Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

Almost always buy new...unless it is advertised as used once or something...I've just been burned too many times buying used.
Wool is a little different... (to me anyway) I'm a little more likely to buy used wool if it's something hard to get...like Elbee WBs.

Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

Since I just started CDing, I have been buying used to see which dipes I like best. I try to get gently used dipes. I have been buying some new dipes that don't seem to be easy to get or I never see on the FSOT board. I will buy new as soon as I figure out which dipes work best for DS.

Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

Sometimes! I have got a ton of here to use on Lilly and they have all been in great condition so it keeps me buying more used. There have been some that I can't pass up buying new because they are customs or just too darn cute. I never take into consideration resale value. If I were to do that it would be that one diaper that gets destroyed.

Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

I'd say 90% of my stash is used. I can't justify buying new when I can get two for the price of one used.

Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

I buy new MOST of the time. I have bought a couple used dipes. but mostly new. In the beginning I bought them based on what I could resell them for, but then I just started buying things to try. And now I buy things that will WORK for us (so I have a great stash of several BBL's). In the beginning it was a big deal to me that I get a high return, but now to me much more important to just hae something that works that we LOVE to use!

I do have a tester dipe coming though. My only new one! Maybe one tester for each baby depending on if the WAHM has time! Yippee!

Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

I buy new most of the time- I guess, for me, I'd rather spend a few extra bucks for a new FB than pay $12 for a used one, but I would pay like $10 for an EUC one. I buy used w hen its something I want to try or cant' find often. I bought a used PW and I love it! Its hard to get your hands on new ones, so I'd buy used again if I have the chance.

Re: Poll- How often do you buy new?

I buy new almost all the time. I just bought some used PWP fitted and Crankypants wool here and waiting on the fluff in the mail so we'll see if I buy used again after this experience.

I buy new b/c I don't know if evertone takes as much care in laundering their dipes as I do b/c I know they will either be reused with #2 in the future or resold. I am almost anal retentive with the laundry so I know that my stuff is always in EUC. :-)
