FFS vs. Miracle diapers

How do you decide what to do with your old stuff you don't want to sell?

I have some stuff I was going to do a mass FFS soon...but now I'm wondering if miracle dipes would be a better option?

Re: FFS vs. Miracle diapers

I think it just depends on your personally. I don't always have the $ to send to MD so I may offer it FFS. But if I have the PP & things aren't as tight, then I can send to MD.

GL. Either option is great & someone will thank you!

Re: FFS vs. Miracle diapers

FFS is good for new cloth diaperers too. I was able to get a few different kinds really inexpensively (although I don't think they were technically FFS, since there were different prices for different dipes) on the FSS board. This way I can try out a few different kinds and see what works well for us. At the normal $15 ea, there's just no way I could have afforded (is that a word?) it. Mind you, I didn't consider cding at all until I joined this board! lol But that's another topic for another time!

I think if you did ffs and stated that you would really like it to go to a mama who really needed it.

Re: FFS vs. Miracle diapers

I would do md. That way you know it goes to a good home. I would wanna know it went where really needed. I sent some stuff off when the free cd board was really active. I was being scammed by someone who was taking ffs and reselling. Apparenlt this happens alot round these boards.

Re: FFS vs. Miracle diapers

I am a little late here, but wanted to comment on the last post. We just had a diaper drive in March and it was awesome. We knocked out many applicants, but we get more applicants everyday. Just something to think about. I am not trying to guilt anyone into sending them to us. It is comepletely your choice. Just stating the facts.

Oh, and there is a drive coming for mamas who can sew (starting in July and sponsored by diaper decisions). www.diaperdecisions.com
