Thrifty Thursday #7

I had to convince myself that today's Thrifty Thursday* isn't gross. Yes, at one point in time, it was filled with poo, but I promise it's squeaky clean now! Here it is, a Diaper Dekor Plus with one refill:

Scooter looks like he has no soul here.

Craigslist Price: $10
Babies R Us Price: $49 ($40 for the Dekor, $9 for one refill)
Amount Saved: $39
Amount Left Before I Can Justify Buying My Joya Rocking Chair: $485

I'm still trying to get a stroller from a Craigslist seller, but he doesn't like my offers.

*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.

I'm new to your blog, but I just wanted to say that splurging on a good glider is completely worth it. It will justify itself in the first few months with a baby at home. I spent waaaay more time in mine than I ever imagined and am so glad we went with the one we really liked that reclined. The recline was key for squeezing in naps.

So excited that you are getting so close.
