It's hard sometimes to say "no" when things are free! This is true of kids' stuff too. When you have a baby, you are offered so much hand-me-down stuff and, if you accept everything, you end up with so much that you don't use or need. I like this idea of saying "no" Glorya - would have saved me many trips to Vinnies (with spare prams, clothes, rockers, etc)
I agree!!! I used to be amazed at ALL the stuff I was given when I had my first baby. Now I know it was just dumping!! ;) Jokes aside, people have been very generous and kind. But I've become a bit more choosy now.With baby 3 on the way, I've only got 2 bags of baby clothes. Let's see how we go.
Most of the time they are rubbish and take up my cupboard space! A lady in a supermarket wanted to give me their promotion goodies....BBQ sauces. I said 'ah no thanks'. The guy behind me said 'I'll have it!'.I agree with you!! it's very easy to accept it if they are free but really, do we need it??
