10 SECRETS to the Best Prices on Diapers
1. Start Stockpiling Early –
Diapers never go bad, so you can start buying diapers and watching for sales as soon as you know you’re pregnant. September & February are the months for Baby Sales! If you are pregnant during those month you will want to look for sales to stockpile!
2. Compare Diapers based on the Unit Price
Shopping for diapers can be complicated because every store has a different name for their Big Box, Mega Box, Super Value Pack, Bonus Packs, etc. How do you compare prices when each store has a different name or size of diapers on sale? Unit prices are the total price of the bag or box divided by the number of diapers included. Make sure you always calculate out the Unit Price based on how many diapers are included in the box.
A $10 Package of Diapers with 31 Diapers would look like this $10.00/31=$0.32 per diaper.
A Box priced at $34.99 with 150 diapers would look like this $34.99/150=$0.23 per diaper.
You might think you’ve found a good price on diapers, but this really depends on how many diapers are included and what size they are.
3. Know your Diaper Prices based on Size & Brand –
One of the most confusing things about buying diapers is knowing when you find a good deal. The quantities of the diapers in a box or bag change depending on the size so it’s important to know what your stockpile price is on every size! You’ll always pay more for larger size diapers so as your child grows the stockpile price per diaper will change.
Here are my Stockpile Prices for Name Brand Diapers based on Size:
Size 1 – $0.12
Size 2 – $0.14
Size 3 – $0.16
Size 4 – $0.18
Size 5 – $0.21

4. Buy on Amazon –
One of the best ways to save both Time and Money when shopping for diapers is by using Amazon coupons! Amazon has an entire page dedicated to online coupons you can clip and use without leaving your house including high value Pampers and Huggies Coupons that frequently show up.
You can stack Amazon Coupon Savings with the 20% Amazon Mom Subscribe and Save discount by following these steps:
1. Clip the Diaper or Wipes Coupon from the Amazon Coupon Page to apply it to your account

5. Skip the Warehouse Stores –
Did you know that Warehouse Stores rarely have the best price per diaper? I know so many people that just assume they are getting a good deal by purchasing diapers in bulk when in fact you could be paying almost Twice as Much! Warehouse stores provide convenience allowing you to stock up at a reasonable price but you can actually save more by stockpiling and tracking the sales at Drugstores and National Retailers.
I only use Warehouse Stores if I’m in a last minute rush to buy diapers, the shelf price is lower if you’re planning on paying the retail price, but if you have the time to stockpile and buy ahead so you don’t end up in that situations you can find much better deals other places.
6. Buy Smaller Packages in Big Quantities
This might seem really counter-intuitive but the smaller packages are often a better price PER DIAPER than the larger boxes, that’s because the sales and coupons are a bigger discount on the smaller packages. If you use a $2 coupon on a smaller package it is a higher percentage discount when used on the smaller packages vs. the larger boxes. This isn’t always the case, but most of the time it’s accurate so make sure you know your Diaper Prices well so you can stock up when you find a good deal!
7. Don’t skip the rewards
Stores like Target, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Kroger, & Safeway often put Diapers on sale with Rewards Offers.
For example: Buy 3 get a $5 Target Gift Card, or Spend $30 on Huggies Diapers get $10 in rewards.
You can stack these deals with coupons for BIG savings. You’ll want to stockpile and buy as many as you can when you find a good sale.
TIPS FROM THE PROSKnowing you stock up price is SUPER important when it comes to deals like this, when you are deciding between buying larger boxes and smaller packages it’s important to compare the per diaper price. Don’t forget you can download the Diaper Stockpile Worksheet Here.
8. Hoard those Coupons!
I don’t normally advocate hoarding anything but in the case of Diaper Coupons I’m not ashamed to admit that I print those babies every time they reset, I ask my friends and family members to save them for me and I sign up for every newsletter and mail out I can get my hands on! You can never have too many Diaper Coupons!

You’ll be surprised how fast your stockpile grows if you’re just consistent about watching the deals and using your coupons!
