Episode 4 – To buy or not to buy – Pops in a pod

It’s never easy to decide on how to plan your finances, especially when it comes to your own child.

Being first time parents most definitely adds pressure to your already fast-paced, time-hungry life. But to top it off when you have to mutually come to an agreement on setting aside monies for purchasing baby products can add fuel to fire.

This week on Pops in a pod Nadir and Peter delve deep into:

  1. Whether or not buying baby stuff for a brand new baby makes sense or not?
  2. How they didn’t want to buy because they wanted the baby to come out (gender, health, etc).
  3. What DID they actually buy?
  4. Their experiences and how they managed to get baby things without much expense.
  5. The wonderful boon of gifts
  6. The grandparents and how they lost their marbles

  1. With my first child, I wanted ALL the latest baby gadgets and things. The bay shower definitely helped knock some things off my list and I actually didn’t get any of the cool trendy things I wanted. It made me realize that I didnt actually need it so with my second child I stuck with purchasing essentials and nothing more. I even took gently used hand me downs from a close friend and was happy with that. Advertising really makes you think you need a bunch of unnecessary stuff.
