Well we're in an apartment, when we used the stroller a lot we just kept it in the trunk of our car... then when we weren't using it quite as often, we stored it in our hall closet (we have a Chicco Liteway so it folds up much smaller than a full sized/travel system stroller).
If we lived in a house, I'd be leery about keeping it in the garage but I'm a bug/spider freak so I'd probably keep it in a foyer closet.
agerstner:I had thought about leaving it in the trunk but where do the groceries go then? I'm an over thinker lol.
nykkolhooks:I'll only be using ours for running, so it's waiting patiently by the the front door. Also, a question for those of you that drive suv's, because I'm just curious. Will you store stroller in the trunk? I use mine for groceries, cargo... Etc and don't know what I'd do if I had to give up that space for a stroller.
I usually have one of ours in the cargo area - right now it's the Babytrend jogger. Our other stroller is a bigger Graco. I set it up on it's side so it doesn't take up as much space. I pack the groceries around it. We have a Highlander, so we have plenty of space. When I used to use my mom's Escape, we sometimes put the groceries in the back seat.
Whichever stroller is not in the car is in our front closet.
We have a CRV and a huge selling feature for us was that the cargo area had two levels. So we put the stroller in, snap the second level in and then have a whole new area to put groceries, etc. But even when we forgot to put the piece in, we just piled the bags around the stroller, NBD.
we both have SUVs and keep a stroller in the trunks. I have the BOB in mine and DH has a Liteway on his. I place groceries on the top and side of the stroller in my car. I also have a cargo net and make use of that. And if I still have more groceries or if theyre too big like a case of water, it just goes into the back seat.
I'm trying to figure out where I want to keep the stroller frame for the car seat. Last time, we got the car seat attachment for the BOB and and kept the frame in DH's car. This time I don't want to do that because I want the option of DS staying in the stroller himself and I'm going to try to baby wear. So I may keep it in the house but there isn't a good spot for it (and I can't store it in the garage).
My stroller is huge! We bought it in Germany a few years ago for a new baby. It took us a while to get pregnant, and I hated the strollers the US had. I have to store it in the garage, and will only take it out while we are using it.
I bought a Maxi Cosi car seat, and I am debating on buying the stroller that the car seat can attach to, but I really love the stroller I have now, with the bassinet. So I will probably just use that, as I don't really want to take the car seat in an out of the car all the time.
For now I think I am content w/ what I have, but may change my mind taking a NB in and out of the car seat.
It stays in my trunk. I take it out and leave it in the garage if I really need trunk save but I'm paranoid about spiders.
I have a Toyota Camry and a mamas & papas sola stroller (so its pretty big) and still have tons of room when it's in there.
