I was reading an article the other day about what to buy while you are waiting those short nine months until the baby comes. Funny thing was that it wasn't your usual list of diapers, wipes, and clothes. It was dishwasher tabs, laundry detergent, and house cleaners. Its all the things you have to buy in a normal month. When a baby comes you have little extra money. It all goes to the baby so it does seem wise to stock up on high ticket items before you have the baby. Like one thing a week. Or every paycheck spend 30 on things you will use around the house. We buy in bulk already so $15 on trash bags seems like a lot when you have no spare money but two boxes of those trash bags should last awhile. That's thirty dollars you won't have to spend once the baby arrives and you have to make adjustments. I think I will take this ladies advise and pinch all my pennies now while I have pennies to pinch.
