Hell yeah!!!! Now that's what I'm talking about!!! As a new mom, nothing annoys me more than folks who go to Babies R Us and drop major bucks on "Baby Wipe Warmers" and Eddie Bauer diaper bags. And don't even get me started on whatever the hell this is:

I'm just sayin'. Buy used. It's cheaper, more practical considering how fast they grow and less wasteful because it's being recycled. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to put my soapbox back in the bathroom.

I sooooo wish there was a sale like this when my son was little. This is such a good deal for new parents. Baby and kid clothes usually look brand new when your child grows out of them. What a great idea to help recycle those gently used items.

P.S. Pantaloons - I have been on that same soapbox. I work with new Moms who have to have the latest. Your child does not know if he/she is wearing new or gently used outfits from Gymboree or Children's Place.

HAHAHAHA WALKING ASSISTANT HAHAHAHA. That thing is hilarious! I just want to shout out to all the Mamas out there who are open to buying gently used toys/clothes. My son is 18 months and I haven't bought a single thing new. I got a busload of stuff for my shower and I nearly cried when I saw the mountain of packaging that was going straight to the landfill, to remain through all time.
So, here's some tips if you are new to buying "pre-owned". Infant clothes, toys, bouncers, highchairs, swings, etc: Craigslist! The infant stuff gets used for 6 months and is still new when one child is done with it. I had a colic baby and wanted to try every gadget out there to attemt to get 5 minutes of silence. By using CL I tried them all for $10 or less. Ebay is good for more specific things. I realize these ideas are not too groundbreaking, but if you haven't thought of them yet, you can save a lot of money on these 2 websites.

Love the photos! This sale is awesome. I put in a very nice stroller for this week's sale and priced it at only $20! - so I know it will find a new home. If it's still there on half price day it's only $10.

This sale is great for parents who want to save a little cash...

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
