Money was one the things I panicked about when I found out I was pregnant you hear and read all this stuff about how expensive having a baby is, a quick google search suggests it can cost between 1000 and 10000 pounds just for the first year.
I had started reducing my debts but the fact remains they are still there and I would rather not be getting into a lot more debt.
I’ve always been a bargain hunter but pregnancy has meant I have jumped on the e-bay train
so far I have brought
- A silver cross travel system with car seat £66
- A moses basket with stand and baby bath £4.99
- A travel cot £6.60
- A bouncy chair £1
I have also picked up several bargains at pre loved markets such as little pickles, including a very nice brown leather changing bag.
Though I can easily see how people spend lots of money. I have started being tempted by cute outfits and little bits so trying to avoid the its only a few pound mentality
Theres a big incentive for saving money it means my debts won’t get bigger and hopefully I can afford to take the unpaid part of my maternity leave
Any tips or advice gratefully received
