There’s no doubt about it – having a baby is expensive. You’re certainly going to need some new items, but don’t be impatient. Shop around early and search for deals. According to Baby Cheapskate, you’re bound to find them:

Disposable Diapers and Wipes

Diapers and wipes are always on sale. You just have to shop around.

Right now at Amazon we’re seeing some of the lowest prices on diapers since I started the blog nearly six years ago. Let’s say there’s a six-cent difference between the full price of a diaper and the price YOU pay. At eight diapers per day, your smart shopping would save you $175 over the course of a year. NEVER pay full price for diapers.

Baby Monitors

Even the top selling baby monitors out there are constantly discounted according to Baby Cheapskate.

The Philips AVENT Digital Video Baby Monitor, for example, lists for $219.99. It’s been at least 10% less than that at Amazon for nearly a year. With the exception of a few days, it’s been 20% or more off list price for the past six months, and it’s been around 30% off or more for the past two months.
