Re: new or exclusively fsot?

First off I am surprised about the bad buying used experiences. I have bought alot used and have been happy so far. Our stash is 50/50. I refuse to spend 22$ cdn a diaper for FB (new) I would rather buy them here. I don't mind buying new one size b/c the value is there. Also there are some things that never come up on fsot like snap ez pocket trainers. They are expensive but so worth it.
The new babys stash so 50/50 so far but I have found a cheaper wahm pocket so if I like them the whole stash will be made new with them.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

Hmmm i buy mostly new ~ but i will buy a used dipe IF its a good deal cheaper than a new one AND if its in EUC with NO stains or defects. Most things that i have bought used on here have been in the stated condition but there have been a couple times i feel as though the dipe(s) were misrepresented. I'm really leary of buying a pocket or AIO type dipe used cause i'm worried about the pul still being waterproof. I'm not as worried about fitteds for that reason but my dd has VERY skinny thighs and good stretchy elastic is a must for us so i always specifically ask if the elastic is LIKE NEW. I'd say our stash is probly 85% new 15% used

Ditto this.. I started off buying mostly used, with a new diaper here and there, and then I got burned pretty bad on ebay (items in much worse condition than stated) and also by a few scammers (non-receipt) and it made me very wary... so eventually I just started buying mostly new, but since I wasn't in desperate need of new diapers, it was easy to just pick up one or two here and there, and spread out the expense over time.

Probably about a third of our current stash was purchased used.. everything else was new.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

I started CD in Feb. I bought all used from ebay. (I didn't know DS existed or other swap boards, then.) Did buy some that were only washed, etc or worn once. Once I found DS, then I bought more. I usu. buy my dipes from $8-$11 a diaper WITH shipping. And almost all of them have been in excellent condition. I can't justify paying $14 + shipping for a new one when a barely used is almost half the price. I have only bought our 8 BG new (because we were given money as a baby gift.) and 1 superstar. Everything else is used. I am CD 2 dd's in 2 sizes and 2 systems. And I promised dh I wouldn't go overboard with spending. So it's used for us!
If I found something I REALLY liked, I might. (Like I recently purchased our 1st Luxe wool pull on cover. They sell for $33 and most are reselling for about the same. That I might purchase new, but I haven't figured out this stalking thing! LOL!)
That's my
