Save money by making your own baby diapers.  Diapers are not hard to make, and it is a good way to recycle while being thrift conscious.  You can use any soft absorbent material, woven or knitted. 

You can even mix the fabrics. They should be prewashed so they won't shrink.  Cut your pieces of fabric to the same desired size, and sew them together.  Stitch around the edges, as well as sewing a few rows down the length and width of the stacked fabric.

Diapers were not always available in stores.  You can do it yourself, do it better, be frugal and save money.
