My Most Memorable Experience Buying Online

Self picture taken in early 2004 when I started buying online
I started buying online in 2004 through one of the biggest direct selling company in Malaysia. I was very excited when I received my first product ordered through online that was delivered right to my bachelor house at that time. Since then I started to have confidence and believe buying things or shopping via online and most of product that I use at home I order through online such as dish wash, laundry detergent, floor cleaning, window cleaning, metal cleaning, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, supplements, cloth, stationery and a lot more!
However, my most memorable experience buying online is buying cloth diapers for my second kid, my beloved son Carl Adam. It was my wife who excite me to buy it from online shops including www.deapache.com, www.lunatots.com, www.sarakids.com, and sofeababywear.blogspot.com. So far we have 2o pieces cloth diapers that we conveniencely use everyday for our cute little baby.

We never use cloth diapers before. We are using disposable diapers for my first daughter Damia as most people using it. We use disposable diapers for Damia since her born until she is almost 4 years old.
My daughter Damia is trying to put his brother's cloth diapers on her teddy bear :)

The average usage for her is 8 pieces per day after born until about 2 months old and reduces about 6 pieces per day up to 2 years old and going down to about 4 pieces per day until she stop using it at age 4 years old. So total about 4 years since her born is 7,320 pieces at average cost RM0.60 per piece and it cost RM4,392.
Therefore, we do the following cost evaluation for cloth diapers for comparison:
1 cloth diapers = RM20 (online)
20 cloth diapers = RM400 that can last for more than 4 years.
So I save RM3,992!!!
Say I need to buy 20 replacements after 2 years using:
Additional 20 cloth diapers: RM400
Plus 20 pieces earlier RM400 = RM800 for 4 years usage.
And I still save RM3,592!!!
Says you only use disposable diapers for 3 years with total 5,880 pieces with cost RM3,528.
So you still save RM3,128 for 20 cloth diapers or RM2,728 for 40 cloth diapers!!!
And most importantly I save environment by not using 7,320 pieces (4 years usage) or 5,880 pieces (3 years usage) disposable diapers!!
* I pieces disposable diapers thickness is about 0.5 inch (0.042ft ) if 5,880 to 7,320 pieces equal 15 to 19 storey building!!!
My amateur simple illustration to show the usage of disposable diapers for our daughter Damia for 4 years (the disposable diapers in the photo is just 80 pieces. You can imagine how 7,320 pieces looks like! )
That makes my change much more meaningful that is save our planet by not using unrecyclable disposable diapers! Plus harmful chemical (urine + absorbent chemical material inside disposable diapers) contains in the disposable diapers after you dispose it (exclude other material in our garbage as we are not well separate our garbage.
Even most of the time I'm the one who do the pre-cleaning before wash it using washing machine, I'm very proud to do it as one of my mission to save environment beside save my pocket money- I don't mind wash it!
Since I am Metallica fan and AC Milan fan and I am going to create another memorable online shopping experience, here are my upcoming items that I wanted to purchase for my son through online shopping :

Upcoming rompers for my son that I'm going to buy from Milan Store (store.acmilan.com)

As we are sharing the advantages of using cloth diapers that make our online buying become our most memorable experience buying online, we are looking forward to invest in online business in the near future as one of our mission to save our planet.
