I have tons of clothing. Tons. My child will be outfitted from birth to 12 months. I have them separated into their proper bins according to size. If I don't get a BFP soon, I will need some more boxes.

I decided a couple of weeks ago that I wasn't going to buy any more baby stuff at all. Well, that didn't work well. I bought the onesie that matches StephieChelle's, the two stuffed animals, two pairs of infant jeans at Penney's (it was buy one get one for $.99), $37 worth of stuff at our local baby thrift store, two pairs of shoes, $17 worth of stuff at a flea market, a onesie that says "Daddy's Girl," one that says "Night Owl," a 3 pack of organic onesies, and a pack of socks. All of these things, I believe, have been purchased since I vowed to not buy anything else, and those are only the things that I can remember right off hand.

I'm going to try to only purchase things that we would really need, since we don't need anymore clothing. The only clothing we need is a few pairs of pants, a couple more sleep 'n plays, and some jackets. We do need bibs, shoes, hats, cloth diapers, etc. so I am going to try to only pick those things up from now on.

These are some of the things I have bought in the last week or two, since I decided that I wasn't going to buy anything else.

Onesie that I bought at Goodies:

Stuffed animals from Penney's (They were buy one get one half off.)



Carter's shoes that I bought at a flea market for $2:

My mother in law bought these two. The bib is a teething bib, and I love the turtle on the blanket:



It's amazing how much money you spend when you vow not to spend any.

I also bought DH a shirt. I couldn't stand to pass up all the Father's Day shirts that are out. I bought him one that says "World's Greatest Dad" in a camo pattern. He doesn't know about it. It's hidden in our closet and will only come out when/if I get a BFP. That will be my little way to surprise him.

I'm going to try to only test while he's at work. If I get a BFP, I'll run directly to the store, buy a bag for his shirt, (or I might just go ahead and buy the bag now) and give it to him when he gets home. I hope I get a BFP before the shirt becomes moth eaten. No, wait....

I just bought 3 crib sheets to match my bedding! So I've got 4 matching crib sheets and a few random ones. I plan on getting 7 total.

LOL I said I wasn't going to buy anything either anymore and you should see the pile I bought yesterday at a thrift store when DH took me out to cheer me up.
