    It is car seat recycling week! AKA go ahead, throw that car seat!

    SO, Wednesday is the day that we are going to recycle all car seats possible, that I have collected. Today, I cleared out the upstairs. The easiest way to get car seat from the second floor to outside is?? Out the window of course!

    Ummmm, sorry that video is sideway. Guess a laptop would be a good thing to view this on. Just turn it to your left.

    I will update the thread with more pics, as I get more car seats ready. Maybe it will motivate me to NOT wait until Wednesday morning!

    Oh, and go ahead and guess how many seats we will end up recycling. Chrissy, you can't play. I was counting with you at the house!

    47.

    What was the first seat chucked out? Only reason I ask is it looked like the Breverra/Ascend, which is one of the few expired seats I've thrown out.
    Down to just a spare Radian, folded in the hall closet for my Godbaby.

    The first was a Nania seat. I have two. The other is in the garage.

    MMM Those cookies look delicious!

    I'm guessing 38 seats. Didn't you take a load just a few weeks ago?

    Ok, that would take care of one. But the others?

    Actually, I have given seats away, to be used for the coupons.

    Are they doing that again now?



    I have at least 8 to be trashed. I'm guessing Judi has 54. Has that been guessed yet, I forgot to look.
