I wish someone warned me about just how many baby wipes I would be using across my baby’s early years. Maybe then I'd have known just how important it is to find cheap baby wipes.
It’s a lot!
And each and every square that you use costs you money.
You might as well call them money wipes.
Let’s do some quick mommy math.
The national geographic found that over the first years of life, the average American baby will wear 3,796 diapers.
That’s 3,796 diapers that need changing. And if you use 4 baby wipes per diaper change. That means you will use over 15,000 baby wipes over the course of your baby’s life.
And that doesn’t even take into account all the other times you use baby wipes.
So this figure is likely higher again.
If you choose natural baby wipes, count on this cost being even higher!
Your baby is literally pooping his way through your money. And he doesn’t care – he just stares at you with that smug little face.
Yeah... That's the look. He knows exactly how much you are spending on his booty.

While baby wipes are not the first product you think of when trying to make savings, they could actually be costing you a small fortune.
And if you have twins? You can double that cost.
As you can see, chasing down low-cost baby wipes is essential if you are on a budget.
And I’m going to let you in on the secret to doing just that.
It’s so easy. You don’t have to stalk every sale. And you don’t even have to clip every discount coupon. You only have to do one thing…
I saved hundreds of dollars on my baby wipes bill in my first year just by upping the quantity I bought each time. And those savings went towards an electric wine cooler (hopefully you are wiser with your savings).
And the best part is:

Can’t see your favorite brand? Don’t worry. The specials change weekly. If you keep checking back you will eventually come across your favorite brand on sale. And when that happens, it’s time to stock up!
The only downside to stocking up on bulk baby wipes is that you will need to find somewhere to store them until a time when they are needed.
But really, it’s worth it when you are considering the potential savings to be had. Economically, buying baby wipes in bulk just makes sense.
And perhaps the biggest advantage of having an abundance of cheap baby wipes on hands is that you won’t be so thrifty with their use. If your baby has let rip the mother-of-all-poop-explosions then you won’t feel so guilty about using extra baby wipes to clean it up.
Another money-saving option is to make your own baby wipes!
