Black Friday is a bit early late this year, with the big day landing on November 26, the day after American Thanksgiving.
Is Black Friday a Big Deal for Cloth Diaper Shopping?
OMG YES! Black Friday is by far the best cloth diaper shopping day of the year, and if the timing is right, and you have the budget, it is THE day to build your cloth diaper stash!
If you’re shopping for everyday things, you most likely think of Target or Walmart for Black Friday sales, but when it comes to Cloth Diapers, local retailers are the way to go!
While big box stores won’t often discount items that aren’t widely popular and will sell in large volumes (like cloth diapers), local cloth diaper shops live for these sales.

What Can I Expect?
The sales are always a bit different every year, but the trend in all the years passed since (this is my fourth Black Friday) has been for most retailers to offer anywhere from 20-60% off most items, and then they often throw in some “freebies” when you spend over a certain amount. So, for example, they might give you a wet bag, or a roll of liners if you spend $X and a free diaper if you spend $XX (this is just an example to show you how it normally works, the freebies can be epic some years, and just good others… we’ll all just have to wait and see what they are).
Most of the time, the discount on the diaper brands you really really want (think Thirsties and AppleCheeks) is about 15-25%, but the discounts on diaper packages, accessories, and sale
When Will the Sales Be Announced?
Unfortunately, Black Friday sale info is kept quiet until just a day or two before the event in most cases. Retailers don’t want people to not buy anything for the month leading up to Black Friday because they know the thing they want will be on sale.
