We are the opposit here lol. I really dislike second hand stuff especially for our kids, regardless the condition unless its never been used. DH is not a huge fan of seconds for our kids either, but he wouldnt mind a good bargain and depending on what it is. DH wouldnt mind second hand furniture for example but wont buy second hand clothing and I am not into seconds at all unfortunately.

If you really want to freak him out, just remind him the next time he goes to a store to try on some new clothes that it has probably been tried on 10 times before he has got to it!

Your dh would be appalled that i scored a toddle bed from kerbside collection the other day. My dh thought it was a pretty good score.

I would love to purchase second hand things but anything I mention to my mum she throws money at me to buy brand new
Wish I had friends and relatives to share things with as well.. but nobody is at the same stage and those who are frown upon used goods so I'm stuck.

I am in the same boat. We live off 3 pensions in the house and barely make ends meet some weeks.. but DH isn't too happy with the idea of second hand.. I have been given a few things so I pretty much tell him I will be using xyz cause I was given it. other things like our cot I eventually worked out he though mum got the matterss with it. I eventually told him No it was bought separate and was hardly used only by 1 nephew 2 hours a week for a year..
He didn't like the colour of the cot so as soon as I can I plan to sand and paint it.. just need to buy sander and dremel cause I am not sanding a whole cot by hand,
