I’ve had financial difficulties in my life. I grew up with feast or famine as a child, and learned to shop for groceries like we never knew when we’d be short on cash. Buy in bulk, buy when it’s on sale, and buy a lot. As an adult, I’ve carried that over to staples like baby diapers and formula. Only once in my entire life as a parent have I ever had to make an emergency trip to the store for formula, and that was because Eudora was changing formulas and we were trying to find something that worked. I’ve never, ever had to make an emergency trip for baby diapers.
Sure, part of the reason for not needing to make an emergency trip for baby diapers is because we are using cloth diapers. But even with Andy, I still never had to make an emergency trip for diapers. There was this view that if you ran out of certain things, it was due to lack of organization.
