When I first started this challenge, I had some serious doubts about if it was going to be worth my time. I'm a busy parent, I work full time, why would I want to give up a moment of my life to handwashing? Is this really something that is practical for working parents and would I want to do this on a regular basis?
Handwashing was much easier than I was expecting, but I still wondered if it was actually worth it. Environmental impact aside, many people just want to know if it makes sense financially. Is my time too valuable to cloth diaper? I first looked at the cost of disposable diapers for 1 week. Pampers brand (size 4) best price found at Walmart, estimated a 7.252% tax: $16.12 per week.
