New parents aggressively shopping for estate and used furniture on Craigslist and EBAY to furnish our home. Caught between the devil of rising costs and the deep blue seas of stagnant pay, we are trying to save money. Would like to purchase decent furnishings at prices affordable for the common man. But so much of that affordability hinges on finding "reasonable," shipping rates. We have a new born that constantly reminds us his needs come first.
