the first step...

...is admitting that you have a problem. Hi. My name is Laura and I am addicted to eBay.

Well, my addiction is not all of eBay. It's pretty much just focused on the baby/toddler clothes - newborn to 5T boys. I'm slightly obsessed. I've purchased 17 items for G-man. 17!!
When Ben found out he could get Grayson a $5 polo...well, then the problem spread. Oops. :)
Seriously, eBay is fabulous. I have only gotten one boutique outfit for Grayson at a regular store...the rest have been off of eBay! I do have guidelines when it comes to this addiction. I add many items on my watch list before I actually bid. I try and wait until the last few minutes to put in a bid. I'm sneaky! I also will not a) pay more than $12 for a used item -- I have broken this rule for a brand new with tag Kelly's Kids monogrammed bubble & b) not bid on an item that has $5 shipping. That just irritates me.

If our next child is a girl then we are in big trouble.

I have the exact same addition but I get all of mine from facebook consignment sales. It's crazy! Love all the clothes for big G man.

I have the same addiction. Let me just warn you to stay away from the Facebook sales and consignment sales, they're very addicting as well! All of his clothes are super cute, it looks like you have found some GREAT sellers on EBAY!

Oh no, a new place for me to take my baby shopping addiction - ebay! Why didn't I think of that?!?! My current weaknesses are Zulily and Baby Gap. I simply cannot resist all the adorable little things! Happy Shopping!

It's all adorable! Much better than paying retail anyway since he grows so quickly. Have you seen Zulily and Totsy? I don't even have kids and I'm obsessed with the cuteness on those sites!!
