Yeah, I have a problem.

Haha-I think as long as it doesn't extend much beyond diapers I wouldn't call it a big problem

Sell 'em! I rarely miss anything as much as I think I will when I'm going back and forth on whether or not I should sell. You'll probably enjoy the paypal more than you will enjoy them sitting there not being used.

Re: Why do I hang on to diapers I dont like/use?!

Even I am saving dipes and my DDs are both PL'd and we don't even have any more babies in our future!
I think I'd rather hand them down to a close friend/family than sell them. I finally have a cousin that is pregnant and open to trying cloth....so it looks like she is first in line.

Re: Why do I hang on to diapers I dont like/use?!

Ones that I hated how they snapped (side snaps, ugh) or fit, I couldn't bring myself to take the time to sell, but donated a bunch FFS. Felt good too
But umm, yeah, I have dipes in many different styles & sizes cuz we foster & I never know what age kiddo is coming next. But, toddlers who haven't been cd in the past, tend to not like to be cd'd. Hmm, maybe I should part with my bigger ones?

I know this is true! I was going through old pics on my camera and there were some of diapers I didn't even remember owning!

LOL, I'm constantly decluttering everything else.

And honestly, I'd rather just give stuff away than sell it and it's the same with diapers.

I am a diaper hoarder as well. I always felt like I might need them later or something.

It's an obsession! I am feeling the need to collect diapers I have no need for!
