Dylan is our first child and the first grandchild on both sides. Though people have been very generous thus far with gifts and hand-me-downs, Dylan recently outgrew nearly EVERY outfit and pair of pajamas he owns and, of course, our budget is currently maxed out.
“What did you do, Erika?”, you ask?
I got on C-list (I edited this because of all the spamming I keep getting) and looked for people selling baby clothing.
“What did you find?”
I found someone selling over one hundred pieces of 12-18 month clothing (yes, my not even 9 month old is that big) for $50. Let me tell you, this is how I’m doing things from now on! For fifty dollars, I received a rubbermaid-like container overflowing with clothing.
If you are new to C-list:
What rock have you been hiding under? j/k
Deal locally and with cash ONLY… NEVER deal with people who want to use checks and mail… he/she is more than likely a con artist.
Be careful about where you meet people…
Do your best to know who you’re dealing with… I usually make sure to speak with the person I am dealing with over the phone so I can be sure, for instance, the young bubbly thirty something mom isn’t a sixty something creepy guy.
Anyway, I just thought this was the best idea I’ve had in a long time and I wanted to share the wealth! I wish I took a picture of the overwhelming bin of clothing before I unpacked it all, but I didn’t… sorry! Guess you’ll just have to take my word for it… eek! 😉
