Re: Am I just cheap....

I just like new diapers. I'm willing to forgo the variety and stick with a few things. Most of the diapers I've bought new have been in packages or on sale (or both) with free shipping.

Re: Am I just cheap....

I honestly think that itis silly t expect to get more than 1/2 for any used dipe unless it is new and unused! I very rarely buy from FSOT unless I find a good deal because just like a new car, when you drive it off the lot the value is cut in half. I feel the same for cloth. It is great to resell and get back some of what you paid but many mama's only expect to loose a small percent and that makes no sense to me. So if you are cheap then I am too!!! Danni

Re: Am I just cheap....

people are just trying to get as much back for their items as possible, usually if they don't sell they drop their prices

but I agree $1 or $2 less for something mass produced is silly, now some of the sought after WAHM harder to get stuff I can see doing that with.

On the flip side, I'm selling a few things, mainly NB stuff. Most is very lightly used and in good condition. I really think it just depends on how long it's been used. I would def not charge a lot for my toddler's dipes that we use all the time but if used just a little, I would charge maybe 75%. Shipping is darned expensive nowadays for packages.

Just my 2cents...

Re: Am I just cheap....

When it's a dollar or two off and very used, then I pass it by. But a dollar or two off retail for a practically new diper is fine with me. And remember that shipping for fitteds and inserts is more expensive than for pockets and covers.

I really think it depends on the condition of the diaper.

that said, where are all these free shipping sites you're talking about!?

And I totally understand trying to make as much money as possible too....but there are limits to it all right...I mean....I have yet to find a wonderful wahm product to fall in love with...so maybe thats why Im a little partial!!

Re: Am I just cheap....

Yeah, I tend to skip over the really overpriced ones.

However, $1-2 off a diaper that was only used/washed once and still looks new is okay by me. It's not a great deal, but I do not think it is the same as a car and should be half. JMO. Economics is all about supply/demand. You only get what someone is willing to pay, and someone is obviously willing to pay that since they are selling for that price.

All that said, I never charge much for my diapers, and they are in great shape. I have to price lower since I'm not a regular poster here, and I haven't bought/sold a lot here yet.

Re: Am I just cheap....

unless it is something I can't live without, i will wait till the post runs a while and if it still there chances are they are asking way to much and might be willing to take another offer! Yes some mama's ask to much for their diapers, but I am sure they are trying to get back some of what they spent!
