A friend of mine at church told me a while ago that there are 3 big kids consignment sales at 3 different churches in the area during this time of year. At these sales people can bring their clothing and equipment and tag their prices themselves, as well as get a percentage of the sale back. Since I do not yet know what we are having (boy or girl), I really am not in the market for clothing, but certainly for equipment. The great thing about these sales is that they do not take anything that is too worn, stained, or out of code (like car seats). So, I have just a few big equipment items on my list to look for and one of them is a Pack n' Play. I have always thought these were handy, especially since we travel to see family often, and have dogs inside the house (it keeps baby off the floor when very small). Last weekend I went to the sale with my mother-in-law, who happened to be in town (yea! a shopping partner!), and found just what I wanted--a Pack n' Play in perfect condition for only $20! Amazingly, I have also mastered how to put it up and take it down (practice makes perfect :) ). I LOVE finding great bargains, and just wanted to share my victory! I also found a super quality baby carrier, that can carry baby in 3 different ways for only $5! All this equipment talk also begs the question--what have you experienced mommies found that is the one or two things you have for your babies that you would not want to live without? Thanks!
