    Me! I bought quite a few of our big ticket baby items from ebay or gumtree. And toys for DD from second hand baby and children's markets. Kids stuff second hand is the best as its often hardly used and they use it for such little time, its a good way to let them still have things that you might not otherwise be able to afford. Eg I bought my DD an awesome huge fisher price dolls house for $5 because the person selling its daughter had scribbled on it and stuck stickers on it she didnt want to clean off. Bit of eucalyptus oil and its brand new and saved me paying nearly the $100 it would have cost brand new!!

    Also op shopping! Lots of bargains there

    Me tooooo!

    I love the whole reusing aspect, and saving good things from becoming landfill.

    We recently bought a solid wood bunk bed that can be used as 2 single beds also from ebay very cheaply. DH sanded it all back and repainted it, and it looks gorgeous!!!

    I also get so much satisfaction from giving our old stuff away/selling it.
