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.

Wow, I stand corrected :)


Quoting mary841108:

 some actually do. ours does and about once a month they do a safety fair where you can go and get one for free but they give them out all year round. i got one because the one we had was recalled.


Quoting Anonymous:

Why would you think a police station would have car seats? They don't.



Quoting xanayda:

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

Oh wow that's sad! :(

Quoting Anonymous:

They dont have any. They dont belive in car seats....


Quoting AngeLnChainZ:

CPS should be able to get the seats the children already have when they're removed ...

If not, like others have suggested walmart is fairly cheap. PD and FD's aren't going to have any on hand (It'd be a rare case if they do!)

Good. We got here in the middle of the night, got the kids this morning, and will be leaving in an hour or so. Not looking forward to another 12 hours in the car, especially with 4 kids, but it'll be worth it...
