Ways To Save Money When You Have A Baby
August 27th, 2017
Having a baby can be super expensive. It might be the endless number of products that companies try to sell to you. It could also be the fact that when you first have a baby, you think you need everything. You think that diaper bin is a good idea? Think again! Do you really want dirty nappy smell all around your house and babies bedroom? I certainly don't. Save yourself some money and bin (haha the puns) that idea right now. It's all about being strategic with your money. Think of it as if you have a certain budget you will spend on the baby, you can allow yourself some leeway with it then get buying baby stuff. When you know you have a budget then you won't buy totally unnecessary things. Being the best parent isn't about having all of the best things, it's about compassion and love for your child - do it with a little more in your bank!
Don't Buy That TV Product
I've just talked about it, and it couldn't be any truer. TV products are a load of crap, they're never any good and are definitely a waste of money! If you really want to save yourself some money (especially if you're a first-time mum) then don't cave in when you see extravagant products about for babies. Keep those pennies in the bank and just buy the things you need. No one is going to make you feel bad if you do.
Find Free Activities
There are always things to do and see with little babies. From baby yoga to just having a nice stroll in the park with the pram. Don't waste your money on activities for newborns that cost loads of money or courses that you're never going to find useful, just do your own thing. At the end of the day, something being free is a lot better than something costing money. Just find things that suit you in your area, theres always lots of things on!
