Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget...Make That a Koolaid Budget!

June 9, 2009 07:02 by ehouston

Okay, so many of you have read the earlier post regarding my search for cool, modern baby furniture for our pending arrival.  Well, since then my husband was offered a promotion and we are now in the process of relocating to a new state.  With all the unplanned added expenses associated with everything that is going on this year I have been rethinking my baby buying budget.  I will admit, I have an uncanny ability to fall in love with the most expensive option and then I get obsessed.  I cannot help it!  Once I decide on a look and I am "feeling" it, it's all over!  So, after struggling with how to cut costs in some areas to justify the crib of my dreams I stumbled upon this....

The Olivia Crib from Baby Mod.

Now, it is not exactly what I was looking for (see dream crib below), but I am starting to really dig this new discovery.

Bassinet and Crib by Stokke.

So, the new find is not oval and will not eventually end up converting into two super cool curved chairs, but I am thinking it might be a great alternative.  The real kicker is this...I found it at Walmart.com! 

Now, I will be the first to admit I am not a fan of Walmart at all.  I actually described my last trip to this store as traumatic, not because I was desperate to find some curtains to ready our home for a showing, but because it is loud, bright, stuffed to the gills with products, and there are way to many weird people strolling the isles like they are cruising the boulevard on a Friday night (at least that's the case in my neck of the woods).  I also have an issue with a place where you can purchase a car battery, underwear and peanut butter all at once.  It's just not right. 

Places like this completely overwhelm me and I have to get out almost as soon as I walk in.  Give me a cute little homespun local boutique any day.  I will admit that I do have an affinity for the other big box store, Target, although I usually forgo the big, new version they recently built for the older, smaller one closer to home.  It's easier to take and if they don't have it, I don't need it.

So, what do you all think?  The Walmart (cringe) crib for $299.99 or do I cut corners and save up the $969.00 for the Stokke dream crib?

I vote for the {{shudder}} Wal-Mart one. I think it will also be easier to arrange in a room because it's rectangular. The one third price is a biggie with everything else you have going on.
