What do you do with outgrown un-needed carseats?

 Both my girls are in "big kid" seats now.

I have 2 EvenFlo Triumph seats that I have no idea what to do with?

Anyone know?

Cut the straps up and the covers and throw them away. They could have damage to the shell of the seats and it is not reccomended that they be used again.

As long as they haven't been in an accident and are not expired, you could donate them to a shelter or goodwill. If the above two apply to you, cut the straps and dispose of them properly.

I give them to DH to take to work. He's a police officer so they used the expired/ som "been in an accident" car seats to train safety techs and the still safe ones they give to people that come to the safety checks that need the right car seat/cannot afford one.

 I clean them up if they need it and then write  a note with the FULL history of the carseat and tape it to the carseat and give it to a thrift store. 

also you can give it to a crisis center- they loan them to moms for free.

Or you can advertise it on freecycle.org  so someone who needs a carseat but cant afford  to buy one can take it

or sell it on craigslist if you need the cash

I donated my old carseats to health and welfare for kids that come into foster care with nothing.

Save them if your having more kids.... Give them away to people who need them if you dont want them.

I give them to the domestic violence crisis center.

I was giving my advice under the assumption that the carseats are still safe and not expired--  if they are expired or damaged  throw them away!

i would give them away to either someone you know, or to someplace that could use them. to me, as long as they are still safe someone could use it. and if u give it for free, to me that really is a sign that u are telling the truth about them not been in an accident because u arent making a buck off of it.
