This is a best-case scenario as we all know for the messy diaper changes, we'll use more than 1 wipe and how many of us actually buy the refill packs of wipes instead of just going out and buying another tub of wipes every time we run out? Also, how many of us are actually going to order everything from an online discount store - when you run out in the middle of the night, it's a trip to your local WalMart, where prices are actually higher than the online discount store and you have to pay taxes on top of your purchase price!
