Over the last couple of weeks, we have been looking at our budget and planning for baby #2. It's been a bit overwhelming. We need to get a few new things that can handle two kids and our first major purchase was going to be a double stroller. The stroller we wanted came with a price tag of $500, which was a steal. However, last night we ran into neighbors with a toddler that had a Skuut Bike.

After reading reviews, we decided that our toddler could handle going for long walks with the Skuut bike while our soon-to-be born infant could ride comfortably in the stroller.

We learned to cut the crust off and get to the middle of our goal in buying a new stroller - being able to go for long walks with two kids. The Skuut bike solves our problem and saves us around $400.

Welcome to Crust Cutoff. A blog about everything related to kids, career, and life - cutting the crust off everything and really getting to the good stuff.

As a child, many of us wanted the crust cutoff. It didn't have the peanut butter and jelly or the ham and cheese. But as adults, we have to eat the crust everyday.

After contemplating for months about starting a blog, I was stuck trying to find the perfect name. I wanted to encompass all of my ideas in one short blog name. The credit for the blog name is from a colleague that has to eat the crust of life everyday to get to the good stuff.

This is a guide to eating the crust with less pain to get to the middle where the laughter, fun, and excitement begins.
