Tell me to throw this away!

I'm not a hoarder, I promise I have an infant carrier that I've used for 3kids now, it's so worn out that I hate it. We are not expecting a fifth child any time soon if ever. Why should I store this carseat for who knows how long just in case?!?

It's a Dorel seat dated 9/08, it expires 12/14.

I guess I just need someone to tell me it's okay

Re: Tell me to throw this away!

Sometimes holding onto clutter "we MIGHT need it" stuff ends up costing more than if you ended up needing to repurchase a few things you got rid of. JUST 1 carseat - Meh. A bunch of baby stuff? - possible problem. If these things might get in the way of being able to store or FIND once stored other items of DEFINITE use to you - dump it!

Only reason I can think of is for the next BRU trade in event. But, they've really cut the brands that participate. Based on the last couple years, I'd bet the next will be late Jan.-Feb.

Re: Tell me to throw this away!

Donate it to a local pregnancy center or maternity home! I did that with our last infant car seat. When we were done with the car seat it still had a little over a year left until expiration. One more baby could use it! I called the local maternity home, explained the situation, and they said they would be able to use it. I cleaned it up and took it over there and they were so so so thankful to have it. It was wonderful.

Could you gift it to someone who needs but can't afford one?
