Bedtime just got easier

Since Morgan has recently learned how to crawl out of his crib and since he is two and a half, we decided that now would be a good time to get him a toddler bed. We decided this a few months ago. I've been looking on craigslist for a good deal on a toddler bed, but there were hardly any at all! I looked in Boise and there were always some toddler beds. So why wouldn't SLC or the Provo area have any? There are more babies in Utah, I'm pretty sure, and the city is bigger.
Then Aaron told me about KSL classifieds. I'm a convert. That's where all the ads go. It's even more user friendly than craigslist. Love it.
The second time I looked at it I found the toddler bed that I've been wishing for. It's the blue racecar kind. I'd find these sometimes, but usually way out of our budget just for the frame. I found one in practically new condition AND it came with a mattress and a sheet for only $50! Woot! So we got it.
Morgan LOVES it. He was so excited when we were setting it up.

Morgan likes being in bed much more now, so bedtime and naptime haven't been an issue.
The first day, every time he went into his room and saw his new bed he would gleefully shout, "Car!" or "McQueen!" It was like he'd forgotten it was there and had a happy reminder.
Yesterday when we got home from church Morgan immediately went up to his room to visit his bed. I'm happy he likes it so much.

That is awesome! I am a regular on KSL. It is like a yard sale without the yard! We've had many a good find there!

Killer deal! We used to have this toddler bed for Ryker and Cooper had the firetruck bed! Makes for a super cute room and they spend so much time in their playng that its well worth the money! AWESOME that it came with a mattress too cause then your crib and it's mattress are all ready to go when the time comes! ;o)

YAY for you and bargain-hunting, Melanie!!!
I recently saw some car beds advertised somewhere and thought "wouldn't Morgan love that?"
I can just imagine his delight.

I've heard that KSL is the way to go in Utah...my in-laws love it.
Good job on the bed find. I've always wanted a car bed for Treyson, but never got him one (he's still a huge "Cars" fan and he's 7, going on 8). He'd be WAY too big for it now..but I'm sure he'd tell me he wasn't.

So I googled "KSL Classified Boise" to see what is was, and your blog was one of the results that came up! And it was near the top!
