Mommy's Moment: A Steal of a Deal!

I can just picture Hannah dinging her little bell as she rides along the sidewalk.
And what little girl wouldn't enjoy some streamers flowing in the wind as she rides along the way.

I already know what Hannah will put here: either rocks or one of her MANY stuffed animals. What a fun time she'll have!!

Okay, you all know how I love a good deal! And, also, how I've been trading in my Swagbucks points for Amazon gift cards. Well, I went hunting at Amazon to look at the trikes just to see if there were any good deals. And did I find one! This baby pictured above is on clearance! It's on sale for $27 ($37 with shipping). That's 61% off the original price. Well, it wasn't what I had picked out originally and it isn't a Radio Flyer. But, I read the reviews and it consistently got 4/5 to 5/5 stars. Not bad! Then Amazon, being the good sellers they are, mentioned how that cute little basket would go so nicely with this trike. I fell in love with it and knew little Hannah would too! So then I thought, well, if they sell baskets, do they sell streamers and bells (that was really why I liked the one I have always pictured. And sure enough they do! So, after doing the math I discoverd that purchasing the basket, streamers, and bell plus shipping in addition to this bike would still be cheaper than the trike I had originally picked out! Yahoo! So, today, I went ahead an purchased this tricycle (just in case it sold out) with my Swagbucks...right now $35 of my Swagbucks have been credited to my account...$10 is still in the works. So, I got this trike for $2.61! Then, with my remaining Swagbucks I'll knock off the basket, then the streamers, then the bell. Yay! I just love a good deal!!

The last purchase I made with my Swagbucks at Amazon? Badger bug stick for the skeeters. Really romantic, I know. But free is good, right?
