Starting to collect baby stuff

Went garage sale shopping this weekend. I spent $65. What did I get??

-beautiful crib in box and with tags still!
-high chair that turns into a baby swing.
-big push truck toy
-puzzles and books
-like new several pieces of clothing (khaki pants, swim trunks, new onesies)

Nothing seems to beat garages sales bargain wise. E-bay and Craig's list are pretty good, but not as good as garage sales! Looking forward to next weekend's big neighborhood ones! I have visions of being fully stocked for under $200. I love a good challenge! People seem to be especially generous when I explain we are going to be foster parents (please forgive me for working at people's heart strings, but it helps;)

This is just a whole new world to me because for 5 years B would not let me buy baby stuff for fear of "jinxing" us...ummm....yeah, that plan worked great...
