Newb Mom here again. It’s no secret that I am the Queen of Craigslist when it comes to buying baby stuff. Babies grow out of everything so quickly that there is always a plethora of stuff available on Craigslist, and typically people price it to move since they just want it gone. Here is an example of some stuff I have gotten and the prices:

  1. Baby Einstein jumper (music doesn’t work but the lights do). Paid $5 – Retails for $100
  2. Activity Table, perfect condition. Paid $15 – Retails for $50
  3. Graco double stroller, older but in excellent condition. Paid $15 – Retails for $125
  4. Step 2 playhouse, missing 2 rails (not really needed). Paid $10 – Retails for $300

So in all I’ve paid under $50 for $575 in baby gear. That’s a savings of $525. Crazy right? All it takes is time to look, some research, some basic safety, and some cleaning up. (more…)
