I enjoy buying things used. It makes me feel good to save a little money, help a neighbor out by getting something they no longer need off their hands, and recycle an item that still has some life left in it. Many of the items purchased for our baby are used, from clothes and diapers, to the crib and dresser, the co-sleeper, bedding, baby carriers, and now a pack 'n play.

I'll admit, the used pack 'n play was difficult to find. Most of them had seen just a bit too much love for me, or they were missing key components, or they were sold before I could get to them. I eventually found someone on Craigslist who was trying to sell an entire John Lennon nursery collection and convinced them to part with just the pack 'n play. $40 for a pack 'n play that is clean and in nice condition, has a bassinet and changing table option, and (bonus!) all the parts and instructions.

In this case, it took a little more time and energy to find what I was looking for, but in the end I think it paid off.
