When I decided to take the flats challenge, I knew I had no flats. Never wanted any so I was going to have to come up with a cheap option. Didn’t really want to invest a ton into something I probably wouldn’t be using. I started researching on the internet and saw that people were using receiving blankets. Gee… I have a bunch of those. Yay for me! Cost: $0
But that wasn’t enough. I needed more. So off to do more research and this time I found out about flour sack towels (FST). So I went to Wal-mart and there they were. 5 for $4.98. So I have 10 of those which just cost me over $10 with taxes. One day into this, I’ve realised unless I really want to spend most of my day washing, I need a few more. My son soaks right though one, so I have to double them during naps. Cost $10.52
I am using my pockets and covers I already had. I am stuffing some with flats because my hubby will never figure out the folds. LOL So yet another $0 in this area.
Washing… right now I am washing them in the tub. I’m on the mission for a washing board, but that’s ok. No poopy diapers right now so the handwashing is a-ok.
Where did you get your supplies to participate in the challenge? Did you spend more or less than what you thought you would?
