As your pregnancy progresses, make sure that you think about other ways to save money so you can have your baby on a budget. You’ll want to take a look at how to create a personal budget if you haven’t already. You’ll also want to decide whether you should use cloth diapers and if cloth diapers can save you money or not (hint: they won’t save every family money). You’ll also want to make sure that you don’t overbuy items for your baby since doing so can cause you major financial trouble. When you’re buying the items you need for your new baby, keep these 10 items you really need for baby in mind so that you don’t overspend. You also may want to check out these 30 things to stop buying and make since they will help you cut your household expenses significantly.
Free $10.00 gift card from Ebates ($10.00 value) – When you’re buying all that baby gear, why not get paid for it? Sign up for an Ebates account and you can do just that! Ebates has a special relationship with thousands of stores and when you shop through Ebates, they earn a small commission. Ebates then turns around and pays you a portion of that commission back as cashback. Plus, when you sign up for Ebates using THIS link, you’ll earn $10.00 FREE on your first purchase of $25.00 or more!
Surprise Package of Goodies. When you join Amazon Prime and create a Baby Registry, you’ll become eligible for a Welcome Box valued at $35. The only catch is that you must either buy a $10 item or wait for someone to purchase something off your registry before the Welcome Box will be shipped to you. Once that is done, click the Claim Now button to add the Welcome Box to your cart. The box changes monthly, so the contents are truly a surprise, but Amazon claims it contains items for both parents and baby.

Books. Some of my most treasured childhood memories are of sitting on my mother’s lap while she read to me. It’s a tradition I kept alive with my own children. We lived about an hour from the nearest town with a library, so I was quite thankful to learn about Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. This amazing program will send your child a free book every month until he is five years old. Just check the site to see if your area is eligible. If not, check out this list of free Kindle books for little ones! Or just check it out anyways—books are awesome.
