My gf is pregnant with her 3rd kid (an OOPS, according to her). She is a SAHM and her husband just got laid off for the 3rd time in a year. She asks me if I still have my first born's infant car seat, and I say yeah, and she asked if she can have it. Now, in any normal circumstance, I would give it to her knowing her situation, however, I have it up on craigslist trying to sell for $40 (plus $40 for the stroller too) and $80 value on something that was $279! Anyway, I did tell her I had it and said I was asking $40 for it on craigslist - and she said nevermind (I guess she got offended). We are a struggling family right now with 2 babies under the age of 2, I need all the money I can get! I can't afford to be just giving away something expensive like that! Am I wrong to ask for some money? I can most likely easily sell it to somone who will give me the $ that I'm asking, but because she's my friend, she got offended that I asked for $ I guess? How would you react?
Like I said, if I was fine financially, I would have definitely given it to her, no doubt about it. But I can't afford groceries half the time so yeah that $ would really help me out! We spent $279 on it 2 years ago (back when we had money, prior to kids lol!)
Any thoughts appreciated...
