Babies are an industry. Everything marketed for babies has a price tag attached to it. Knowing that our income will be reduced during my one year maternity leave, Ryan and I have chosen to not play into the commercialism of becoming parents. Instead, we plan to buy the few big ticket items that we will actually need during the first year now, in order to reduce expenditures once baby arrives. There are few items that our baby will actually "need" during his/her first year of life. Besides, we live in a 700 sq. ft. home, and we don't have the space to store extra "stuff".
With that being said, however, there are a few "things" that I have been lusting over for quite some time now. These are are some ridiculously over-priced items, that I would never pay full price for, but for which I comb the Internet for on an almost daily basis, looking for discount price-tags.
