Does anyone have this problem?

I'm trying to get a business store up and running for diapers, but I can't get past the imperfections in my items. Every diaper I make has some tiny flaw, and it's usually only really visible to me, but I can't justify selling it, thus I throw it in my stash, and then it can't be sold. I know I am being way to anal, because some of my diapers are far better than a few that I have bought from other WAHM's, but I never feel that they are good enough. I only want to sell PERFECT!!! items. Please, tell me that you have this problem.

You could list them as seconds and sell them at a discounted price.
I so know what you mean. I drive my husband nuts with the way I nitpick our tshirts! I tell him I'm quality-control!

I think you should offer them as seconds, I know I wouldn't mind imperfections as long as they still did their job, plus since we're on a tight budget, cheaper diapers are always good. And some money is better than no money, if it's just going into your stash!!
Definately sell them as seconds. Or...maybe ask a few people to volunteer to buy them at a slightly discounted price, and have them tell you what they think of them. kwim? Maybe they're nice enough to sell as 'regulars' and you're just being to critical of yourself.

Thanks for the advice. Those sound like good ideas, and I think that on some things I may be being too critical. My husband thinks they look great (but guys are never as critical as women), but I have also taken them to play group and some of those women thought they looked awesome too! Anyway, I will probably sell some of them as seconds and some of them as regulars based on how many imperfections there are. Thanks ladies!
