Diapers Are Expensive

Diapers can get expensive, especially since you will likely be buying them for years. To help keep your costs down, it's important to get a good price? But, how do you know what a good price is? How do you know if you are really getting a good deal on the jumbo pack or diapers or if you would be better off using your $1 off coupon on a small pack. The best way to compare prices across brands is to look at a price per diaper.

Of course, the price per diaper depends on the size.
