What Do You Do With The Stuff Your Kid’s Outgrown?

As parents, we want everything for our little ones to be ‘just right’. From the day of their arrival (or even before) we amass so many things which we need and which are ‘just in case’.

Prams, cribs, cots, bassinets, strollers, swings, rockers, walkers, not to mention the numerous toys and books – the list is endless. Our kids grow fast, leaving a trail of high-priced, low-use products behind.

What Can You Do About It?

  • If you have another one on the way, you can handpick a few favourite (and expensive) items and store them for later use.
  • You can hand it over to a relative, friend or neighbour who can use those items. You can declutter and earn some goodwill too.
  • You can sell these preloved items in yard sells, or reselling platforms. Ensure you choose the platforms wisely -interact with strangers with caution and make payments securely.
  • Choose to giveaway to shelters, NGOs or day care facilities which can put these items to great use.

Choosing to buy or sell or give away preloved products is good for our planet – and also good for your wallet. Buying quality preloved products is economic, and is reducing the landfills one product at a time.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Do I really need so many things for my child? Pick only essential ones, which can later be resold.
  • Will this product grow with my child? Think products with multiple settings like high chairs and prams, or multipurpose products like activity tables and play gyms.
  • Will it give good resale value? It might be expensive to buy, but will have good resale value.
  • Would I rather buy preloved? I am ensuring a better future and greener planet for my kid.
