Exclamation Trying to decide on a deal, help me be smart

I found 8 bum genius pocket-style cloth diapers with microfiber inserts on Craigslist in an area 3 hours away. All gender-neutral color covers (yellow, white, blue, sea foam green, etc.). Clean and sanitized (bleach-free), ready to use! She also has a half bag of cloth diaper detergent and some cloth changing pads that she us gonna throw in and all of it for 45 shipped . Problem is I really need nb diapers . I have 22 BG OS pockets 7 alva OS pockets 3 papoose OS pockets,1 grobaby OS pocket, 2 unknown OS pockets. 33 OS pockets all together and 24 prefolds. My husband said get em if I need them but technically I don't I need nb diapers of some sort or wet bags .Is my OS stash already big enough or do you think I should get them? I have to get back to her tonight

Re: Trying to decide on a deal, help me be smart

If it were me, I would probably get them if they're in good condition. It's a good price. But I'm really new to the world of cloth diapering.

Actually, now that I think about it, I'd only get them if they were 4.0s with snaps. Buuuut that's just me.

If you can spare the $45, I would get them. That's a great deal!

Do you currently have a baby or are you pregnant? Have you tried any of these? If you already have a baby/will use the diapers right away, I'd get them (I'd still wash and bleach them, too, fwiw). If you're pregnant and haven't used any of these pockets yet, I'd save the money and get newborn diapers.

Are they being shipped to you? I think if it were me I would just use the $45 towards some new born fluff.. If that is REALLY what you need

I would get them. Great deal and if you hate the pockets you can sell them.
