The internet is mama’s little helper when it comes to stocking up and saving on essentials like diapers. Online diaper shopping is handy for several reasons: mom avoids having to juggle babies and boxes at the store, is able to buy in greater quantities, and best of all, can save money. That means more money left over for cute baby outfits. A comparison of five websites found similar savings, with slight variations depending on weekly special offers and coupon availability.
