Even though you’ve registered for a baby shower, you don’t want to overspend because the invitations were mailed out. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you save money on baby products.
Tips and Tricks:
1. Look for store-wide sales.
Most stores offer different discounts at different times of the year, so be sure to keep an eye out for sale signs throughout the year. Most stores also offer coupons via their website or at the front desk. Check them out!
2. Make a list of baby items and baby-related products you plan to buy and mark them on your calendar. Resist the temptation to register for every baby product that appeals to you; you will keep finding more products once your child arrives.
3. Research reviews for each product you are considering buying, and find out what other people have said about it. This will help you determine whether the product is worth the price tag.
4. Buy a travel system, if possible; it will save you money in the long run because you won’t need to buy a stroller and infant car seats separately.
5. Purchase a used car seat from someone who no longer needs it in good condition or buy one from an auction site for kids’ products like UK hot deals. Just make sure it’s for your child’s weight and that you’ve washed it before use.
6. Don’t be afraid of being judged. A lot of people are afraid of being judged for wearing clothes that are a little off the beaten path.
7. Consider buying a used crib with all its parts (mattress, frame, and sheets) from someone who is not using it. Just make sure the mattress is in good condition and hasn’t been recalled, and wash off dust with soap and water before use.
8. Write a list of all the essential baby items and baby-related products you’ll need, such as clothes and diapers.
9. Find the right amount of clothing before you start buying clothes; it’s easy to go overboard if you don’t know how much baby will grow in the first year of his/her life.
10. Take advantage of all available coupons to get hot deals on pregnancy and baby-related products, when possible.
11. Take into consideration the cost of education and extracurricular activities when calculating your budget for the baby’s first year.
12. Buy clothes for your baby in a couple of sizes at a time. This is because babies grow more rapidly than you think in the first few months, especially during the first six weeks of their lives, so it will take you a while to figure out which size fits them the best.
In conclusion, to get more hot deals, ask members of the baby shower planning team to help you calculate your baby’s daily needs of food and diapers. Buy more diapers than you think you’ll need; remember that babies grow quickly, so it’s easy for them to outgrow what you buy in a few days.
