new or exclusively fsot?

i was wondering how you mamas feel about buying cloth dipes?

who buys exclusively brand new? exclusively FSOT? (if so is it new, almost new or used) or do you do a mixture of both? or mostly fsot and new when you can? and why is your preference what it is?


for me i mostly buy fsot and a few new ones when the price is right.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

I couldn't afford buying everything new. -Unless you count the fabric for my own dipes as new
I try to save $ where ever I can so for me it's mostly FSOT. I think in all this time that I CD (I stocked while being 7mo. preggo w/DS ) I've bought 5-8 items new, the rest was always from FSOT.

I get whichever I can afford, so if some nice brand new ones are on sale, I buy new, but I try mostly for FSOT/used stuff because it benifits the environment even more.

I start with FSOT, and if I like that particular diaper, then I will likely buy it new too.

We have been cloth diapering for almost 2 months now, and I bought my first new diapers last week. I did buy some CB inserts new several weeks ago. Pretty much, though, our whole stash is from FSOT.

I've got some nice new and never used deals on ebay.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

I buy mostly new, because I'm picky about the condition they're in. I've actually gotten burned on a couple of used diapers, and those were cases where it wouldn't have been that much more expensive to buy new. And FSOT diapers that are good deals are usually gone by the time I read the post anyway.

As per my DH I am only allowed to use brand new, unused dipes for our children. I do try to buy on FSOT if possible, but I have also purchased from WAHMs.

Ditto this.. I started off buying mostly used, with a new diaper here and there, and then I got burned pretty bad on ebay (items in much worse condition than stated) and also by a few scammers (non-receipt) and it made me very wary... so eventually I just started buying mostly new, but since I wasn't in desperate need of new diapers, it was easy to just pick up one or two here and there, and spread out the expense over time.
.
Probably about a third of our current stash was purchased used.. everything else was new.

Most of our fuzzi bunz were new, but some were bought used. Most of other dipes/covers were gently used.
