I don't know how many of you are as disillusioned as I am with the ridiculously overpriced baby furniture. Actually anything baby. I thought weddings were the only things that attracted a serious amount of $$$$ (we dodged that one) but man the markup must be huge. Even ebay was not giving me joy
Thankfully hubby and I have just returned from ikea where we picked up a basic cot for $99 so I thought I'd pass on the tip for those who are looking for the basics & not the bells & whistles.

Cheap New Baby Cot Tip

Yup, you're exactly right - for some reason 'baby' chest of drawers cost twice as much as chest of drawers that you get from the furniture shop.
We were lucky and got ours on ebay. Thanks for the tip re Ikea

I got a second hand cot for $100 and it has lasted 3 kids , its not show home quality but its not like i ever took ppl for tours of the nursery or cared what they thought of my plain white cot. The money we saved meant my kids now have nice healthy bank balances for their future needs.
