Do you feel overwhelmed by the thought of walking into a baby store? Do you hear “cha-ching” each time you drop an item into your cart? Shopping for baby can be stressful, but here are a few ways to save.
Online discounts and coupons: Many retailers offer discounts and additional coupons if you register on their website. Discounts are also offered if you set up auto delivery on certain items. This is a double save by not having to haul a baby into a store on a hot Florida afternoon.
Organize your priorities: Sure, the bathroom needs to be remodeled or the kitchen needs updated cabinets. However, the baby won’t notice a thing. Stick to the necessities like nursery furniture and upgrading safety features.
It doesn’t have to be new: Women tend to be shoppers. So…what happens when one finds out that they are expecting? That’s right! Shopping overload! I went crazy buying clothes for baby. Jeans that cost almost as much as mine and enough onesies that would last until he was 18 years old. After talking to friends, they told me that they would love to give me their gently used (or never worn) baby clothes for free. Whew! I think I saved enough money to pay for his first year of college.
