Today's Thrifty Thursday* isn't something we'll need as soon as our baby arrives, but I hope we'll get some use out of it when he's 5 or 6 months old (or however old babies are when they start doing things). Here it is, a Fisher-Price Jumperoo from the Luv U Zoo collection:
|Not that there's anything wrong with this house, but it isn't mine. This photo came from the seller.|
Ebay Price: $59 (including shipping, which was 1/3 of the total price)
Target's Price: $90
Amount Saved: $31
Amount Left Before I Can Justify Buying My Joya Rocking Chair: $524
Still going after an awesome item on Craigslist, but the seller has a hard time answering e-mails. Hopefully next week!
*An explanation of Thrifty Thursdays:
According to my readers, I should spend approximately $300 on a rocking chair. I've already admitted that I'll be spending a whoppin' $1,000. That's a difference of $700.
To offset this $700, I plan on saving money elsewhere. Every week, I'll buy something for the baby from Craigslist or Ebay, and the amount of money I save will go toward this $700 difference. So, say I score a $200 stroller on Craigslist for $100. The $100 that I saved will be "banked," and I'll have to save $600 more to justify purchasing my glorious rocking chair. For a more in-depth explanation, see this post.
