Amazon, you're sly like a fox


Your sneaky plan has worked. I signed up for your mom club-- the one that gave me free 2-day shipping for three months. Now I'm hooked.

I, the queen of cheapskate-frugal-folks, am now sorely tempted to fork out $79 for an Amazon Prime Membership. You gave me a taste of a beautiful thing-- having that nice UPS lady bring me stuff do my door (in 2 days! for free!), instead of having to drag my 4 crazy monkeys all over town looking for a store that carries what I'm looking for. The thought of going back makes me shake in my boots. There, are you happy now?!

yours sincerely (if a bit grumpy),


**On a completely different note: be sure to check back in on Monday for an exciting announcement. You won't want to miss it!**

So true!!!!! I purposely didn't sign up for the mom-club b/c I was afraid I would never be able to turn back!!! I HATE paying for shipping. HATE it! (I use that word strongly for a reason). But, I find myself thinking ..."How many times do I need to order something in order to justify the $79????" I'm glad it's not just me that struggles with it! :)

You don't have to shell out the big bucks. If you buy $25 worth of baby stuff it extends your mom membership by one month each time you spend that, before coupons. I get diapers there for cheapola. I'm riding on my 5th free month and I L.O.V.E it!
