I always manage to recoup at least half of what I paid for EUC diapers. There's certainly nothing wrong with selling them for a decent price to help fund the next size! Those buying your diapers still save money as well.

Buying "popular" dipes helps for re-couping, IMO. As does buying dipes used instead of new (kind of like buying a car, the first owner takes the biggest loss).

I probably should search this topic elsewhere.... but......
Can you only use PayPal to print postage labels if you have your own mail scale?

TIA! Sorry for getting slightly OT!

If you are using flat rate packaging then you do not need a scale. Otherwise, yes you need your own scale. But they can be found/purchased on Ebay for just a few bucks so it's a great investment if you'll be selling frequently

Re: How do they make any $$?

I've done things like that. One I shipped a bunch of flats and I made $2. The way I see it is, if it's just going to sit there and not be used, I might as well make something off of it, even if it's just a tiny bit. Plus, I would never make money from used disposables so I just look at it as a perk of cloth, no matter how much I make.

Re: How do they make any $$?

I have a TON of brand new BG Aios in Large that I dont think I will ever use since my LO is sort of tiny for his age. I bet he will potty train before then... so I will want to sell those. I just wish I wasnt going to take such a hit.

I would imagine once they sell out on Cottonbabies they will be worth more on here than they currently are, if you were able to wait a bit.

I use my $15 kitchen scale for this and have never had an issue.

I just want to suggest you try your local options first - local messageboards, local selling sites, Craigslist, etc. If that doesn't work then you can always sell here.
