Where can I get carseats and booster seats free or extremely cheap, immediately?





CPS just called, they are removing my step kids from their home and wanted to see if we would take them or if they needed to go into foster care. Obviously we are taking them. Planning on leaving in an hour or two, (it is a 12 hour drive)





My problem is, I dont have car seats or boosters for them. I really cant afford to go buy 4 new ones, although I will if I have too. Any ideas where to get some asap for cheap? any help would be appreciated


Eta: Thanks ladies, I knew you could help fast. I am headed to Walmart.

You can get boosters for $10 at Walmart. They also have cheap carseats (just don't get a convertible).

Police department might have some. Can you borrow one or 2 from a friend or relative? :(

Walmart and big lots are the only two stores I can think of that are on the cheaper side

Not as fast as you need them.  Maybe talk to CPS and see if they can help.

You might check with the dhs or wic office. Sometimes they have resources for things like this
