1st up is my stash shot and I will break down what is in the photos for those who aren’t familiar to Cloth Diapering

Total cost for ME to take the Challenge 1.00

Total cost for someone starting out 138.71 Please note that this stash is large enough to carry one from newborn to potty training, and allowing for every other day washing or every 2 days washing. This also DOES NOT include the sale prices that I paid although those types of sales happen often so if one had time they could very easily cloth diaper their little one for under 100.00. A diaper sprayer is also not NEEDED although it does make things easier.
