We're working on cheaping out - but in a good way. Now that we're getting a handle on some of the things we need, we're exploring Craigslist to get some better deals on gently used items that we don't mind grabbing used. The main goals right now: crib, rocking chair, possibly a dresser/changing table.
For those of you who already have kiddos, what did you get used? What was hand me downs? What did you insist on having brand new all for yourselves?
