Want to know whats more expensive.
A funeral. Because you are playing with fire and your kid could get killed if it breaks down in an accident. You aren't even supposed to buy used carseats and when you throw away a seat you are supposed to dismember it so it can't be used. I used my niece's carseat as a second-hand seat because I knew without a shadow of a doubt it was never in an accident and was properly taken care of. Even when you use a seat from someone you "know," who knows if they took care of the seat properly?
Really, you should never use a seat after the expiration date AND it's a stupid ass idea to buy seats off craigslist and such. You can contact fire departments and various agencies to help you get a seat if you really have no money for a seat. But if you can't afford a carseat, and have NO way to get that one item... you should look into if you really can afford a baby at all.
