WWYD? Sell dipes or save to use later?

This is totally hypothetical as we aren't pregnant again...but dd right now has 21 Medium Fb's, we have been using them for a month on the tightest setting and I am sure she will be in these for a long, long time. We plan to have another dc when Alex is 2 or 3...so my question is do you think I'd be better off selling her Mediums on FSOT and buying new Mediums for DC#2? I just wonder if this stash is going to be in the best condition in (at a minimum) 2 yrs.

Re: WWYD? Sell dipes or save to use later?

I think it really depends on how long you use them. I had some large FB that I saved from when my ds was in diapers (5 years ago). I sold them to buy some newborn, but I very well could have saved them for my dd. I kept my diapers in a plastic tub in the garage (in the TX heat) and they didn't have ANY damage whatsoever. So, I think it is really up to you. I would probably keep the ones I really like and sell the rest.

I also wonder...what's going to be new in the world of pocket diapers in 2 years? Am I going to want my 21 Fuzzi Bunz that I've saved? I wouldn't think I'd be able to sell them at THAT point...Hmm.

Good point! I ventured beyond FB with my second. Also, I would have gotten LOTS more for them had I sold them when we were finished CDing my son. Just think of the money you could make selling them on ebay! You might have $$ for a whole new stash!

But I'm personally not a 'horder' anyhow, if we're done w/a size, out it goes for sale.

Re: WWYD? Sell dipes or save to use later?

We are in the same position and many of our dipes are girly so will be sold if we have a boy next. If there's something I can't use now I sell it. If I really love it, I put it away for the next dc whether its girly or not. I'm sure you're right that there will be more modern "better" dipes in the future, I never really thought about that. It just seems like there will be more of a savings if I keep the dipes I love now to use with #2 baby and if we don't have a girl next I would sell the girly faves to buy new ones for dc #2 (b/c that will be it for us!!) Hopefully in 2 yrs or so they will still be worth something

I plan on saving all my dipes with the exception that I sold some of the girly ones.

If I were real close to TTC, then I'd hold onto them. Otherwise, I'd sell them.

Re: WWYD? Sell dipes or save to use later?

We are keeping all ours for the next baby. We CD for financial reasons first, and health for baby a close 2nd. So we are ok with all the money we are forking out (making us save only a little bit with newborns and smalls) knowing that the next one will be mostly free!

We figure he'll be in his Ms for a long time, so we plan to buy Ms new and are now adding in bG! for transitions n such.

I assume they will not be in the BEST shape with the next one, but they ought to be functional or functional with a bit of repair work. Either way they will be the bulk of our stash and we can buy a few as some of them wear out if need be. All in all MUCH cheaper than a whole new stash and selling off each size to buy the next isn't fun for me.

Plus we have a boy and figure if the next is a girl we'll want to get a few dipe/dress sets or at least a few girly colors.

We're plannng on having a few more, so I'm saving everything. The more kids we have, the less money I will have to re-buy dipes. YK?
