Things that I've learned on the Bargain Board...

I am completely obsessed with the bargain board on It is a bunch of fun snarky moms who look for bargains and talk about EVERYTHING. Since first reading that board I've learned that you are tacky if you let your kids wear character clothing or light up shoes. Never poison your kids by giving them McDonalds. Truly loving parents will so what it takes to be able to afford a Britax carseat and you should leave them rearfacing as long as possible in that seat. School lunches should be done bento style and completely void of anything with red dye #40 and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup).

When you have your period you should use a diva cup. Keep your feet from velcro-ing to the bed sheets by using the pedegg. Always keep your "oval office" hair free with magic cream.

Always try to purchase these items from Target, Walgreens, CVS, or Linens and Things. These are Bargain Hunter approved stores. Use coupons and try to buy on Clearance. If there is a really good bargain where you can get items free or less than a quarter with a coupon hoard them and stack them in your basement like there's no tomorrow. It doesn't matter that your whole family is allergic to Huggies wipes, you may need 400 containers of them for something.

I've learned how to lance a boil at home. You can or cannot birth your baby at home with the help of your boyfriend's cousin's sister who is a vet tech. If your child is completely sick always ask the bargain board to diagnose before leaving for the ER. If your husband is cheating these knowledgeable ladies will help you get revenge. And always always always post any tacky birthday/baby shower/bridal shower/halloween party/christmas party invites that you get so we can make fun of them for days on end.

For those of you Bargain Hunters who notice something that I've left out, feel free to leave me a comment.
