If your a parent (or know someone who is or will be) that needs some baby supplies then now is a good time to go out and get them.
Babies R Us is holding another "Great Trade-In Event" and this time they have upped the discount to 25%. The premise is simple: Bring in an old car seat, stroller, travel system, high chair, play yard, toddler bed, bassinet or crib and exchange the old one for 25% off a new one. One of the great things about starting a parenting blog is that I've been able to find far more deals than I ever have before. The downside is we bought pretty much everything we needed before we started this blog. Meaning we shopped around and still paid full price (who does that anymore?!) for some items. Since we are out of luck on this one, we hope this helps you.
Our suggestion is call all your friends and relatives and see if they have any old baby items in the above categories that they will donate to you so you can trade in for new items. If you don't know anyone with baby items then hit the flea markets and garage sales and see if you can find some of these items for the change in your pocket. If you find an old stroller and you pay $10 for it and you trade it in for a new one at $125, you'll save $31.25. Net profit = $21.25.
I will gladly spend $10 to make $20, that's what we call a bargain. So get on the horn and see what kind of goodies you can wrangle up and get your baby some new stuff! The event ends Feb 20.
Buy yourself something nice to with all the money you save! Click the image below for the details.
