A momentous day.  Today I washed my 1700th cloth diaper. 

I'm in shock!  Who knew one could go through 1,700 diapers in less than a year?  And that's with a child who was potty training for half that time!

I can't even FATHOM what 1,700 disposable diapers look like all balled up and waiting for the trash.


I'm so thankful I tried cloth diapers.  It was because of the encouragement of many of you!  And because of that, there are 1,700 FEWER diapers buried in our earth.  Wow. 


And how do I know that I washed 1700?  Because I'm nerdy and I made a spreadsheet and I kept track every.single.time I did the wash.  And I may have made a graph as well that calculated our total investment and how much money we saved with each washed diaper and when the two were equal (February 13).

Yes, I really did.  And it was really fun to geek out about it!  :)


Join me in geeking out today!

  1. Way to go! I don't think I want to know my number :) I recently rediscovered my love of cloth when we got our first foster son and I was able to whip out some old ones to use with him. They are the gift that keeps on giving!
