Time to Stock Up? NBC Warns of Potential Diaper Shortage.

I read this article last night and while this may affect the diaper supply, no one really knows to what extent the costs may rise in this situation.

Being the frugal mom that I am, I figured I’d at least give you a heads up so you can get ahead of the game on this if you wish to.

Here is a list of all the diaper prices at Costco last I checked.

You can also compare them to Amazon’s pricing which is often times cheaper than Costco when you Subscribe & Save with Prime or your Free Amazon Mom trial.  Plus the shipping is free.  (You can try Amazon Prime for one month FREE here.) Here are some examples of what’s available there at the time of this posting:
