I didn't receive hand me downs for my daughter when she was little, and when she was older, they were usually made into her play clothes as they would be worn or not my style.. I love consignment sales as you can pick and choose what you are getting. Bought some Ralph Lauren, Gymboree and Carters at a thrift store last week for a couple dollars each--infant clothes are usually not worn much and depending on how they are laundered, they stay in good shape.
I say, go through what you have received, pick out what suits your preferred style, set the rest aside and mix in some new things too--it is still fun to shop for your own kids.
I don't do used car seats--I did last time because I needed so many and couldn't afford new ones at that time, but bought from extended family and then bought new ones when I could.
