They’re here! They’re here! I’ve never been more excited to see the Skynet delivery man outside my house.
I’ve been doing some “wise shopping” recently by taking advantage of the great year-end bargains to stock up on Ewan’s cloth diaper (CD) stash. So when I found out that Clarissa from Mama Paradise is bringing in the Bumgenius 4.0 Artist Series – Chelsea Perry Tiny Socialite Collection, I couldn’t breathe for a while (OK, maybe 2 seconds). Bumgenius, first time in printed designs! They have them in Eiffel Tower (black) and Concrete Jungle (red), the two colours missing in our CD collection! We have to have it! Even Ewan agreed; he drooled when I showed him the designs from my laptop.
So we did, at a special price of RM80 each. Pricey but really, you get what you pay for. Our old Bumgenius CDs still look as good as new despite being used for more than 6 months with a minimum of 2 washes weekly, compared to its cheaper, local counterparts which have started showing signs of wear and tear. So it’s a good INVESTMENT!
Then, Baby-Mel announced its gala sale. Gosh! Fuzzibunz at RM69 with a saving of RM19 each! Double gosh. The lady boss, Angelia, who is so friendly and accommodating, offered me more discounts here and there. Triple gosh. You tell me, how to resist?! So Fuzzibunz for Ewan to try it is then.
Then, May Yee sent us an email to say that Gifts from Heaven is having a sale too. Their cloth diapers – printed designs yo…- are going at RM37.80! Oh dear, where can I find such cute design at such price?! Besides, baby really needs more CDs. Besides again, we haven’t tried this brand before and it’s more affordable too. So it’s a need, not a want. Right? Right! That’s why we need to choose our friends properly; friends like May Yee shares good shopping tips! *wink wink*
I actually ordered 1 piece only but they sent me the wrong, old plain design (RM31.50). Instead of returning and exchanging the CD (which is a hassle), the owner Hennie gave me the option of keeping the current CD and get another at RM10 rebate + refund of price difference + free delivery. That means, I only paid RM21.50 for the printed design! Fabulous deal, isn’t it?
Then (yes, another then), my sister-in-law decided to give me two brand new Coolababy. For fhweeeeeee…! FOC. You tell me, how to say no?!
Hence, from a 12-CD stash, our collection grew to 19 within a week. I’m a contented mommy, E is a happy
drooling baby too. Hubby is frowning a little though. I shall stop shopping for new CDs this year (and resume next year) 🙂
Please pardon my craze for cloth diapers, only PG will understand this ‘disease’. Hers is severe, mine is almost severe. Right, PG? 😉
