I listed my diapers...

This has been the hardest decision ever. I really think its been holding me back on a lot of things. I wanted to like cloth. But it reminds me of when we had NO money. I CD'd DD completely from birth to potty training. We had nothing. I scrimped and saved and made and bought diapers. but now we're ok. We're out of debt, almost got enough down payment to buy our house. I like disposables But the guilt was killing me. I listed them and I have a couple bites. I'm giving them 1 month and then I'm donating them. I'm letting go of the guilt. Accepting the fact that we're done having kids.

Well the bites have disappeared and I'm starting to doubt. But I'll stay strong. Does any one know where I could donate these?

I'm selling/donating mine too I really wanted to CD foster babies but I had an unexpected dip in finances, and won't have the time to certify & devote to it for another few years. It was emotional. I casually mentioned to my boyfriend that I had listed them, and he smiled and said, "great! You'll get some extra cash for your needs!" and I burst into tears haha. He was trying to be encouraging, and had no clue I was "mourning" the loss of giving love to a foster kiddo who needs it...
