Tales From A Twin Mom:
5 Things You Should Buy In Bulk
When You Have Twins
Speaking as a parent of multiples, buying certain items in bulk can really save you some dough. By doing the math and calculating how much each individual item costs, we can learn to save hundreds of dollars over the course of a year. Here are 5 items that every new parent of multiples should consider buying in bulk. While it doesn’t only need to be done at a warehouse store like Costco or Sam’s Club, the yearly fee is only $50 or so, and that fee pays for itself with the bulk discounts if you choose to go that route.

We all knew this was going to be the first item on the list, but make sure that you don't stock up only on one size. Having newborn diapers is a must in the beginning, but once your little love bugs start eating you'll soon have to go on to the next level. There is a rule of thumb that I always follow: you should expect to go through 24 diapers a day with twins, and 36 diapers a day with triplets until they are at least 3 months old. A great way to have a good amount of diapers by the time your babies arrive is to ask the person hosting the baby shower to state in the invitation that the admission fee to your party is one pack of diapers (cloth or disposable). This works every time! Just make sure you set aside space to store them!
