Talk me down!

I am entering my last trimester with what will be our last baby. We have a nice stash of covers and trifolds here already. Problem is, in addition to being a minimalist, I am also a bit OCD about uniformity. It has always bothered me that our trifolds are not all the same brand, color, or size (minor variations among what I bought vs what I made). They are also not uniform in number.

I found an awesome sale on organic prefolds. I could buy a stash of 36 xsmall, 30 small, and 24 medium for $150 shipped with a free box of detergent thrown in to boot. They shrink to the same measurements as my trifolds, and they will be all the SAME. I know, I know, I'm a weirdo .

But I have trifolds already. Functionally they are fine except: 1) my smalls are too short and it drove me crazy with my last baby, and 2) some of the edges are slightly fraying because my serger is a little spazzy. But I don't really need new ones. But I want them. But listing and selling and shipping would be a pain, IF I could even find buyers. But I want everything to match.

Okay, I know the answer just from typing this out, but feel free to remind why I shouldn't buy more.

My Mood:
You don't want to buy them. Seriously! the trifolds you have probably won't sell. BST is really slow now. Like everywhere. That should be enough of a reason to not buy them. (If money is an issue that is). If money isn't a problem, then I guess you have new unpaper towels.

If you have extra money go for it, just be prepared to end up just donating your current stash.
