Craiglist sales update

December 10th, 2009 at 03:35 pm

I've been nesting and cleaning out things out of the basement and the guest room which we're turning into a nursery.

I've got a huge pile of stuff to give my parents, a big pile of stuff for Goodwill and a large bag of clothes for consignment which I need to drop off next week.

Craigslist This week

Dresser - Sold $35
Metal Bed Frame - Sold $30
Laundry Hamper / Sorter - Asking $10
Coffee Table - Asking $30

I usually just save all the cash in an envelope and take out of it before heading to the thrift store looking for baby bargains. This makes me feel a whole lot better about shopping even if it is for second hand goods.

In baby news - one of the few things we're going to be buying new is a carseat. And the best rated one goes for $160, eeek! But the basic ones get horrible reviews so I think we will have to pay for some good quality on this purchase. So that will be going on the Amazon Christmas wishlist that I'm going to send to the in-laws and hope for the best. Smile

    Yes, you do NOT want to let a frugal mindset lead you to go cheap on the car seat! It's one of the most important safety items... well worth spending the money. Interestingly, when I had a pretty serious car accident a couple of years ago (my daughter was NOT in the car, thankfully), the insurance company reimbursed me fully for the car seat, even though it did not appear damaged. That's how important they are! Good luck finding a good one on sale. =)
