The Splurge

So I totally splurged today! I finally bit the bullet and bought the fancy schmancy double stroller that I have been dreaming of for 4 1/2 months...

Isn't it wonderful :) And there is a cool extra bar that fits on the front to let TWO carseats riding at the same time. And currently, that would be super useful! :)

So yes, I spent a lot of $$ but I did shop smart.

Here's what I did:

I looked all around and decided on the stroller I wanted. I checked craigslist and decided against purchasing used... b/c its a good investment afterall, why not just go for it?! Then I started shopping online and comparing stores. $224.99 $220.54 $279.99
and so on.

Then I looked for coupon codes to up my value and keep my OOP down and found a 15% off first purchase code for that included free 1-2 day shipping! Oh and there was no tax.. odd but a happy surprise. So with a savings of nearly $34 I went with I tried to stack this with other codes and couldn't but I am still happy with my savings.

Then of course I sold a few things on Craigslist to help out the difference. I am still OOP less than $100 for my brand new AMAZING stroller :) Now I just have to convince the hubby I can spend another $140 and get the matching carseat... LOL

 Want to cash in on some savings too? If you already have an account just make a new one with one of the many emails I am sure you have and use the code: THEB3035 to save 15% off your order too!
