Need an opinon! FB's on sale! Should I buy?

Hi ladies! I am due in December and want to CD and have choosen to use FB's. I was looking for package deals online and on http://www.ittybittybabybunz.com/ she is closing and has a 12 pk of FB's for sale for $155 with 12 inserts it is $161. The cheapest that I have seen online is $167. Should I get them now? I'm a little hesitant because this is an impulse buy and my baby isn't here yet. I am not even completely sure if I really want to CD. I can always resale them if I don't use them right? Should I buy them?

I think her inventory answers your question for you. She is all sold out of smalls and only three mediums left.

This would have been a good deal cause these would have then been $13.50 each with free shipping, but their inventory link shows they have no smalls left in stock

Great places to buy FB's that come with better inserts than the MOE ones and have free shipping on pockets all the time, and discounts on package deals for $13.95 each are:

Thank you ladies. I ran that idea by my mother and she said that $161 was too much. Not too much for CD's but too much for me. I'm a teen and I really want to CD but I have to find cheaper diapers.

Well, the initial price might be a bit much but the nice thing about FB's is that they have great resale value. And they will save you money in the end since those darn sposies are expensive!

If you're not opposed to buying used there are always lots of FB's for sale in the FSOT board here, and you could probably snag some with inserts preferably for about $10 each or maybe less including shipping

And good on you for wanting to CD

It would have been a great deal, but as they said - no more inventory. The initial price does seem high, but it is worth it over time.

BTW - I am expecting my first in December as well, and I have my stash all purchased...so it isn't really an "impulse". I'd say more planning!

Thanks ladies! I made a post in the ISO board and I am looking through the FSOT boards.

YOu could always try miracle diapers. There is probably a waiting list, but it might help. www.miraclediapers.com
