NESTING!!! I scoured online ads (kijiji, similar to craigslist) for 3 different cities where I have connections and found 2 promising ads for used boys clothes ($25 for a garbage bag of 0-12 mos and $65 for 3 garbage bags of 0-24 mos) and an ad for a new ergo infant insert for $20 (owners forgot they had it till baby outgrew it) - Also found an ad for huge amount of size 5 to 6x clothes for my oldest for $15 but I haven't heard back on that yet. So I got all the info and DH is going for the ergo insert and the 0-12 mos clothes tomorrow before he leaves the city and one of his aunts has been kind enough to offer to pick up the other clothes (which are in my hometown), hopefully they will get back to me soon with their contact info, then this little guy will be all set for clothes for a while.
I am bummed that I misssed out on one great ad - someone giving away their entire diaper stash bc it needed new elastics and they didn't have the time to do it. Unfortunately someone else beat me to it, maybe I will get lucky and they won't actually pick it up...
I also went through my bags and bags of girls clothes and saved 1 garbage bag of gender neutral stuff - mostly 0-6 with a few larger items (I didn't know the sex of my first till birth even then I dislike pink), I saved a few outfits I can't part with from when my girls were babies, and I have 4 garbage bags of girl clothes (0-3T?) to pass on. That was a huge item on my list! We will be bringing in our crib, change table, etc. on the weekend and perhaps I can convince DH to set it up while were at it. I still need a dresser for this guy and to get my bedroom cleaned up / rearranged / set up, wash and arrange baby clothes and diapers, and then I am ready for November - I can't believe it! I wasn't this prepared this early for my first not to mention my second (poor middle child).
Anyone else nesting yet?
