Welcome to another Cheapskate Challenge. For the past few weeks we’ve been exploring quality baby product choices for those on a super-tight budget. We’ve covered cribs and accessories and “baby on the go” items. Today we’re talking baby entertainment on the cheap.
Scenario 1: You have $50 to spend on a swing, rocker, and/or bouncy seat (or similar entertainment/soothing item) for a new baby. What do you buy? Why
Scenario 2: You have $100 to spend on a swing, rocker and/or bouncy seat (or similar item for a new baby. What do you buy? Why
Think carefully. Choose items with the highest quality possible rather than simply choosing the cheapest items you can. All items must be new and in stock. Include shipping charges in your total. You can exclude sales tax.
This giveaway is now closed to new entries. Check back later to find out who won! Enter your items for scenario #1 and scenario #2–complete with item names, links, prices and reasons– as a comment below by tomorrow at 5 pm ET.
This challenge is also a giveaway! I’ll select a winner randomly from the comments that meet the criteria I’ve outlined here. The winner will receive a $25 Amazon.com gift certificate. You must be 18 or older to enter. One entry per household.
I’ll share some of your ideas in a post on Monday.
