I posted here before, and now I can't find it...

Anyway, I can get Alvas on the site for less than 3ppd to 5ppd a piece, so I am looking for cheaper than that, if possible. I just don't want to wait 3-4 weeks to get them in the mail. Would like to buy multiple, if I can. I have figured out that these are the diapers that work best for us, so I want more. One size... I have a boy, so would prefer boy-ish colors. Have plenty of solids, but prints would be great, too! Just got the white with the skulls on it in the mail, and I LOVE IT.

Spam me. Pictures/price for all would be GREAT!

Re: I want your alvas!

Hey, I don't have any extra Alvas...just wondering how you can get them for $3-$5ppd each? I paid more than that through the co-op (after considering fees and shipping). Thanks!

You might have better luck posting in ISO. Lots of times mama's browse there to offer things they have for sale

I'm in a local crunchy mama's co-op through facebook. When they run these diaper co-ops we get them for about $3 each and don't pay shipping since it is local.

Re: I want your alvas!

I don't see how you can get them any cheaper unless you buy locally or FFS.
How much cheaper do you want to pay for a $3 diaper? I'm just honestly curious. I mean, that's pretty cheap.
Plus, if you want faster shipping then you'll have to pay a bit more for shipping.

I just bought one on the site not too long ago for $4.79. Another was only $3.55. The most expensive one is the skull one I got, and it was only $5.79. I order from www.alvababy.com.

Uhhh, it takes 4 weeks to get an Alva from their website. I can't imagine them taking more than that to get to me, from anywhere in the US.

And if I buy a diaper for $3, I am not going to sell that same USED diaper for $3. So... that's how I expect to get it cheaper. A lot of the time, people don't sell Alvas, because they are already so cheap to begin with, that you usually can't make anything selling them. But I love them, I just don't want to wait 4 weeks for them to get to me.

I am not asking to pay $2 for a $20 diaper. I am asking to pay less than $3 for a $4-$6 diaper. Not looking for a handout, looking for cheap diapers that I can use. Thanks, though.

I guess I got confused, because I looked and only saw ISO/IHA, and I don't have anything to trade, except PP.

Moved this over to the ISO section for you

ISO/iha is a sub forum of ISO.
