I know I have 6 months until I pop since I am only 12 weeks, but when you are on a budget you need to space purchases out! Today Peggy (my amazing UPS driver) pulled up in her magical brown truck and brought me three packages! Today brought me: a Munchkin Step diaper pail compliments from the Baby Guy NYC and one of his giveaways on FB!, a Badger Basket three drawer organizer that I scored on sale, & a Muslin car seat canopy that I received at a discount in exchange for my review. A blog post was not required for any of these items but I am just having fun!
**I added affiliate links at the very bottom of the post if you want to check these items out! The cost is the same for you, but any purchase helps this blog grow!**
First I decided to open the Muchkin Step (search the hashtag #diaperstank on Facebook for Jamie’s really funny post on it). The box was not frustration free packaging haha! I had to rip it open and use scissors that happened to be my 5-year-olds safety scissors, so that was fun. Luckily it came assembled! All I had to do was snap the baking soda pod in, and the bags were already installed! I am planning to use it with my cloth diapers since I found a seller on Etsy who makes diaper pail reusable liners for both Munchkin & my other Diaper Genie, so I am very excited to order those in the upcoming months. For now I will put his disposables in the Munchkin. All the parts are easy to use so far. The only thing is you use your foot to open the lid with the step, but you need to use your hand to close the lid. So hopefully you don’t have any of that “stank” on your hand 😉
The second thing I decided to open was the Badger Basket organizer. My 5-year-old Nayeli decided she needed to help me so I had her hold the sides up for me so I could insert the screws. From start to finish it took less than 10 minutes so that was awesome. The drawers are already fully assembled, so all you have to do is screw in three separate boards. The only thing that confused me for all of 3 seconds was the diagram showed the back support board as being flat, but really it needs to go the other way. The front board I put on flat like the diagram, but I think it would have been fine either way. You would have to buy one to see what I am talking about haha.
The last item of the night was just opening the muslin car seat canopy to check it out. Nayeli said it needed to go in the drawer so I let her put it in there! It even came with a free washcloth and a discount code for 10% off my next purchase from their website. I haven’t washed it or tried it on the car-seat yet, but I will review it fully on amazon when I’m done checking it out!
Nayeli and I had fun checking out all the new baby gear of the day!
