On A Budget? 10 Things You Should Buy Now

By Casi Densmore-Koon |

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.

    If you’re on a budget, why would you want to buy bottles? By deciding to bottle feed, you’re deciding to spend at minimum, $1000 each year, and honestly it’ll be closer to $3000, instead of feeding your child for free.

      Hi Stevie,

      Thanks for your input. However, everyone can’t breastfeed for various reasons so I thought it would be a good idea to include the bottles.

      Thanks for reading!
