I reckon my nappies are worth approx £600 at the prices I paid for them (some are new, some preloved) and my wool stash (pre-BBM
) is about £400, plus then about another £300 for BBM goodies - so around £1,300 in total
I have bought and sold lots though, and mainly buy preloved so it'd be worth more than that for insurance purposes! I didn't actually buy any nappies during BBM, and I am including all my WAHM clothing in that total as that tends to have a resale value, unlike most high street bought clothing.
Since getting into wool I have pretty much stopped buying any high street baby clothes (apart from t-shirts) and I also wash less, so there is an offset there, plus I haven't bought myself any clothes since having DD as I still haven't lost all my pregnancy weight, so I know that I am spending on her instead of spending on myself so it's about more than just the value of the nappies or clothes iyswim? Would never tell DH how much I'd spent though, he'd think I was nuts
I have also rediscovered my sewing machine so i'm going to make DD some suntops and dresses, and have just bought some sock wool to try making myself some socks too - so it's now become about so much more than just nappies!That's what I keep telling myself anyway!
P.S. - Rachel, thanks for asking this, I'd been thinking about doing it for ages but wasn't sure if anyone would admit it or not!
