Here at Little Devils Direct one of our key aims is to help make bringing a little one into the world as enjoyable as possible. For many of you, that means making the process more affordable without the need to compromise on quality, style, and the safety of your child. As parents who have brought up a baby on a budget ourselves, we are often asked if we’ve got any hints and tips for those of you out there who are doing the same.
To help you out, we’ve been spending a lot of time pulling together the ultimate guide to preparing for a baby on a budget. It goes from analysing your cash flow and identifying easy ways to cut back, to advising on the purchase of second-hand items. With such a wide range of choice and an ever increasing array of gadgets being touted as must-haves to expecting parents, we share the things that we found to be:
- Absolute essentials
- Not a necessity, but a worthwhile investment
- A definite luxury, but still nice to have
- Rarely used
This can help you prioritise your spending and prevent you from wasting money before baby has even arrived.
We also offer our tips on shopping around for the best price and purchasing multifunctional items such as cot beds and 3-in-1 Travel systems that can help to save money in the long run. We’ve even written an extensive section on how to keep equipment and sterilisation costs to a minimum when it comes to feeding your little one!
We’ve still got a little bit of work to do, as every single day a new idea or piece of advice for it pops into our head, however, we are very excited to share our guide and our experiences with you. We can’t wait till it’s finished and will keep you updated on its progress.
Is there any aspect of preparing for a baby you would like our guide to address in particular? Or would you like to see a guide on another parenting subject? Just let us know in the comments and we’ll see what we can do!
