  4. Hi, I just read your post on money saving mom & loved it. Although my children are older (9 & 12), I wanted to comment on your photo that you included. I like the crate idea however, I had a tote (I think by Fisher Price) that served the same purpose. It was blue & yellow with a large open bin, and 3 additional pockets – for the front & 2 sides. It also had a long carrying strap to take it out of the vehicle. It was great to sit in the middle of 2 kids. The other useful addition it had was the strap/loop that the seatbelt went through to keep it more stationary (it also had velcro so you could undo it that way w/out unbuckling the seat belt. The reason I mention it to you is because your photo doesn’t appear to have the crate strapped down. It would be easily done on a crate. I just wanted to share that so that you might consider looping the seatbelt through it. In an accident, it would be once less object that could become a dangeous weapon. Just thought I’d pass along since all us moms have to stick together & look after our precious little ones. God Bless.

    • Thanks for your comment Julia. I was hesitant to put the crate in my car for that reason, however necessity took hold over reason in this case and I did it anyway. I will look into some kind of strap/velcro contraption to secure the crate to the car. I never even thought of it. Thank you for looking out for my family. I really appreciate such a nice blogger. Hope you have a wonderful day!
