You may have noticed that gliders are heavily overpriced these days {exhibit A}. Much like items becoming more expensive when you put the word “wedding” in front of them {wedding flowers, for example}, baby items are overpriced, often because they are necessary and people are willing to pay the price.

Overpay, no more! I found this clever little DIY swivel rocker. So mommas, find yourselves a handy husband, brother, father, friend, or neighbour {they don’t have to be THAT handy, don’t worry}, and you have yourself a rocker for under $300. Thank you, Ikea! And yes, the cover is washable. You’re welcome.
