Change in seating--what to keep and what to sell (or purchase?)


New member
I am HAPPILY able to take next school year off and stay home with my kids :D In order to do this, I will be caring for a couple of kids (will be 18months/2.5yrs/10months in the fall) starting in August (I am thinking ahead!). I do not plan to be transporting the children I am caring for, but thought I should keep a couple seats on hand just in case(?).

I have a 5 y/o (39lbs) and a 2y/o(28lbs/RF)--both are long waisted. I drive an 07 Saturn Relay (back row is all belt install...only top tether position is the middle--unless I am missing something). My kids are in the captain's seats.

Here are the seats I currently own:

FPSV (currently in sitter's car)
Nauti (currently in sitter's car)
Boulevard (my car)
Boulevard (DH's car-06 Jeep Liberty)
Regent (my car)
Regent (DH's car-06Jeep Liberty)
Apex 65 (on loan to a friend)
True Fit on the way to replace DD's current BLVD (for my car--if we like it we will be getting another to try in DH's car)

I know I do not need 7 seats...for 2 vehicles. Any ideas on what to keep and what to sell? My initial thought was to keep the FPSV for a back-up seat, but then thought that the BLVD would be a better one to hold on to...and then started thinking I'd replace DS's on Regent with the Nauti (still not sure how I feel on Britax's recent coverage) and maybe sell the other Regent and buy another Nauti for DH's car. Thanks for working through this with me...the other thing I need to check on is the DOM on all these seats. The oldest seats are the BLVD's and I think the DOM is around 6/06. It'd make more sense I think to sell those instead of holding onto them and not using them again until fall...and then have them expire in June 2011.

Thanks for any tips! Just trying to not have a ton of seats sitting in the garage or basement when someone else could use them.
