I pinned right through the rubber pants themselves, barbar... not the elastic waistband, and because I found it easier to pin right at the front so the pin was in plain sight and the first thing I reached for, the diaper pin always went through the front.

I'd just overlap the front of the rubber pants (like a diaper) before pinning... catching the diaper in-behind with the pin to help prevent the rubber pants from ripping/tearing prematurely.

Are you talking like a diaper? As in pin on each side?

Ok got you now. No I only pin the diaper on the side to the diaper to tighten up the rubber pants. I didnt want to do it on the front as I was worry it would cause discomfort on the child when she/ and later him laid on thier belly.

OK, I follow you now, barbar. Hmmm.. never thought about the discomfort to child with pin in front... though I folded diapers so bulky that the safety pin probably got lost in all the padding!

I used to be able to get several extra weeks out of a worn pair of rubber pants by pinning them.

it sure did beat buying them quite as often when one did this. I would keep the nicer ones when we went out, but around the house, it didn't hurt one bit.

Absolutely! Nicer ones for outings... stained/worn-out ones for around the house.

I feel a little guilty about this, but after canning up 4.5 pints of applesauce and putting all the sugar I could manage from the 10 lb bag my daughter bought into my daughter's canister, I took the last 2 cups of sugar back home with me. It was stingy and mean because I didn't ask her if she wanted it. I assumed her kitchen was too small, and it is, and that she didn't have another container for it, and she didn't, and in the bag the ants and ****roaches would have found it, and they would have. But I should have asked her. It was very stingy and mean and I am texting her now about it.
