On A Budget? 10 Things You Should Buy Now

In my opinion it’s best to spend the extra to invest in baby gear because it will last through a few kids and well, you pay for what you get. However, not everyone can do this so I decided to share the top ten things you should buy if you are on a budget. This follows up to my post from earlier this week – 10 things I would buy again. Some see the word budget and think cheap but you can find the must-have essentials at a fraction of the price.

Having a baby is expensive so you really have to stretch your pennies and only buy what you need. You really don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on gear or waste it on tons of baby stuff. Believe me, it won’t help raise an amazing child.

Need to save money for the college fund? Don’t fret! Here are 10 things you should buy right now (under $200)  if you’re on a budget, after the jump.
