Giveaways, not mine... yet

While the general idea of my blog has to do with healthy lifestyle and eating, there is definitely a thrifty aspect, so right now I'm blogging about two giveaways for Britax Frontier 85 carseats.  My "little guy" isn't very little.  He turned 3 in January and is 42 pounds and 40 inches tall.  I don't feel like he is old enough to be in a booster seat, but he is too big/too tall to fit comfortably in many of the carseats on the market.  In our main vehicle, he sits in a Britax Regent (which is awesome, but Britax no longer makes it).  In the grandparent's van, he has an Evenflo Big Kid booster and I'm not thrilled about it.  I'm sure it's a fine booster, but I'd like him to be harnessed as long as possible.  The Frontier harnesses to 85 pounds and can then be used as a booster to 120 pounds.  I would really like one, but they are pricey.  And, everyone can say there's no price to great for my child's life and while that's true, my budget doesn't seem to understand that.  Therefore, I want to win one from Mommy of 1 and Counting or Shining 2 Save.  If you are interested, I would head over to either (or both) of these blogs and check it out.


  1. hope you win!

    Just wanted to share that DS is very similar in size and still fits very comfortably in his Radian XTSL. He is roughly 40lbs at 3 also so is still RFing in his radian and will turn forward at the 45lb limit, I believe it harnesses until 85lbs? it's a great seat for taller kids! and great for extended rear facing

  2. oh and if you need help with the seat in the grandparent's car, there is lots of info out there about why kids should be harnessed long past 3, maybe that would help persuade them to add a little to the new seat fund? ;)
