    I have too many seats

    Did I just say that?! Is it possible to have TOO MANY?!

    Grandma's car- Daisy Nautilus
    Grandpa's car- Nautilus
    DH's car- Nautilus, Titan (for...? no one)
    My car- TFP, Complete Air, My Ride (in the 3rd row, for when I have Sofi and a friend), HBTB, backless booster.

    In my trunk- EFTA50, Scenera (for donating if the need ever arises), SR32
    In my basement/living room- Avenue (for donating), Cargo (Sofi's spare), SS1 base, random backless boosters.
    loaned to a friend- Titan

    I have too many. Just toooooo many. And do you know what? I was planning to buy a Maestro at the BRU trade in I've talked myself out of it, unless I can sell a seat.

    And I helped a Mom with a FR80 today, and now I really want a FR85 again.

    But this IS slowed down. Last time someone did a poll of how many people had.... I had 21 or 22. Now I only have 18. And I'm really trying to sell 2. I've convinced myself I don't need the $60 Maestro next month.

    Re: I have too many seats

    I needed this thread, here I was thinking I was bad for having one seat in my car, one in my mom's and 2 in my bedroom for...??? And considering buying a tf just because they're on sale and I've never played with one.

    That's what I've always thought. But I had a huge hall closet to keep them in. Now I live in a much smaller space. The EFTA is in my trunk and Titan in DH's truck because I don't want to bring them into the house, there's no where to put them

    Correct! You only have 7 seats, so you're fine. Especially with 3 kids.

    I have 1 child. ONE CHILD. Granted, I was nanny for 3 more, that used to be my excuse.
