The glider is here!

Even though it’s going in our bedroom for now, I think this definitely counts as our first big nursery purchase. It’s the Savvy model from Little Castle that’s only sold at buybuyBaby stores (not online). We sat and rocked in this and some other models at the store, including Dutailier, which so many friends recommended, but actually found this to be more comfortable – and even better, less expensive, even including the gliding ottoman! I can definitely see myself sleeping in this as the pregnancy progresses, as it gets more uncomfortable just laying on my side.

Since buybuyBaby is part of the same company as Bed Bath & Beyond, they accept their coupons (non-expired only as opposed to BB&B’s more lenient policy) and gift cards. I bought some BB&B gift cards at 9% discount from Raise, combined it with a $100 off furniture coupon from bbB, and voila, bought the chair for 75% of its retail price!

We already have a mid-century dresser in the guest room/nursery, which we’ll top off with the Keekaroo Peanut Changer in aqua I bought from Giggle.com during the holiday cyber sale. That just leaves the crib, which we plan to pick up from Ikea in a couple weeks, along with a Kallax shelving unit for the closet, and some other odds and ends. Ikea has some simple, inexpensive toys too, so we’ll also pick some up while we’re there.

S***’s getting real now!

        I love a good deal!! I decided to use a rocking chair that my parents bought when I was a baby instead of buying a glider – really to save money, but I suppose the meaning is nice too.
