Clean up on Discounted Baby Supplies and Half-Price Diapers This Week

In my experience trying to frugally survive my first few years of parenthood, I’ve come to realize that many baby products marketed to parents are not really necessary.

Diapers, however, are a definite need.

Unless you have hand-me-down cloth diapers or your baby is a potty-training savant, the best way to save money covering your baby’s bottom is to take advantage of all the deals you can find.

The grocery chain Lidl is offering a weeklong sales promotion for 50% off its store-brand diapers. The sale starts Thursday, March 15, and lasts through the following Wednesday, March 21.

This deal is valid for size 2 packs of diapers, (which fit infants weighing 12 to 18 pounds), up to size 6 packs, (which fit toddlers 35 pounds and up). The discounted prices bring costs as low as $2.04 for a 44-pack of size 2 diapers — less than 5 cents per diaper!

The highest price during the sale is $3.18 for a 44-pack of size 5 diapers.

Lidl’s store-brand diapers already tend to cost less than popular brands like Huggies and Luvs. Parents who stock up on Lidl diapers during the promotion will get two packs for what they’d normally spend on one.

Shoppers can also take advantage of other related sales from March 15 to 21. An assortment of Lidl baby food, baby snacks, wipes and formula will be 30% off. Lidl’s “surprises section,” which changes weekly with rotating merchandise offered while supplies last, will feature Lupilu baby clothes and Nuby baby accessories starting at just under $2.
