The other day when I went to Wal-Mart to do my weekly grocery shopping, they were doing inventory.
You ask, what does this matter?
Well, when you go for what you want or need and they’re doing inventory, chances are, they’re not going to have it on the shelves because if they do, then it makes it harder to do the count.
We needed baby wipes and they didn’t have the ones we use. When Aidan was little, we went through all different kinds of wipes trying to find what was best for him because he got diaper rashes from hell. We discovered that the Parent’s Choice sensitive cloth wipes (thanks Jess!) were best on him. We’ve used them for months now and he has barely had any rashes.
So what did I do?
Panicked. No. Really I wanted to go back to the back and get what I needed because they were lazy jerks. But, I didn’t. I chose something else.
I went with the Parent’s Choice Organic cotton wipes because, well, organic is awesome!! I don’t buy too much organic stuff that’s disposable since it’s more costly. The wipes were $2 more than what I usually get, but I did get more wipes for my money so I couldn’t complain. (Now if Mike would just watch Aidan closer on the weekends and keep him out of them!!!)
Now I don’t know if I want to continue buying the organic ones since we are trying to be more green, or stick to what we’ve been using since we are broke as hell.
Something else that bugged me was the change White Cloud made in their diapers. Aidan is still in the stage 3 and we’ve used WC since he was just a couple of months old. They just changed them recently and they are smaller and they no longer have the John Lennon artwork on them.
Why would they want to make them smaller all of a sudden??
Guess it’s time to move up to Stage 4!!!!
