Saving Coins Using Facebook Market
I believe in saving your coins! I’m the queen of clearance deals and I love finding brand new or barely used type deals. It just gives me so much satisfaction to know I saved some money, which also gives me the green light to buy more stuff—HA! Before EJ was born, I was on the hunt for a few items that I absolutely wanted. I was smart about my purchases and how much I was willing to spend since we received a good amount of cash from friends and family.

Number one on my list was the 4moms mamaRoo. I think I’ve mentioned this in a previous blog, but if I knew then how awesome the mamaRoo was going to be to us...I would’ve purchased it brand new. However, we received an awesome deal on a gently used mamaRoo3. The deal was so good y’all, we got the mamaRoo and the infant insert for $65. I purchased the mamaRoo via Facebook market from a mommy who said neither of her babies did not like the mamaRoo. The good thing about the mamaRoo is that everything as far as fabric material is washable and everything else can be wiped down with a sanitizing solution.
Number two, the Ingenuity Dream and Grow Bassinet. I found this bassinet on Facebook market too and it was brand new in the box. Retail price is $129.99, but I only paid $90. We honestly use the bassinet more now than when EJ was a newborn. Since the bassinet grows with the baby, it’s great for times when I need EJ to stay in one spot versus him crawling on the floor and getting into something. If we get lucky, he’ll even fall asleep in the bassinet every blue moon.
Number three, the Graco Trax Jogger Click Connect Joggin Stroller. I found this stroller on Target, but I was like let me just check out Facebook market. And of course, several people had it listed-- remember to always read the descriptions. It will really determine if it’s even worth inquiring about the item. I found a listing that described that the stroller was like brand new. My husband returned with the stroller and it looked like it came straight out of a box. I ended up negotiating with the seller and was able to snag this stroller for $70, and it retails for $139.
My suggestion is to always have an idea of what you are looking for. It makes it a whole lot easier to find great deals. There are other avenues similar to Facebook Market where you can purchase items, but I personally just feel more comfortable with making purchases through Facebook Market. I hope this helpful and will inspire you to save those coins!
