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.
5. Sucker Anyone?

I can't stress enough the importance of bulking up on pacifiers if your multiples end up using them. I can say that I have easily lost approximately 200 of these things since our twins were born. They fall behind the beds, they drop from the car when you open doors, and the dog steals a few for his/her own personal enjoyment. Newborns love to suck, and you don't want to find yourself with a crying baby who needs that one pacifier that you can't find looking under all the beds at 3 am. Multiply this by 2 or 3 and you have a perfect recipe for insanity. Never forget to read the packaging to ensure that you are getting the appropriate size for their age.
Chime in! What would you advise other parents of twins to buy in bulk?
