Baby furniture disposal. Something you knew would come but aren’t ready for just yet. Nevertheless, the time has come and now you’re wondering how to handle the change. It’s a big one, for sure. But, it’s not necessarily going to be an easy one. We’re not just talking about the emotional aspect (which is huge) but the pure logistics.
Baby Furniture Disposal Transition
Okay, so the single biggest challenge for baby furniture disposal is just that. If the furniture is changeable, meaning it doesn’t become a toddler and/or daybed or “grow” with your child, you have a slight problem on your hands. Now, it could well be in good condition. It could be cute. But, that won’t matter much because new parents are often very picky parents.
If your child has outgrown her baby crib, you may have found it’s a tough piece of furniture to dispose of. Even thrift stores don’t accept older cribs, because in 2011 federal safety regulations changed, making it illegal to sell models now considered substandard. Rather than storing your crib or throwing it away, why not try committing it to a new purpose? —Bob Vila.com
If you put yourself in their shoes, you’ll quickly understand why. After all, would you rather buy new and take the hit to your wallet or buy something someone else already used? Even if that’s not part of the equation (which is most certainly is), then you also have to consider something else. Well, actually two things. One — is it now outdated? And two, — is it now or has it been on a recall list? If you answer “Yes” to either question, this doesn’t bode well.
Rockville Outgrown Baby Furniture Disposal Options
If your baby furniture is still in good condition and it doesn’t appear on any recall list, then you do have some options. Here are a few helpful baby furniture disposal suggestions you can try:
- Sell it. One good thing is there are always new parents or soon-to-be parents out there. And, some are pinching every penny. That’s great news for you because it means there’s a market. So, go with a local, online ad and price it cheap to get it sold quickly.
- Donate it. Of course, if it’s in good, usable condition, there’s also the charity route. You can donate it to a local church or other charitable organization and get a small tax write-off.
- Give it away. You just might know someone — a family member, friend, or coworker — who is in need of baby furniture. Make it a win-win scenario and give it away to a good home.
- Store it for future use. Even if you aren’t outright planning for another child but there’s still a possibility, you might consider holding onto it. Just store it safely away to use when it’s time again.
