Bought so much already but check out my bargains! :)
So im only nearly half way through and i pretty much nearly have everything haha! I do like to be organised but i think ive taken it a bit too far this time! But a few things we did get in the sales or second hand which were bargains so i kind of had to get them there and then lol! So far i've got..
My pram - iCandy Cherry which we bought secondhand for £260! Such a bargain aswell as we got it with rain covers for carrycot and seat unit, plus the adaptors for maxi cosi car seat! Would have cost us £480 brand new, and this one is in amazing condition aswell
Crib - We got the swinging one from Mothercare, but again it was second hand but amazing condition! Normally £75 we got it for £20 off ebay and the seller was only down the road which was a result! (Just need to buy a brand new mattress and duvet set etc)
Cotbed and travel cot - My mums friend at work let us buy the white Mama and Papas cotbed plus a travel cot off her for £80 for both! I havn't actually seen it yet haha but my mum said its hardly been used as her daughter wants a 'proper' bed but for £80 for both how could i say no? haha
ALL my feeding equipment - Literally have all my feeding equipment now. Got the massive Tommee Tippee starter kit from Mothercare, normally £140, reduced to £70, how good is that! Includes electric steriliser, two travel bottle holders, bottles, teats, bottle warmer, loads of other bits aswell. Also in Sainsburys they were selling off Tommee Tippee electric breast pumps, normally £84.99, i got it for £22! Plus i work there so got 10% discount, was shocked! It was cheaper than getting a manual one so i was well pleased! Also already got feeding spoons/bowls, plus dummies etc that they were selling off at work Also they were selling Phillips Avent bottles for 20p as they didnt have the original box so i bought a couple just in case LO didn't like the Tommee Tippee!
Mass amount of nappes and wipes - I have been buying them in bulk really whenever i see them on offer! Plus if you sign up to the Boots Parenting Club you get vouchers for money off alot of Pampers and Johnsons stuff which is good! Sainsburys also had a good deal on Huggies wipes (£2.59 each with an offer of buy one get 2 free!) we bought loads lol!
Baby changing bag - Boots sent me a voucher for a free changing bag which included a Pampers changing mat! It normally costs £30 so was very happy. It is a bit boring just in black, but it does the job im sure!
Clothes - I've gone a bit OTT with clothes and all i have at the moment is white because i don't know the sex yet. I find out in a week so will probably buy even more bits! Also had a few bits given to me which is a bonus!
My mum also bought me a baby bath and her best friend has got me all the baby time toiletries/bits etc so i don't need to worry about any of that. Mother also bought me a baby walker which she won on ebay for £1! Haha!
Also you know the bounty packs? Well you used to be able to get them from Sainsburys but they have stopped it now for some reason, but there is still loads left in the warehouse out back, and because me and OH both work there they literally gave like 10 to us and told us to just take more if we want! Which was a result because there was so many free samples and coupons/vouchers etc that we have thousands!
Oh i do love a bargain! Any of you girlies get any good deals or anything! Let me know because im turning into a crazy woman!!
Oh how could i forget what i got the other day! The 'Tommee Tippee Sangenic Hygiene Plus Advanced Nappy Disposal System', which wraps the nappies and seals them in so basically you can't smell anything? Well they were in Mothercare for £25 but we popped into Babies R Us to see if they were cheper and they were £10! Happy days!!
Great bargains! Especially the cot! I got a custom fit new mattress of Ebay for £30 I think, I can find the seller if you wanted?
Word of warning about nappies, get a few of different brands as you may find LO leaks out of some and fits others better
Ooo yes please! Is it a good mattress? I have been looking on ebay but you never know if its dodgy or not on there! I'm a bit clueless when it comes to mattresses aswell as i've been told to get a 'breathable' one, which im not too sure about?
Yeah i've already got loads of huggies and pampers but i know sometimes not everyone gets along with them so need to get a few different brands! Tyxx
