What I need to do is get a handle on my shopping. Here’s how that’s looking like right now:
- BABY REGISTRY PURCHASES – when will this madness ever end? I’m sure my husband wants to kill me as I purchase items through our registry, analyze what’s on there, edit, remove, delete, change quantities. You name it, I’ve done it. And I revamp and review our registry every day. This doesn’t include my Amazon wish list where I park items that I need to purchase for the postpartum period. Today I actually pulled the trigger and purchased all my postpartum items. Hopefully that should keep me quiet for awhile and the shopping can cease.
- CLOTHING PURCHASES – Okay, I’ve said it before over and over again – we are all good with the clothing. I have a decent stock of newborn, 0-3, 3-6, 6-9 clothes. I shouldn’t buy anymore. But then I see sales – like take an additional 40% off the entire site of Burts Bee’s Organic Clothing – and it’s like a shopping spree that I can’t just ignore!!
- SWADDLES – I mean, how many of these do I have… A LOT. I have about 6 swaddle blankets, 2 swaddle me wraps, plus 2 NB Halo wraps / wearable blankets, 2 small wearable blankets and 2 medium wearable blankets. I need to stop buying blankets and swaddles!! I just noticed that another girlfriend bought me 4 more swaddles (via my registry) and I hate to do this – but they may get returned. I’m sure I could use them, but then it UPS my swaddle blankets to 10 swaddle blankets. That is a LOT!!! Even though I could come up with multiple uses for them… I’m going to really have to think if I should keep them.
Otherwise, without the little guy here – I honestly don’t know what we need and what we don’t need. For all I know, I need more socks…. I don’t know. He’s now got TONS of hats that I really should sew open holes to the top of them for the dogs when baby boy grows out of them!!
