Im a lucky girl!

I Pride myself in knowing I can get WHATEVER I want, sometimes I just get my way (like with my sweet husband that gives in all the time), Sometimes I have to work at it by being persistent, bargaining or bartering, and even manipulating if I have to, and sometimes I just have to be patient and the wanted thing will just land in my lap or in some cases something better comes and I am happy I didn't get what I thought I wanted. Whats my point? Well today I got what I wanted by working at it and being patient! I bought this stroller a few months ago regular price $140 I paid $70 I then sold it on Craigslist for $120 because it wasn't exactly what I wanted in a double stroller. I have been on the look out for a Sit and Stand but I was particular about it because I wanted one with a snack tray for both kids (the newest models have that) but was I willing to pay full price and pay an extra $50-$60 for a snack tray? I sure did think about it! But we all know I am NOT a full price shopper so I knew what I wanted and I knew I would get it. I searched Craigslist for something more affordable but of course no one was selling a new model sit and stand. Today I dropped Kreg off at school downtown and the thought kept coming to me go to the Salvation Army Target, I didn't fight the thought much because I LOVE the store, but I kept thinking stroller, I had never seen strollers there before so I kept thinking there is no way they would have a stroller let alone one I want. Well I went and I found immediately this stroller! It is a new model, brand new sit and stand with two snack trays! I don't love the fabric color but, I don't hate it and since its regular price in the store is $160 I couldn't help myself to the price of only $80!!! Yup that's right I paid less for a brand new, new model Sit and Stand than I ever could have gotten and old, used one off of Craigslist. So all in all I made money off of my stroller purchases and ended up with just what I wanted!! I don't know if its luck or if its my small miracles in life because Heavenly Father knows how happy a sweet deal and shopping make me!
