When you have kids so many people have so many suggestions and so much advice, but the one thing that you don't really realize is so true is just how quickly kids grow. You buy cute little outfits and before you know it, and sometimes before they even have a chance to wear them, those little monsters outgrow them. The same is true for car seats. Outgrowing clothes is no big deal, but outgrowing a car seat can be dangerous and that's why Target's Car Seat Trade-In Event is such a big deal.

Target usually holds their Car Seat Trade-In in May and September but well, COVID. The new dates for the event are September 13 – 26. You can bring in any car seat to be recycled in exchange for a 20% off Target coupon towards any purchase of a new car seat, stroller, or select baby gear.

Just go to the Target Guest Service counter to get your coupon. You can use it either in store or online. Having your child in a car seat is the law but it's also the best way to keep your child safe in your vehicle. You can click here to find out what car seat is right for your child's age and weight.

This is one easy way to protect your child and save some money at the same time.
