I’m Ready To Be Out Of Diapers

OK, so I’m not actually in diapers.  I did just cross over to my 39th birthday, but I’m not the one in diapers.  However, both of our kids are still in some form of diapers, and I’m so ready to be done.

Amazon Diapers Saving Some Big Bucks!

That means that we were looking at:
15% the original subscribe and save
15% for the bonus subscribe and save promo
20% off the coupon
