3rd Trimester

i love ebay.

i just won 30 0-3 carters onesies for $6.99 including shipping.

i went crazy at the beginning of the pregnancy buying bigger sized clothes because i figured people would get the smaller sizes, but it really didn't turn out that way. we got more "stuff" rather than clothes [fine by me].

im all about bargain shopping.

anyone else not ashamed to buy used?

Re: i love ebay.

  • ME!  I've bought a ton of stuff at garage sales.  I'm picky about quality (I won't buy anything with stains or other issues) and price (I'm cheap), but totally fine with buying used :)
  • I thought I was going to be a lot more picky than I am, but I'm all about buying used now! I got all our bottles and nipples off ebay (300+ pieces, all Avent for $35 including shipping) and I got the breast pump I really wanted off ebay, too (Avent Isis IQ duo for $85 with shipping). I'm all about buying used now!
  • I loooooooooooove Ebay too. For some reason, I didn't even think to look for baby clothes on Ebay until a few months ago - probably a good thing! Danger! Smile

    Between thrift stores and Ebay, I have a TON of clothes from 0-6 months. Since we don't have laundry in our apartment, I wanted to have extra of the basics (onesies, rompers, etc.) so I wouldn't have to worry about washing them all the time. We've received some clothes as gifts, but I'm definitely happy I bought things secondhand.

    Plus, even though I have gifts, it's really nice to have picked some things out myself - without feeling guilty over price tags, since he'll only wear these clothes for 3 seconds.

  • I don't buy new, period, unless its a specific thing we need. Otherwise, I buy at garage sales, at consignment shops, ebay...etc. We don't have a lot of money, and I don't see the sense in buying brand new stuff (excluding a car seat... but I would have bought it off of someone I knew, so that I would have known that it hadn't been in a car wreck).

    this.

  • Most of my son's clothes were bought at Goodwill. They look brand new and I could never afford to buy all these brand names at full price. He'll be better dressed than I am!

    I got Baby Gap, Gymboree, OshKosh, Baby Disney, stuff like that all for $1.99 per outfit or $0.99 per onesie.

    I love eBay too though- I just bought some nursery decor and a carseat fleece cover there today, and I bought my bedding set there a few months ago.

    Right? I was so psyched about it because they're SOOO ridiculously expensive brand new, but this has nipples, the rings, caps, bottles, all sorts of stuff. And the bottles are in 3 or 4 different sizes, so they'll "grow" with LO.

    Nice snag on the clothes, btw!

  • Ive been yard saling all summer long and I have so many cute clothes.  I found so many that only went through one little girl and they are in such good shape because babies grow out of stuff so quickly.  I too am picky no stains or overly washed, etc. stuff but I am very satisfied with all the money I have saved and my baby is going to be one well dressed little girl!
