I know everyone is always looking for ways to save money when it comes to their adult diaper “stash”. If you knew me, you would know I am actually a pretty frugal person and am always looking for ways to stretch my dollar so I am here to show you a few of the ways I save my money when it comes to my adult diapers. Check them out below:
- Order Online: One of the best ways to save on adult diapers and products is to order your products online. Online you cut out at least one middle man which ends up cutting costs when it comes to buying diapers.
- Order Adult Diapers in Bulk: Bulk ordering is the way to go. You may think your getting a great deal by ordering in packs in store but when you calculate the price per diaper – you are getting ripped off when it compares to ordering in bulk. Trust me, order by the case! You save a lot more money by ordering in bulk!
- Go With Premium Adult Diapers: I learned the hard way with this. I used to be the girl buying the cheap ol’ Depends or Attends because they were cheap but I would end up changing my diaper close to 6 times a day sometimes which is outrageous and you end up going through a pack super fast. Order premium adult diapers with the best absorbency you can get because they will last you longer and make you more money. (Recommendations: Secure X-Plus, Bambino Diapers, Abena X-Plus, Molicare)
- Use Boosters: Looking for a good cheap way to extend your diapers even longer? Buy some boosters to stuff in your diapers and it will make them last even longer! You don’t need the super pricey ones if you don’t want. Any boosters will work because they will add a lot of absorbency.
- Don’t Pay Shipping: Don’t pay for shipping! Shipping costs can be super expensive and add a ton of money to the total cost of the diapers.
- Watch Your Changing: Watch how often you change. Especially, if you buy premium adult diapers – you will be surprised how much those adult diapers would hold so watch changing after just one wetting. Be frugal with your changes 🙂
Other than those tips – just be frugal and wear when the best times are for you if you are a plewp_e wearer. These tips may seem obvious for being frugal with adult diapers but trust me a lot of people don’t think about them when ordering their diapers…I know I don’t always. But, TRUST ME, they can save you tons of money. If you have any questions – feel free to ask – I will definitely help!.
Hey adrian have you ever had a messing accident while you have been in the shower?
Hello. I agree with you for ordering online. You can really get a better value than say going to a medical supply store and not to mention a bigger selection to choose from than what a local store would be able to order or what they choose to have in stock on there shelves.
A small story late last year, It got me a case of Attends breathable. First time I evered got that much at one time. I got the use out of each one for regularity and wanting to try 24/7 while I had them for mainly of my DL side vs my AB side. A few weeks ago about the end of May I got a case of Attends Waist Band Style from a local Med Stored that I know of and get a few packs from time to time. What I just got was along the same line of thought. I can’t recall the last time I had the Attends Waist Band Style. I’ve had some trouble with them bunching up well before use and some of the tapes just not wanting to stay taped on when taping them on for the day or at night for bed. Yeah these diapers for me not the best around. I guess I’m pay for that line of thought for a major craving for a diaper that I’ve not had in a long long time. Yeah, not wanting to risk a leak from these while at work, I changed them asap.
Yeah, I’m going to think better the next time I order any diapers in bulk and stay with premium quality with a plan ahead spulrge of Bambino for at home comfort from a stressful day and others for general days for what life brings.
How about this for your next post or a post a little ways down the road, I think you need to do another review of a product or two. We all like your reviews of diapers and the likes. I think you should do a review for the best wipes for cleaning up during a diaper change. I was at a K-mart not long ago and got a tub of 32 disposable washcloths. The name Comfort Personal Cleansing Shield. 8.5 by 8.5 is the mewp_ement and likem and run about $10.00 I think that HDIS also has these and run about $13.00 a tub not knowing how many wipes that one can buy at any onetime. An everday wipe I’ve been useing as of late is from a Dollar General Store not far from my place. Healtsense is the brand 48 wipes runs about $2.75 and the mewp_ements are 7.9 by 12.5 Its large and thin but does the job that needs to be done.
Can’t say I didn’t think this was going to go as long as I was thinking just for a average reply I guess. If all else, just some facts from another run of the mill AB/DL and just putting my few cents in the pot no pun intended to pot sorry for replying to a good topic to a good blog that we all enjoy. Take it easy everyone.

