I am a bargain shopper. I hardly ever buy anything at full price. In fact, I cannot think of a single baby item that I have bought at full price (except for one baby outfit). And thus my love for craigslist.com. I just bought this play wall off craigslist.com. Not this one exactly but just like it. It is in excellent condition, just need to wipe it down.
Get this...for only $15! Amazon.com is selling it for $199. Now that is a steal of a deal if you ask me. Now I know Jacob is too little to actually play with it but soon enough and I will be ready. Other things I have bought off craigslist.com: Snap-N-Go stroller, Phil&Ted's stroller, Sling, Miracle blankets, Bumgenius diapers, and a lawn mower (a real one, not a toy one). We have saved so much money this way. Babies are expensive and it's amazing what people are willing to sell for cheap. And with kids stuff, most of it is in excellent condition cause a lot of people only have one kid. The key is to do your research and wait for a good deal. The next thing I am looking for is a Moby Wrap for around $15. If you see one on there, let me know!
