I totally agree with this one.  I have posted this same info many times on this site. 

I have received many posts with 'excuses' why they can't use cloth diapers.  So, okay, I can understand the one about daycare wanting one to use disposables.  But, what about when the kid is not at daycare.

Pampers or other brands are a luxury.  We sometime have to either pay for our own luxuries, cut back or do without. 

The economy is just not what it used to be.

I understand the hardships of trying to make ends meet raising kids. The is a way to be able to afford diapers.  Cloth ones work.  When my children were babies, they were just coming out with disposible diapers, and they were a luxury.  I only used them if we were traveling.  When my girls had their babies, they used cloth diapers too.  With cloth diapers you have to check them more often and change them more often.  I didn't have a washer and dryer. I rinsed the wet ones ont to cut down on the amonia smell and soaked them in a mild detergent and water in a diaper pail (trash can works good). The soiled ones you rinse in the commode immediately then soak them also until time to do laundry.  Many times I had to wash them in the bathtub.  If you do, then you must rinse them many times to make sure you get all the soap out of them. This won't solve all your problems, but will help.  Diapers can be made of any cotton material if you can't afford to buy them.  Dish towels and hand towels work too.  Good luck
