  • I suggest freecycle. Your local group is Mid Michigan Reuseit Network. (google it) I know this because I used to belong to this group. :) I used to live in Lansing! Anyway, it was a pretty cool group then.. probably still is! You don't have to tell them your situation. Just put in your request. Good luck!

  • I am not too proud to beg! I Know a lot of people who have 3 and 4 year old's who still have infant things. Some have cribs, strollers, feeding chairs, ect. They are more than happy to give it away or sell it very cheap. You can also get a friend to organize a baby shower. I just had one yesterday, I was so surprised what kind of gifts I got. I wasn't expecting anyone to get some of the things I got. I got a portable infant play bed, Bouncy seats, Jumbo pampers, onesie, blanket,, a crib!!!! I know that a lot of moms on cafe-mom thinks that asking for help is a sign of weakness or U-nAmerican , I think that being resourceful and networking is the smartest thing you can do. Walmart also has great deals!.Good luck!

  • I dont live in the area but i never had much money to spend either so i bought most of my stuff from craigslist. It was a blessing!

  • Thank you for all your comments. I look on craigslist several times everyday and I have looked on Reuseit. Most postings arent in Mason. My man drives a suburban so the gas to drive around checking out baby items gets expensive. If someone in Mason or close has or knows someone with baby things...that would be perfect...thanks again everybody
