A great way to save money on baby equipment and items is to buy cheap baby furniture. Whether you are looking for baby furniture for your bedroom or nursery, there are lots of ways in which you can get better value for money.
This article will outline some places where you will find baby furniture at discounted prices and also give you a brief list of essential baby items and factors to consider before purchasing.
Buying baby furniture online is a great idea. You will have the benefits of being able to compare prices and also use online discount codes and coupons with your purchase. Three places to purchase online are:
Online Auctions: Auction sites such as eBay are a great way to grab a bargain. Most of the sellers there will be parents who have used equipment to sell. You can grab used furniture such as cribs for a fraction of the retail price because the parents are not concerned with profit margins unlike retailers. Make sure you only buy items that are in good condition and have only been lightly used.
Classified Ads sites: If you don’t find what you are looking for on eBay, you can try classified ads sites such as craigslist. Search for items in your local area so you can inspect them before you purchase. There are some great bargains on craigslist but not too many items – so be quick!
Online Retailers: Normally online retailers are not a good place to purchase from if you’re looking for a good deal. Brand new items will obviously cost more. However, some online stores will have seasonal sales so you may be able to pick up items on sale and save money. If you are purchasing from an online retailer, remember to use coupon codes to get further savings.
There are a few essential items that you will want to buy for your baby, these include:
Baby Cribs and Crib Bedding: Until your baby reaches the ages of 1 to 1 ½ years old, the ideal bed for this child is the crib. You can pick your crib out of many different types including wooden baby cribs. They are as versatile as the bedding but they all need to be strong and durable. When picking out the bedding for your baby furniture you should keep in mind that you don’t want anything that could harm your child. You should have narrow slats on the baby furniture as well as bumper pads that tie to the posts of the baby furniture, fitted sheets for the bottom and a comfortable sized blanket.
Change Tables: The changing table should have a comfortable pad that is waterproof, or leak proof. The pad does not need to be very thick, but just comfortable enough for the baby while laying on it. It is a good idea to cover the pad with a receiving blanket. You can get a variety of change table pads from flat to contour.
Baby blankets: Baby blankets or receiving blankets should be of soft, comfortable materials. There are many types of blankets on today’s market to choose from that will be soft and smooth with attractive and eye pleasing colors. These blankets can be purchased in colors and patterns that are different for boys and girls. They could be gender neutral as well. The color combination and the cute looking cartoons are common to both the gender.
