely play a part for me. I have to know I can wear each diaper for at least 6 hours before I will put one on. I also always wet at least once before changing out of it (this is rarely a problem).

    Not really, but sometimes. Molicare Plus are super cheap from Staples (like, $0.60 ea), so if it's going to be a late evening change that's too close to bedtime, I'll use one of those to bridge the gap and not waste anything that's high capacity for an hour or two.

    But otherwise, I'm fortunate enough to stay in NSC Supreme and Snuggies round-the-clock.

    I suppose I am at least thrifty, although it's more a matter of using the proper diaper for the situation. I'm currently on a 24/7 bout, so there's no opting out until I decide to stop. Most work days, I don't spend a lot of time away from home, so I can wear something discreet and inexpensive. It's one of the slight flaws in my plan that I decide on a campaign of extended wear to reduce the overstock in my closet, but I wind up using cheaper diapers more often than the premium types that are really creating the backlog. Not the worst problem to have, I suppose.

    I don't use my diapers on purpose often.. Once or twice a week. It's not like I'm trying to save, my diapers are pretty cheap - about $6 for a package (pack of 10).. I just don't feel like using them too often, I like to wet them at night at weekends. And during the week I feel too much stressed to enjoy diapers.. x__x

    If I'm not on a binge I tend to only wear if I KNOW I'll get to the point of almost leaking. If I'm binging I'll wear even if it's just an hour or two. Even in a binge though I won't wear for just a short time if the day is indicating I'll need to sleep padded.

    Thrifty I'd guess... I can well afford more than I use but am sure to use each as close to it's capacity as I can. Of course the wetter the better the diapers feel so costs are not the only factor.

    I would never have thought of Staples for diapers! And some were quite inexpensive.

    Also? Love them Snuggies!

    My wife is the thrifty one in our family, and as a result, we live retired with a few extra bucks to spend. I'm the musician and when I was young, and spent every thing I had, which wasn't much. When I got married, we were living at the poverty level, and it took years to pull out.

    I wear cloth and that goes a lot further than disposables. I do wear Goodnites under my cloth so that I don't smell in the morning, something my wife appreciates. Plastic pants need to be replaced as well, but the cost is affordable. I'm a lot more careful about spending now than when I was young. With age comes wisdom, I suppose.

    I make efforts to be efficient. It's not so much being thrifty for me as it is environmental concerns. I actually feel quite bad about the landfill impact of using diapers, and it eases my conscience a bit to know that I'm using them fully and saving multiple flushes of the toilet in the process. Throwing out an unused or barely used diaper (especially something particularly specialized for long-duration wear like a bellisimo) makes me feel like I'm just stacking a bunch of non-degrading plastic in a landfill somewhere for nothing.
