  • Check discount stores - like Ross, Marshalls and Big Lots. Sometimes even Target has them on clearance. However, you're probably going to spend a lot of money driving to all these different stores to see if they have it.

    Explain it to your hubby this way. You CAN spend about 4 hours going to all these different stores and probably $10-$20 in gas. Or you can just go ahead and get the one at WalMart. So, what's the difference in buying a car seat for $40.00 and spending $15 in gas to find it???

  • It will be hard for you to find a good car seat for 50 bucks i would tell your husband atleast try and persway him to at least pay up to 75 show him all the car seats you could possible find and make him pick one out except what he picks has to be agreeable with you and meet all saftey needs personaly it would be better to buy a new one that a used becuase u dont know the history of the one your getting good luck maybe he will see your side and not be so cheap.
