I can’t believe I’m this excited about buying a stroller! Seriously, it’s like a stroller buying high.

I’ve been drooling over a double stroller for months now and since Levi is getting really heavy to carry in the Moby and push Tru, I really wanted one soon. I’ve been shopping for a deal because I’m at this point in my life where, out of necessity, I just don’t/can’t buy stuff without a coupon/credit card reward points/amazing sale unless it’s like… food. And even then, I’m the lady walking through the store with my coupons in baseball card pages. Yep. That’s me. I LOVE coupons. I have them downloaded on my store card and so on and I save HUNDREDS a year just buying normal people amounts of whatever I was going to buy anyway. I’m not crazy coupon lady in the “we are eating ketchup for the next 3 months, 3 times a day because I layered 50 coupons and got it for $.07”. But I may have an incredible stash of diapers that I bought with coupons and finding deals on stuff I already buy might be an addiction kind of.

I said all that to say, I was becoming upset that despite my best deal-finding efforts, the stroller was just not couponable. <— It's a word. Look it up. So, I prayed about it because that's what I do. I talk to God all day, everyday. He's always there and it never ceases to amaze me how God cares about us. He cares about the big stuff that weighs on us and he cares about the most mundane little things that I almost feel ashamed to pray about. But God is in a relationship with me. He wants to know my needs and wants and he cares enough to listen even when it’s mundane and pathetic. So naturally I asked God to help me find the stroller I wanted at an affordable price. Used in great condition or preferably new. I had put the one I wanted in my cart on a.mazon earlier today. This evening, DH said I had better get one soon because his job takes their employees to a theme park every year and this is coming up soon. So I went on a.mazon and got ready to checkout when, there it was, they had just in the last few hours added ONE open box, like new, same color, same brand etc at a deep discount. I am so happy. πŸ™‚ I know it’s small and even silly to some but I know God put that there for me at just that time and I’m so thankful. πŸ™‚ I look forward to getting lots of use out of this new stroller this summer. πŸ™‚
