Is this a good deal?

I am new to cloth diapering and don't have a ton of money but my husband and I want to try out a few different styles of diapers. I also am one of those people who tries to get the best deal possible. I have realized that some of these cloth diapers are expensive but want to know what would be considered a "good deal".

I can get 2 brand new best bottom diapers for $25 shipped and 3 x-small fuzzibunz & 2 swaddlebees simplex all used for $43 shipped.

Are these good deals or should I hold out for something better?

I do have some time as baby won't make an entrance until May.

Do the best bottoms come with any inserts or are they just the shells? It sounds like it might be a good deal, softbums are pricey. The pocket/aio deal seems okay.

I should say that I am not actively buying at this time though. And I'd want the used one is pretty good condition for even that price!

I think that's a pretty good deal on the new best bottoms, even if you are just getting shells without inserts (I believe they normally run $17-18 at at full price). For the other items, it depends on condition and whether you are getting sized or one size simplex. If in brand new or very good used condition I think that's a good deal, especially if they are os simplex.

it also depends on if the simplex are v1 or v2. And also do the FB come with inserts? And also what condition are they in and make sure you see pics. Seems like a pretty good deal!
