We all love our babies, but unfortunately they are expensive.
Like many mothers, I tried to keep the costs down by buying cheap baby stuff and then when the kids outgrew it resold it on Facebook Buy, Swap Sell sites. These sites are now everywhere and are a great place to find cheap baby clothes, cheap baby furniture etc…Some sites can have over 10K items for sale at any one time, with new listed every minute.
But the sites themselves can be difficult to find, unless you are recommended them by friends! So I have put together a list of the 7 best Buy, Swap, Sell baby sites in Australia, that all mums need to know about.
7 Buy, Swap, Sell Sites Every Aussie Mum Should Know About
BONDS Australia – Buy/Swap/Sell – I have yet to find a mum in Australia who does not LOVE Bonds- I genuinely don’t know what I would do without it! On this page you can find cheap Bonds Wondersuits or cheap kids clothing! It has over 6500 members and many items are posted daily. It’s great if you are selling, as there are many ‘collectors’ on the site who are willing to pay to complete their collection!
Bonds ‘Unicorn’ Rare Items Buy/Swap/Sell/ Trade and Offer Me – Like the site above this Facebook group focuses on Bonds clothing. But it is targeted more towards rare items. So if you have an old Bonds Wondersuit or a cardigan that was rarely worn…why not give it a try and see if you can turn your old items into treasure – you don’t know what you might get!
Baby Jogger Buy, Sell, Swap Australia – Love all things Baby Jogger? Then this is a group for you. All types of prams and accessories are sold here. This is also a very friendly site with people chatting about Baby Joggers. It is a good place to ask questions about accessories or which type to get!
Bugaboo Buy/Swap/Sell Australia – Bugaboos aren’t just for celebrities, but they are an expensive purchase. This is a great place to pick up a second hand Bugaboo so you can get the look, but without the expense. Bugaboos often go for significant discounts. It is an Australia wide site and with over 7000 members, so you surely can find something to suit.
Purebaby Pre-loved- Buy Sell Swap – Love Purebaby but don’t want to pay $40 for a romper that your baby will outgrow within weeks?! Well this could be a useful site. Purebaby items (often barely used) are sold at significant discounts. Also, if you have any Purebaby items to sell, this is a perfect place to do it! This is an Australian wide site, so it is a good place to get top dollar for second hand items!
Country Road Buy Swap Sell – So this site is not strictly for kids, by kids items are traded on it. It is a great pace to pick up some cheap baby or kids clothes. It has 14000 members so is one of the largest Buy, Swap, Sell sites out there. The group trades Country Road, Witchery, Trenery and Mimco, so you can sell some of your items (or pick something up for yourself) as well as buy/sell your kid clothes.
Buy and sell your Modern Cloth Nappies (MCN) Australia – An Australian only group of over 10K members dedicated to Buy and sell your Modern Cloth Nappies. This is a great site as you know you are also helping the environment as well as saving money!
Of course, if you are looking for a bargain the best place to find cheap baby stuff or kids clothes is our Daily Deals page, where you are sure to pick up a bargain!
