58. Cloth Diapers
Cloth diapers (the original rectangular ones) are not just for babies. Although we used them as actual diapers for our second child and saved a fortune in diapering expense, we also discovered multiple uses for them after the need for diapering. When the children were still in diapers, we used these as spit-up rags, changing cloths, and anywhere we needed a "clean" spot for the kids. Once the kids no longer needed these things, we discovered that cloth diapers make excellent cleaning rags and make amazing shoe polishing rags. We, also, discovered that they work very well for a cool cloth compress and they work well as a catch-all for sick people. They are very good seat covers (when that is needed) and they make great hand towels. They are so versatile that I buy at least one pack for everyone I know who is expecting, even if they are not planning to use them as diapers.
