Not sure exactly where I'm going with this, but I'd be interested to hear of ways in which you may have done something similar..
A few years ago, I bought some supermarket branded diapers here in Scotland -- which were size 6+, the biggest size I'd seen on the shelf. Having heard (slightly believable) stories of those my age fitting into Pampers size 7s, I thought "what the heck!" and bought them. Long story short, they didn't fit (no surprise!) and was unsure what to do with them now that they were in my possession; I couldn't keep them as they'd just take up valuable hiding space.
After much debate with myself, I ended up taking them to my church and leaving them in the diaper changing bay there. In no time at all, colleagues in the church were asking one another who 'donated' the diapers! I obviously couldn't say it was me, but part of me genuinely wished I could without people wondering why.
While I wouldn't do it again (because, frankly, the mothers in the toddlers group would be taking complete advantage every Wednesday morning!), it does make me wonder how often this happens in any context. How other DLs have dealt with getting rid of diapers that they know are no use to them? How do you get rid of diapers that you know aren't going to be of use to you? Do you just throw them away, or do you find someone who you know will put them to good use? Have you ever given diapers away anonymously?
I'm sure I'm not the first person to get diapers and realise they're of no use. But whether or not you've been in that situation, what creative advice could you give for getting rid of unwanted diapers without 'coming out' or just shifting them on through eBay?
Who knows.. perhaps this might serve as a useful thread for those who ever do end up in such a situation for whatever reason
As a wee side note... While it would be amazing to have a virtual diaper exchange / donation , I realise it's not feasible here for privacy. It's a conversation that happens on this forum time and time again -- but I still can't get over just how incredible it would be to send a diaper or two to those who you know can't get them like you can for whatever reason; be it with living arrangements, financial situation, or whatever. If anyone wants to throw 2 cents at how this would ever work, I would love to hear from you.
