A Few Shopping Successes!

I haven't had a chance to finishing registering yet, but I have to say I am feeling so much better about the whole process. I can't thank all of you who have commented or emailed enough. What would I do without all you ladies! I am starting to think the Baby Bargains book is to shopping/registering what What to Expect When You're Expecting is to pregnancy, a book that just completely freaks you out! I am realizing that while they may have some good advice, they are also likely wrong on a lot of things, and a bit over the top about other things.

I did have a few shopping successes recently. For now, I am not going to do much more shopping until after my baby showers. I am just going to register and wait and see what we get as gifts. But now that I have made my first craigslist purchase, I know where I will be starting to look for what we need.

So here is my first craigslist deal:

A BOB Revolution!!!

I am so excited!

Last Saturday, my stepmom and I went to the Mothers of Multiples sale and found some great bargains.

I got this Graco Pack 'n' Play for $15:

And all of this for $71.50:


and more clothes

 84" gingham curtains from Pottery Barn



Little People fire truck and car carrier, fisher price dump truck, and 
vtech school bus (that plays "the wheels on the bus go round and round")

And from Me-me (Grandma Karen - my stepmom) for $20:

Don't you just love a good bargain!

Can I ask how much you got the BOB for? Finding one on Craig's list is AMAZING!!!! They are hard to get second-hand.

Also, in the pj picture -- we had the dinosaurs and cars pj's. The dinosaur ones were VERY popular!!!!

My personal opinion is to not buy anything yourself new. You really don't need to. Other than a stroller (which you found) and maybe a car seat, you can get it all second-hand.

YOU GOT A BOB! Your life will never be the same now!

Awesome shopping! Great deals. Craigslist is my friend. :) We even found our current townhouse on craigslist. :)

Got our tire fixed. So sorry we didn't get to get together today. :( But have a terrific time in Turkey and we'll definitely get together when you get back!!!

I have the same stroller only in orange and I love love love it! It is so smooth! Ellie falls asleep everytime we use it. Right now we are still using the carseat adapter, but I can't wait until we can just use the stroller. It is my favorite baby item!
