Cheapest way to buy diapers *As low as $5.50 this week!

As pretty much all of us know, diapers can be the most expensive thing in our budget. You have to have them and lets be honest, the off-brands are not that great and really not that much cheaper anyway. So, in case you are paying full price for diapers (yikes!) I am going to show you an easy way to pay $13 or less for 2 packages of Huggies or Pampers. I am really a fan of both but Huggies is cheaper because there are always coupons available for them whereas Pampers (since it is a P&G product and they only mail you coupons or include them in inserts usually once a month) coupons are usually only for $1/1 or maybe $1.50/1.

I still purchase pull-ups for my little girl. I primarily buy them from Rite Aid. To me, Rite Aid is almost always the cheapest. The reason is, Rite Aid always has either Huggies or Pampers (or sometimes both) priced at $8.99 and sometimes you even get UP rewards (that is a great week when they do that!). You will need to get a Rite Aid Wellness card if you don't have one. Its like Winn Dixie's. You have to have the card to get the price. If you don't have one you can get one from any store, just ask the cashier. Also, Rite Aid sometimes has store coupons for Huggies that you can stack with Manufacturer coupons. You can pair that with their $4/20 coupon you get from watching video values. The only thing is you can only use the $4/20 once a month.

Keep an eye on Walgreens and CVS as well. Sometimes they run them on sale and you can get either Register Rewards back (Walgreens) or Extra Care Bucks (CVS). Sometimes, CVS will run the big pack of Pampers diapers for $19.99 and you get a $10 ECB back. That is a great deal!

Rite Aid usually has a Huggies coupon for $2 off diapers/pull-ups in their video values. This is a store coupon and can be stacked with a Manufacturer coupon. However, this month there's not one. There was one last month. You can only have 1 coupon per product with the video values. But, if there was a coupon from a previous month and one for the current month, you can use both of those on 2 products. Say there was a video value coupon for $2 off Huggies in the month of October and another $2 off Huggies coupon in the month of November (the video value coupons don't expire until the end of the next month ie Oct's coupons will expire Nov 27). You would be able to use both of those and Manufacturer coupons. If you could use this scenario, here is what your transaction would look like:

-2 Huggies diapers or pull ups (we'll say they are $8.99 each)
-a filler item (look in the current ad and find an item you have a coupon to keep your total down)
Total: $20.98 (say the filler item was $3 to bring your total to at least $20)

-1 $4/20
-2 $2/1 Huggies Rite Aid video value coupon
-2 $2.50/1 Huggies diapers
-1 $1/1 (assuming you have a coupon for the filler item)

Your total now would be $6.98! *Pretax. This will vary depending on the sale and the coupons available but it gives you an idea. You shouldn't be paying any more than $6 for a pack of diapers (depending on coupons available and sales).

Now, if you plan on buying diapers this week, I highly suggest you go to Walgreens. Right now through Saturday, Huggies (diapers and pull ups) are on sale for $7.99. You will be able to get a pack for as low as $5.50 depending on which coupon you use.

Here are the Huggies coupons:
