Buying baby products... Would you rather:

Buy stuff as they go on sale, slowly through the 9 months...


Buy stuff all the way at the end using some big discount, like the registry discounts?

I thought I was going to buy things at the end in June... using the big registry discounts, but found some stuff that either a) is more on sale now than the registry discount would be or b) is going out of stock or something and I want to have it before they run out!

I'm going with buy the little stuff as they go on sale so that I don't take the hit all at once and feel like I'm accomplishing something. AND a wait until the end and take the big registry discount on the big stuff at the end so it's not yet taking over me house.

I will buy a bunch of stuff next month after my yard sale and then again right before babe gets here. And probably again right after he is here lol

Gradually! I've been buying baby clothes each week on sale at the store or thrift stores and we bought our first package of diapers last night

So far we have been waiting for #1 - to go through all the hand-me-downs from my friend that I am hoping to bring the rest of it all home this weekend and #2 the baby shower in May since DH's mom and gma are wanting to do something big for us, there wont be much left on the registry after this weekends haul so I am trying to leave things like bedding and crib for the registry.

The first option fits best although most of the baby stuff will be used if I can find it that way, from family or from a store. If I find an awesome deal I may go ahead and buy it new though.

We're going to my brother's house tonight so I'll find out what baby stuff they have left and see if I can borrow it.

Yeah, every time we go into it thinking we will buy as we go along, but it never fails, a month before the baby arrives it's like 'crap, where is this baby going to sleep???' I'd like to say it is a strategy, but mostly procrastination. Luckily we have most the essentials from the last baby and the more kids we have, the less I feel like we need. So less to buy at the end anyway.

Ugh! I need to get on the ball with this. I STILL have bought absolutely nothing. I think its because of the fact that while the outfits are so super cute, I am intimidated by all the choices and sizes and just plain not knowing where to begin. Not to mention the fact that I didn't want to start buying stuff until we finally moved because I really don't have room for any extra stuff right now.

My baby boy!

I buy stuff as I go, as I find deals. I bought my cosleeper a couple of months ago because it was on a great sale. I have most of her clothing (thanks to my mom and finding stuff as I went shopping). I'm going to start looking more closely at the bigger items I need now, since it's actually getting close to her due date.

Seeing as how I have not bought much, I guess I will get things with registry discount.

I'm buying things slowly because to buy everything at once would be super expensive.
