Jack thinks moving is awesome. He is digging the maze of boxes in our living room, and the increased space as our furniture is sold. We put his crib mattress on the floor in our second bedroom for his morning nap, setting him up with a pillow and blanket. When he woke up, it was easy to see that he thought it was the COOLEST THING EVER to have his own little bed! I tried to take the blanket off of him to pick him up and he pulled it back over his legs and snuggled down into the pillow. He has been going back into that room all afternoon to lay on his bed. Perhaps it’s time to transition him into that bed full time.
In my continuing efforts to build a diaper stash, I have been doing some online shopping. After perusing late last night, I was able to get a great deal on some used BumGenius AIOs. I then realized that I don’t have enough diapers to use starting on Thursday (no more diaper service since we move Friday). Our mail has already started forwarding to the new address, so buying online is not really a good option when I need diapers NOW. Luckily we have some awesome stores in the area that sell cloth…
Strangely, I often forget that buying online is not always the best deal but was reminded today that shopping locally can really be a great thing. I went over to Recycled Youth, a store that sells both new and used kids clothing, and snagged some used hemp inserts/doublers for $2 a piece, a used Polar Bummies cover for $3, a new Fuzzi Bunz w/insert ($17.95, nothing especially great about that), and two Mommy’s Touch One-Size AIOs. By some weird stroke of luck, the AIOs were only $17.95, a monster of a deal considering every place I’m finding them online is selling them for $2 more plus shipping. These babies come with two soakers and are supposed to be great for heavy wetters (yippee!) . This might just be our new nighttime diaper!
Folks, let this be a lesson to ya. Shop locally and you may just save some cash!
