Which Diapers Survived a Huge Destash?

In July I posted a picture of my stash on my Facebook page before I sold a lot of my diapers. We were moving across the country and I had to get my stash down to a reasonable amount. Plus there were a lot that I didn’t use as much or grumbled when it was their turn in the rotation. It was time for them to go. So which diapers survived?

My Stash - Then and Now

THEN:

This was my stash in July 2012. It was a bit unmanageable and I was forced to store them on a utility shelf. Not a very attractive storage solution

My Stash - July 2012

There were 50 pockets & AIOs, 9 fitteds, and 8 covers.

NOW:

As of today my stash is more about quality than quantity. I really like all of the diapers that I have now and they work very well for us. I did a large destash before we moved in late July and I have done some smaller ones since then and bought a few more.

Which diapers survived?

Pockets, AIOs, AI2s

Covers & Fitteds

Now I can finally use the dresser that we bought for K for its intended purpose! I specifically chose this dresser for the small drawers on top. I thought they would be perfect for his cloth diapers.

And I was right. As long as my stash is a reasonable size!

    What is the best way to destash diapers? I am impressed with your before and after! That was a lot of diapers!!

    • Regan says

      I sold a lot on Facebook buy/sell/trade boards or sites like Diaper Swappers and Cloth Diaper Trader. I also donated some to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. I sold a few on Craigslist as well but that was mostly more trouble than it’s worth.

    I’m thinking about starting with the Sunbaby diapers. How are they in your opinion? I noticed one survived your culling lol.

    • Regan says

      They are my favorite of the “cheap” diapers. The Sunbaby was my husband’s favorite diaper in our stash and still might be. I did a review of them if you want to read it. http://theantijunecleaver.com/2012/03/ohh-baby-baby-sponsor-spotlight-sunbaby-diapers/ We no longer have the diaper in this review because a snap broke. This can happen on more expensive diapers too and it would have been more expensive to send it to be repaired than it would to buy a new diaper. With a $5 diaper you’re not going to get the same quality as you will with a $20-$25 diaper, but for the price, I really like them. They fit well and the inside is very soft. I would definitely recommend them as a starter stash for someone who doesn’t have $300 to spend at one time or for someone on a budget.

        Mine fits the same as most of my other OS diapers. Maybe I got a size 2? K is 27 months, 30ish pounds and about 34″ and he wears it with the rise all the way out and on the 2nd set of waist snaps.

    • Regan says

      Yes it is. My older son has the smaller one of the same dresser in red. I love them.

      It was very hard to let go but once you rip the bandaid off it gets a little easier to start to let them go. Especially when you replace them with ones you like better.

    • Regan says

      haha. They’re not always put away but this morning I realized that I actually had them all clean except for his overnight dipe and the one he was currently wearing so I took advantage of the opportunity :)

    • Regan says

      I assume you mean the one under the orange diaper? That’s a Fireworks RagaBabe 2-Step.

      Trust me, most of the time 2 loads worth are in a laundry basket, sometimes even stuffed and folded 😉
