  • So I was trying to find a cheap way of getting baby furniture without doing the yard sale thing (I'm new in the area and I always get lost, even with a map, lol.) I am now a huge fan of Ebay, lol.

    I do have a registry, but realized, with the help of you wonderful ladies, that no one is going to buy from it. I made a list of the big things I do not have, but wanted to get with the price of getting them new, not including shipping for the ones not in the store. My total cost came out to $345.00 for the following list:

    Double stroller (since Vincent is still using the stroller) ~ $175.00
    Bouncer ~ $30.00
    Pack-n-play ~ $80.00
    Bassinet ~ $40.00
    Crib bedding set (the one I was registered for was a 4 pc.) ~ $60.00

    My total from Ebay for the items that I was able to win (which was everything except the bassinet) is as follows:

    Double stroller $95.00
    Bouncer $26.00
    Crib bedding set (a 9 pc.) $51.00
    Pack-n-play $52.00

    A total of $225.00 saving me $120.00!!! Those totals also include shipping. Now, I don't really care if I have to buy the bassinet new or if I can get it from Ebay.

    I was amazed, however, to see how many people don't research items before bidding on them. The bassinet I was bidding on was the exact one I'm registered for, only $40.00 new, and the person who won it, including shipping, is paying almost $70.00!!
    I couldn't believe it!

    Anyway, just wanted share in my excitement at getting this stuff that I was sooooo worried about a couple weeks ago.

  • So I can't do math, lol. That should be $80.00 not $120.00...can't exactly use the cost of the bassinet when I still don't have one. Oops!
