    I can't believe how lucky I am, and doubt I'll be able to top this bargain ever again!

    We're on Baby number two, so using the same pram, car seat etc as before. We've got the Quinny Buzz, but didn't buy the carrycot first time around, to be honest I thought it was far too much money for something I would hardly use.

    The last few weeks I've been looking locally on Ebay at a few being sold, I'm not too fussed about having one again, I just wanted an excuse to buy something! But I thought at least if I buy it second hand, I can sell it on for pretty much the same price, so no wasted money!

    I can't believe my luck, yesterday I won a Dark Blue carrycot, went to pick it up and it's in amazing condition, doesn't look at all used. We've washed all the covers to give it that 'new' smell again.

    I still can't believe the price, I got it for £6.71!!!!

    Yeah, I can't imagine they were too pleased, they'd placed a starting bid price of £5 up - no idea why you wouldn't pay the extra fee and start the bid at £20 or something.

    I felt incredibly guilty getting it for that price, so when I went to collect I just gave them £10! Can you imagine their faces if I'd asked for change! ;-)

    I did exactly the same, admit that the carrycot was a bit dearer than that, but still £20 for a £155 carrycot!

    I got a ikea changing unit (cupboard with a changing topper) for about six pounds something (beginning of the pregnancy can't remember the exact amount) and I paid by paypal!!! ... he wasn't pleased to it to go so cheaply (well he wasn't chatty!) BUT he should have put a reserve on it - I had bid for several mammas and pappas ones and been outbide at about £25 pounds... so I was well chuffed.

    I love Ebay! They have some wonderful deals. I got a bunch of baby clothes, most with the tags still on them, for less than $1 an outfit. I also got a new, still with tags on it, diaper bag for about 1/3 the price of it in the store.
