How To: Successfully Potty Train On A Budget!

Posted by Amanda Jenner

Potty training is a significant milestone in a child's development, but it can also bring additional expenses for parents. From buying training pants to investing in various potty training aids, the costs can quickly add up. However, with some strategic planning and budget-friendly alternatives, you can successfully potty train your child while saving money. In this blog, we'll explore five effective ways to save money during the potty training journey, with a special focus on the versatile and cost-effective solutions available.



  1. Embrace the Versatility of My Carry Potty

My Carry Potty is a smart investment that can save you money in various ways. Its durable and reusable design eliminates the need for having multiple potties!  Moreover, its portability ensures that you have a reliable and familiar potty wherever you go, reducing the need to rely on expensive alternatives while on-the-go. With My Carry Potty, you get a versatile and budget-friendly solution that simplifies potty training both at home and outside.

  1. Use Training Pants

Disposable training pants/pull-ups might seem convenient, but they can be costly in the long run. Instead, consider using cloth training pants. Not only are they more eco-friendly, but they also prove to be a cost-effective solution. Cloth training pants are washable and reusable, saving you money on continuous purchases of disposable options. 

  1. Go Commando at Home

At home, you may decide to let your child go commando! Ditching the nappies and training pants for a short period each day can help your child understand their body's signals better and speed up the potty training process. While accidents may happen initially, going commando saves you money on diapers and allows your child to build a stronger connection with the potty. This may not be for everyone though, especially if your whole house is carpeted! 

  1. DIY Potty Training Rewards

Instead of purchasing expensive stickers or rewards, consider creating your own DIY potty training reward system. Use simple and inexpensive incentives like colorful stickers, a fun progress chart, or a small treat as a reward for successful potty trips. This approach not only saves money but also adds a personal touch to the process. Head to your local discount shop to find cheaper alternatives! 

  1. Utilise Free Resources and Online Guides

There are numerous free resources available to support parents during the potty training journey. Take advantage of online guides, blogs, and videos that offer valuable tips and strategies for successful potty training. By educating yourself with free resources, you can confidently navigate the process without the need for costly training courses.


Potty training doesn't have to be a financial burden. By implementing these cost-effective tips, you can successfully potty train your child while saving money along the way. Embrace the versatility of My Carry Potty, use cloth training pants, and using free guides such as our blog! With a little creativity and resourcefulness, you can achieve potty training success without breaking the bank.
