I for one am glad they hold their value because when I'm done diapering I'll get a portion of my investment back.

It's okay to be cheap, but don't fault everyone else for taking advantage of every deal they can find even if it's only $1 or $2.

Im not annoyed with any of it....Im just posting a thread stating that I couldnt understand why a person would try to sell for more than what they paid on used items. Im glad that I might make a few bucks back too when all is said and done....but Im not trying to make a profit here....and I feel that some people are. And by profit...I also mean...getting every cent back after using. Im not faulting anyone either...if thats their "thing" than they can pay whatever they want to for these dipes.

Re: Am I just cheap....

Why do people worry about this? If you don't like someone's price, or think it's too high, then don't buy it. You can offer less, they might say no. Threads like these always come up and it's usually the same people complaining about FSOT prices.

I don't think it's unreasonable to start asking a few dollars below new for an EUC item that's only been used once or twice when it includes shipping. I almost always buy new and that means I might buy something that everyone is raving about but it doesn't work for me. So should I lose a ton of money and stick on FSOT for super cheap because it didn't work for me? Should I sell things for a lot less than I paid just because I know there are people looking in FSOT that want cheap items and they may get annoyed with me when they see my listing? If it's practically new, why not try to recoop most of what I paid? If a person wants cheap, then they don't have to buy it.

Re: Am I just cheap....

Wow....I really didnt want this to turn into one of those threads!! Anyway.....I was just stating that some people are trying to make a profit!! Selling for higher than actual purchase price....adding shipping...and adding pp fees....I think thats ridiculous. I sometimes feel bad for people getting screwed over like that....but then I feel its their responsibility to "research" soooo to the people who have the money and are willing to pay full price for used items......more power to you!! I just wont do it.
