are you ok with used stuff for the baby or do you want everything new?

My sister likes to call me cheap but I am really trying to get everything I can used (exceptions = diapers and car seat). Why should I pay full price for clothes she might wear once? Why should I pay full price for toys she is gonna use for maybe 6 months? Just seems like a huge waste of money for new things.

I've gotten some new stuff already (furniture and diapers), but I have no problem with used things. Especially clothes and toys! I'll actually be getting a bunch of hand-me-downs from my sister's baby, and I'm so antsy for the weather to get warm enough for the garage sales to start

The only thing I absolutely will not buy used is a car seat.

New - carseat, used - everything else. We use cloth diapers, so some of those are used too.

That's a good point - with the sales I've seen Ro snag, she's getting new at used prices sometimes!

I like to make a lot of stuff myself too, so I think that's in the new category, but a little different. I won't buy a used carseat because there's no way to know if it's been in an accident or not.

We definitely had a lot more new stuff with Dalton than we do with this one! Are you going to buy a swing for this one Marie? We bought a swing new for Dalton, and he hated it... DH is hoping this baby likes it so at least one of our kids uses it
