Ahh I missed a day! I felt like I had finally gotten “caught up” so I wanted to post once a day. And then I miss yesterday just 2 days in. Oh well, here I am now.
I’ve been super busy posting my cloth diapers for sale online. It’s quite a task I tell you. You have to sort through them all carefully, make sure you note any possible stains, velcro issues, elastic condition, etc. and then decide how much you want to charge. Ideally it would be nice if people would buy a whole group – like all of my small fuzzi bunz, all of my bum genius, etc. But that’s not what happens. People pick and choose (I can’t really blame them) two diapers and expect the prices you are asking to include shipping. Um, no. Did you forget how much shipping costs these days? Not to mention that Paypal takes at least $1 off every transaction. So no, it’s not really worth it to me to sell & ship you two almost brand new diapers for $15, when one new diaper usually goes for $18 + shipping alone at the online CD stores. Oh and I’ve had a couple people from Canada expect me to cover the $30 shipping too! They say “well we have to pay custom fees (or whatever it’s called)” Well yeah, I’m sorry but it’s NOT worth my time to package up all these diapers and take THAT much off my profit when I could wait and sell them to someone in the US and make a lot more money. I’m not just trying to get rid of my diapers, I’d like to actually make some money off them!
Anyways, that’s what I’ve been up to.
It’s a gorgeous day today so I already took the kids for a walk around the neighborhood. We live in a pretty hilly region so 1/2 the walk is uphill and it makes for a good workout, especially with pushing a stroller. I really enjoy it. Nathan has fun riding his scooter and Emily walks along side me, usually hanging onto the stroller (adding more to my work-out!)
