Hi, all! Can you believe that we're at the END of MARCH already? Holy cow! Time is flying! I'll be 30 weeks this week, and can hardly grasp that. I live in Kentucky, and we had a brief interlude of nice, warmer weather recently, and then the temperatures started dipping down again. We have a high of 40° today, and possibly snow flurries! But, Spring has to come, right?! I'm looking forward to being outside a lot more, really soon. With our new little one on the way, I've been on the lookout for a double jogger—at the right price, of course. And I wasn't shopping brand new either. So, Craigslist has come through, once again! We just picked up a gently used Babytrend double jogger this week. And even though we were a little cash-poor at the time, the seller was willing to take a trade+cash. I came away with the jogger, and it only cost me $25 out-of-pocket! Score! Now, on to this week's WFW...
**THIS WEEK'S WALLET-FRIENDLY WEDNESDAY is going to be open for 2 weeks! I will be away from my computer next week, so I decided to extend the link-up an extra week.
