“I’m going to give myself a $100 budget and stock up on some household items and snacks for when baby arrives.” 😂👍
Just told myself, “I’m going to give myself a $100 budget and stock up on some household items and snacks for when baby arrives.” That’s funny.... $239.00 later and not a single food item bought (besides drinks).
However my husband and I each have a couple of shampoos, soaps, deodorants, face washes, shave creams, and razors waiting for us.
I got three tubes of each: dish soap, laundry detergents (baby and adult), disinfect wipes, hand sanitizer, trash bags, and a few packs of sponges. I also grabbed some paper plates, bowls, and utensils because we don’t have a dish washer.
I got 30 rolls of paper towel and 24 rolls of TP.
Breastmilk cookies, nipple care, and breast pads. 60 over night pads and 40 always disposable underwear. 🤣 Hemorrhoid cream and stool softener too (not currently needed but my OB recommended having some waiting).
Two months worth of cat food and litter for the boxes. The last thing I want to do is have to go get my cats food or litter with a newborn!
Three 32 packs of water. We usually avoid bottled water like the plague, but everybody tells us we will want some in the house? First time parents here!! Three 8 packs of Gatorade.
And to top it all off....... A STEAM MOP! I’ve wanted one for years and finally treated myself to it. Having a baby who will learn how to crawl and walk on these floors was a great excuse!
I called my mom panicking about the money I spent. She said that I won’t regret it at all. My husband and I live on the opposite side of the country from our families and he will not be taking many days off from work so I will be by myself. Better to be prepared I guess. Now on to food. You’d think we live out in the woods away from the markets ... we are legitimately less than a mile away from a Walmart.
38 weeks 💙 we are ready for you baby boy!
