And for my next trick...

>> Saturday, June 30, 2007

I'm frugal. Well, actually, I'm pretty cheap. There are things I will spend money on like my clothes (since I'm not likely to outgrow them in 6 months), shoes (ditto) and necessary scrapbooking tools (the Wishblade is extremely versatile).

But when it comes to expensive toys for the girls... I just can't do it. Like those $300 Power Wheels? Just. No. Way.

But yesterday my BIL called and said his neighbor was giving one away. It was in pretty rough shape and needed a battery, but it ran fine with a battery in it. So we picked it up.

Yep, it's seen better days. But I'm thinking that if I pull the stickers off, give it a good wash, paint it and make new stickers with my Wishblade (HA! More uses!) I can have it funkified within a week.


Be sure to watch for updates!

You can start your own show...
"Pimp my Power Wheels"!

I never did buy uber expensive toys when our girls were little either! Big waste!

And Brenna won't care - she will just have fun. Most of the expensive toys are for parents who want to show the world they have money.

That nice slope in your yard should make for some exciting rides.

Cool! Our neighbors have one of those. Very cute. Especially when it's free!!
