Tub Time

You know how sometimes you see something on Apartment Therapy, and you think, "I totally need that!" but it's like a million dollars and really, you probably don't technically need it?  That happened to me recently with the Puj Tub.  So darling, so practical, but I wasn't about to pay-- or ask someone else to pay-- $40 for a piece of foam. 

I was super-psyched when I volunteered to help set up for a giant children's resale in Madison, where I spied not one, but two of the coveted Puj tubs.  Of course, no shopping was allowed during set-up, so I had to wait until the next day for the volunteer pre-sale.  I made a beeline for the tubs... and they were both gone.  Apparently I wasn't the only one with my eye on them! 

Not being one to let things go easily, I went home and checked eBay, but that felt kind of gross for some reason, so I took a peek on Craigslist... and there was a Puj tub for sale in Milwaukee, still in the box and the plastic and everything, for $10.  I texted my sister, who lives in Milwaukee, and seriously like 5 minutes later she sent this picture: 

I have no idea how she did that so fast, but we'll chalk it up to a Pre-Baby Miracle.
Here we are at Easter, celebrating the fact that our baby will be bathing in style.

Totally amazing! Your sister pulled through. I hope you scored other awesome stuff at the sale, though :).

Hooray for finding one without the ick factor. You are always so awesomely thrifty.