Not many good diapers like Bambino in the UK
Greetings. Here’s a question for you. If a person is right between a given brand’s medium and large sizes, which size would be the safer one to try? I heartily agree with the tips mentioned in this post, all of them. It’s always great to get a good deal. Speaking of good deals, I just won a loose Hasbro 1998 Action Collection 12″ Boba Fett electronic talking figure for $15, including shipping. He usually sells for $70 or more, but I got him for much less. Loose is OK though, as it’s more fun to pose with other figures in diorama scenes. Have a pleasant day.
Blind Freak: If you are not sure about which size you should order, see if they offer sample packs for you to try. A lot better to get a sample pack than getting stuck with a pack that is too big or too small for you. Each company interprets small, medium and large sizes differently so you have try them out and see what works for you. Hope this helps 🙂
As someone who wears for fun, I totally agree about your timing comment. I get home from work late and usually won’t wear on weeknights because I feel like I don’t get the max enjoyment (or my full money’s worth) since I don’t find sleeping in diapers comfortable.
And the case of boosters I ordered after you wrote about them has revolutionized my diaper experience. They’re extremely absorbant, more comfortable, and I feel a bit more like a baby.
Thanks for the tips!
blind freak i would go for the bigger one because the diaper company seem to try to put the the mewp_ement on them where they barely fit. and u forgot to say to keep in eye out in thrift story because u can real get a real good deal there.
Nice post like always. This is also the major reason why I decided to try cloth to deal with my bedwetting when it started a year and a half ago. I just didn’t want to have to spend a lot of money on disposables for occasionally wetting. At the time it was really bad, but now it truly is occasional, but I have managed to spend only about $120 for all my diapering supplies. Of course, that doesn’t include laundry…
and yeah, If i were in your shoes, I would try to get the most out of the diaper I could too
have a nice day 🙂
you are the diaper god!
i firmly agree. buying in bulk is cheaper and when u buy on a reguler basies its nice to know you have many spares, and not having to run to the store to get more when u run out.
Interesting suggestions, hmmmm. At the risk of being branded a ‘wet blanket’ (LOL) here, but has anyone considered resusables? I find myself admiring the bambino ads above and thinking how great it would look and feel.
Then again I’m wondering how I’d feel about taping on a wally world plastic shopping bag that is stuffed with wood pulp and heaven-knows-what chemical gel. I guess I find it more comforting by pinning on layers of soft fluffy cotton gauze and waterproofing with a noisy pair of plastic pants. It may make make my rear puff out under my big boy shorts but knowing those noisome little leaks are contained are so stress reliving.
I do miss the old attends that had an obvious, fairly thick, blue tinted plastic cladding and the inside had a plastic perforated layer that made the inside slightly slippery, with a light dusting of baby powder, even when dry! The wadding, back then, was bulky enough to constantly remind oneself that you’re in a diaper!
I see these maxi-dry types that advertise thinner & thirstier pants and it goes against my own idea of 2 and under childhood garb. I guess my conception of being put in diapers is waddling around almost crab-legged and baby print plastic pants ‘ballooning’ out.
Question for you folks. I often wear bambino. The trouble I face is the pee odor. Sometimes I go long enough without need for a change that the odor starts to become noticeable. I usually have powder, but that only helps deodorize for a few hours. I’ve used other disposables that last pretty long before and don’t recall the odor being this noticeable.
Thanks in advance!
You suggested using booster pads, which I totally agree, but I had an incident last week, when I used a booster pad inside my Secure X-Plus, didn’t change it for most of the day, but what I developed was a bad cash of chaffing. What can I do to prevent this from happening again. Usually when I change my normal diaper several times a day… this isn’t usually a problem. Your thoughts?
cuddlyab drink more water more often. if you can’t get to water drink something else. If your pee has a strong smell it is because you aren’t drinking enough. It is as simple as that. If your diaper smells it’s not because of the diaper you have on it’s what is in your diaper.
My girlfriend insists on changing her every time she wets, which wastes a lot of diapers. Sometimes, we’ll even risk it by her not wearing one. Bad consequences. She says that she needs a change after every wetting ’cause she’s scared of rashes, boils, and chafing. I honestly think it’s because she’s a spoiled, prissy, li’l brat. Can I get advice on both possible reasons?
I keep a selection of diapers and pads of varying designs and absorbancy. That way I only use the expensive large capacity ones for when I know I will get full use from them.
