    ...went to tesco to get baby wipes & nappies as me and OH had just counted up our change box (£90 :thumbup:) so thought great we'll get like one of them boxes of wipes for £5 which give you 6 packs of wipes.

    Well we got there and saw the tesco 80 fragrance free baby wipes... I've heard good stuff about them and i'm not one of these mums-to-be who want to buy expensive wipes and nappies. I'll just take them if I hear good stuff about them.

    Well they had them a pack of 80 for 18p each.. so we spent £9 and got 50 packs. :dohh: We now have 4,000 wipes! Lol. Think I went slightly mad, the tesco check out lady must of thought we were expecting twins or something lol! :dohh::dohh:


    Anyone else gone crazy with stocking up?

    Even when the baby is older we will still be using wipes for sticky hands and dirty faces, I've got about 35 packs of wipes, my family think I'm mad but I just think well prepared! Are those wipes always 18p or were they a special offer? At the sainsburys baby event recently they were doing a pack of 100 nappy sacks for 5p, they sold out so quick so was there at 7am the next day, my partner told me I was crazy but I got 2500 nappy sacks for the same price as a pack of 150 cost in there!

    Yep there always going to be 18p unless they raise them up in the next few months! Been that price for a while though.
    That's really really good for nappy sacks at least your never going to run out! Talk about bargain.

    No it didn't say that they were on offer at all. It could be because it's online. :shrug:
    They have been 18p at my local tesco extra for at least two months, as I've seen them up there before when food shopping. The only sign it had was 'tesco's most popular'. and the price!
    They are the white packs, there are blue ones which are 80p but they are fragranced.

    Ive got 3 x box of 9 packs of pampers sensitive wipes in the garage, along
    with 10 packs of each size of pampers nappies up to size 4+
    I have bought them using vouchers when they have offers on, so ended up
    paying no more than about £1.50 per pack. Bargain!
