Re: Who WOULDN'T pay $2 more for new??

So how much would you pay for a euc/vguc pocket? I say $10 is about my limit for used...

I mostly buy new for that reason, but sometimes I'll buy off fsot for something harder to get.

Re: Who WOULDN'T pay $2 more for new??

We mostly buy new just because they're gonna' go through more than one kid. Unless I'm saving $4 or so in a NB or small size, I buy it new. In those sizes (especially NB), I'm not AS picky about 'em being used because they are used for such a short amount of time.

Re: Who WOULDN'T pay $2 more for new??

I would think most new cd'ing mamas would pay a "too high amount for used" because they are unaware of the prices for new for that certain dipe. And I am speaking from experience...I have been buying dipes like crazy (expecting first baby any day now) and at the beginning, I would buy ones that I am sure now were overpriced. Just because I didn't know and wasn't sure of the different types, assumed everyone was very honest with regards to condition of the dipes, etc.

I bought some kissaluvs fitteds some time ago from a different site for probably... $6 a piece. Thought they would be great, but now realize that they were probably used through at least two families. They aren't fluffy at all, and I am worried they won't absorb as well as new. But i thought the price was good and that they would last forever or something. Now I wish I had just bought the new ones. Ah well, live and learn.

Also...I will easily pay the used price if the design is way cute or something you dont see very often. For example...I would pay a higher amount for something girly with dogs on it. Why can't I find anything girly with dogs???

Re: Who WOULDN'T pay $2 more for new??

this is why i never buy used anymore i did at first but now i realize i rarely use the used diapers i bought cause theyre not as nice as the ones i a bought new for exampled i bought a used fb and if i would have spent an extra $1.50 i would have gotten a brand new one plus free insert and i know what im getting. Buying used i guess is just not my thing i hate buying something and not exactly knowing the condition of the item you know

I always google if it is something I haven't heard of before or can't remember the new price so I can be sure that I am getting a good deal. If anyone were to watch my buys they would see I tend to only buy $5 or less/item used. LOL, it just seems to be my "magic number" .

Re: Who WOULDN'T pay $2 more for new??

If I buy used dipes they have to be at least half or less of the original cost, they're used! Now, I would pay more for used wool. As long as it seems to be in good condition. I guess I might pay more for something that is highly desirable used, like an embroidered mutt, but I usually talk myself out of that.
I wouldn't buy FBs used unless I knew the seller I think. You can get some pretty good package deals for the 'name brand' dipes.
