Be honest...are you a diaper Capitalist?

If you got a *screaming* deal on a HTF diaper, would you resell it for a profit? What if it was a gift (or free to you somehow)? Would it matter how much profit? If not, do you judge others who do resell for profit?

If it was a diaper that somehow came to me, that I couldn't or wouldn't use, then yes I would sell if for what I could get for it.

I wouldn't go out of my way to buy something cheap and sell it for more though.

This exactly. I don't buy things I don't intend to use, no matter how cheap. I figure there is someone out there that NEEDS the good deal. And, yes, I do judge a bit when people buy things just to resell.

That said, a friend's mom did that growing up to support them. She couldn't make ends meet otherwise. I am trying to keep in mind that resellers might be in the same position. But I feel for our financial position it would be wrong to snatch up all the good deals.

I don't care what people do with what they own, if they can sell something and make a profit more power to them! I don't see why diapers are different from any other product we could make money on.

ETA: I should say that if I got something FFS, I would pass it on for the same.

If I came across anything at well below market value, and knew I could sell it for a profit, yes I would absolutely do so! Diapers included. I have no problem with others doing this either.

This. As for getting something for free and then to sell it later...depends what it is and why it was given to me. IMO though, once a product is yours, it's up to you what you do with it.

I would be bummed out if someone got something from me for free and then sold it for profit. I would not do that. Generally if someone was generous enough to give me something i try to pass on the good will to someone else. Also, I just don't have enough time to buy things cheap and then sell them.
