Preparing Financially for BabyMonday, March 20, 2017
How Did You Prepare Financially for Baby?
- Don't overspend on maternity clothes. I only got me 4 maternity dresses, and that's it! I do buy maxi dresses and shift dresses, like this Gray Shift Dress from Pinc by T.J. Maxx, pre-pregnancy size. You won't be pregnant forever. Save that money instead for baby's needs
- Research. Throw a simple baby shower. And don't hesitate to solicit your friends' opinion, especially those with 3 years old and below, on what's really necessary. If possible, ask them for old baby clothes or unused baby items.
- Make a baby registry from Amazon and get a free welcome box and other discounts. Take advantage of the free baby stuff from companies that sell baby items. For example, by creating a baby registry at Amazon you'll get a free welcome box and other discounts.
If you can, only buy those must-have items, based on the information you've gathered, like the car seat, diapers, wipes, baby clothes. And wait to buy for other the items on your list after your baby comes out.
