Dog, Cat, 4 apartments, elliptical (bought and sold), Freezer, TV stand, cloth diapers, lawnmower (bought and sold), baby toys, baby clothes, iPhones (sold to pay for our new ones), bouncy car exersaucer and much much more. I also connected with a really awesome group of moms to form a playgroup that meets once a week (every mom should join a playgroup - amazing!)
This week I scored 3 great items for a grand total of $70. If I had shopped retail they would have cost me far over $300! I'm going to share over the next few days these great items and how Jack is in love with them (mommy too).
We've been on the hunt for several items this week as our little man grows into an active big baby! There are SO MANY THINGS out there for babies and it is hard to know just exactly what your baby will like, shun or be interested in. I thought that the wedding/bridal industry was a bunch of scammers the way they charged billions of bucks for cakes, invites supplies but they have got nothing on the baby supply industry.
We searched department stores for some ideas and found a great infant to toddler rocking chair. However it was $60 and you're just bat-crap-crazy to pay that much for a baby item that may or may not last through one phase in his first year of life. To Kijiji, I say.
|Loving the relaxation!|
Sometimes a baby just needs a good chair to hang out in and sadly his little infant chair he lived in for months just wasn't cutting it. This one I'm VERY happy with!
|Laying down in the "infant position". |
Jack disliked and protested greatly. I guess he's not feeling infantish.
|Working it in the toddler-rocker stage!|
For some other items we have in mind for Jack we're going to check out the FAMOM Spring/Summer. It is such a great idea! I think that everyone should check this out who have little ones in the Fredericton area. Details below from their Facebook event!
