Again, for our local readers, Grand Rapids holds a JBF sale every 6 months so you only need to figure out what items and clothes you need for the next 6 months and then plan to come to another JBF sale in the fall.
A way to keep yourself in check when going on a spending outing like this is by making a list! I like to make a spreadsheet of what I already have and what I need. IT ONLY WORKS IF YOU USE THE LIST….cough cough, I may have overspent myself. You can find more pointers about what is needed for a new baby (without breaking the bank) by checking out our previous post about having, The Ultimate Baby Registry.
