First Purchase for Baby Lili's Mom HasGotitGoinOn Due March 1; 1 child; Connecticut 3387 posts

I'm only 14 weeks, so I'm in no rush to buy anything whatsoever, however I have a couple of coupons that need to be used before the end of the month. I have a 20% off purchase BRU coupon, & a $5 off $25 I can combine with it. So should I buy something or just let them go to waste? What would you buy?

The first thing we bought was a travel system.

I'm only 8 weeks but the carseat I want is on 50% off so I'm going to be buying that. I've been told its never to early, just depends if you know what you want.

I always buy one gender neutral outfit and blanket. You can't go wrong with the essentials though(diapers,wipes, wash etc).

We bought our travel system first since it will be the first thing we need (obviously to take him/her home in) and because we had a 20% off coupon about to expire and plus it was the most expensive item we would have to purchase. We bought it at 14 weeks since we were out of our first trimester and it is gender neutral. Our next purchase will be the bassinet.



This is what we bought:

The coupon says no wipes or diapers lol but I was thinking maybe a jj cole bundle me carseat cover? They're like $40, so I'll end up paying like $28. So possibly that, or a cute blanket or something lol

BRU has a deal this weekend if you spend $150 or more you get a free baby monitor.

Either a carseat, because you KNOW you're going to need that, diapers and wipes, or a good crib (a convertible) and a mattress.

We bought a crib before we even got pregnant, cause our other daughters crib had been recalled and the voucher they sent was about to expire...then the next thing was a car seat, because it was black [gender neutral] and on-sale!



I would definitely buy one of the bigger ticket items and get a good chunk taken off with your coupons! Just hang on to your reciept and you'll be good...
