Good point. I think new CL is great for stuff like prefolds that are heavy to ship.

Re: What is average resale value of CDs?

Things like prefolds hold great value, because they can easily be in great condition, less on them to wear out. Diapers with snaps hold more value because velcro has a shorter life. Then you mostly just have to judge the elastic.

Newborn diaps can go for more because they aren't used for as long.

I find I have to replace velcro diaps (or in theroy just replace velcro) about once a year for moderate to high use (what I would consider an average stash).

At about that year point the elastic is pretty stretched in my opinion but not usually leaking.

Please don't by into the idea of buying more diapers so they take longer to wear out and will sell for more in the end. Buy what you need. If you use it up, then give it away free for shipping.

I'm so frustrated w/ velcro. My lo has been wearing them for 9 months and already, I need to replace the velcro on several of my dipes. As a pp mentioned, snaps hold more of their value than velcro. Wish I had known that in the beginning. Only plus to velcro is it is a lot easier to get on a squirmy baby than snaps.

Ive only doen a few Ebay sales and none with this baby so its deffiently been a while I then found the sales pretty comparable with DS except they were more willing to cover shipping.. CL around here is a huge joke and no way will people pay anywhere close to 75-80% even with NIP stuff.. More like 20% it is crazy.
