I love our Roundabout 55 and they run about $160.
Is the 24 month old still RF?

I second the roundabout 55. Shop around and you can probably find a sale and free ship.

Re: 2 carseats needed buget of $300

Do you have your older dd forward facing in a Britax convertible in your car? If so, I'd think about moving that to your sitter's car and turning it rear facing for the baby. Then get an evenflo maestro for the older kid in the sitter's car ($80, or less on sale) and get a nice forward facing seat for the older child in your own car. You can get nearly any seat for $220, including a Britax Frontier 85 if you decide you like it.

If you are looking for a deal, the Evenflo Triumph Advance is on sale at BRU right now for $109 as a part of their big in-store carseat sale. It is a nice seat and a good price.

The True Fit Premier is $160 at BRU, but I agree with the PP's suggestion of the Evenflo Triumph Advance, if price is a great concern.
