I was at the mall this morning. There was a new Land Rover parked inside. You could lease it for “only” $799 per month for 36 months! And only $1,500 or so down, or a trade-in.
Oh my stinkin’ word.
That’s more than I pay for rent. And it’s just a car. I don’t think it even looked that cool.
So you could pay $28,800 + the down payment over a period of three years, but be sure you don’t go over 10,000 miles per year or you’ll pay extra. At the end of the lease, you’ll have to return the car.
If there’s anyone out there who thinks leasing a car for that amount of money is a good idea, please smack ’em.
I was at the mall today to buy some cloth diapers from a mom. I picked up 18 new or like-new prefolds and 6 doublers for $25. I think I got a pretty good deal, as I could have paid $50 or more for the lot if I bought it new.
I have six pocket-style diapers (two Happy Heinys, one BumGenius one size, and three Smartipants). I have some covers that should arrive in the mail shortly.
So far, I’ve been underwhelmed with cloth diapering. My baby has soaked through his diapers and it looks like I’ll definitely need to double up on the inserts. Hopefully that’ll stop the problem!
Also, though I’m still breastfeeding him, he’s also eating some solids. His stools (sorry! TMI I know!) are kind of sticky and semi-solid. It’s not easy to get the stool off the diaper in a non-gross way. I haven’t yet purchased a diaper sprayer but it looks like I need to. Or, I might get some flushable diaper liners. Once he’s mostly on solids, I expect it’ll be easier to get the stool in the toilet. Right?
