Last Thursday I drove out to Buy Buy Baby for baby noise cancelling headphones. We just got back from a trip to New York City that included a loud event for which the baby would need some ear protection. But I forgot to Amazon Prime them so had to find a store at the last minute. BBB to the rescue. I used a 20% off coupon, of course.
In the interest of time, I also bought disposable diapers there. We were almost out of her nighttime diapers (so I thought — I found some when I put the new ones in her closet) and I was trying to consolidate errands. Seventh Generation diapers were on sale so I bought two boxes. Their size 3 is meant for 16-28 pounds so this should hopefully take her to Size 4. We have a few more weekend trips coming up soon, plus we use one every night. Sometimes two.
BBB total: $67.74
And since I am writing this from the future, I can tell you that these super stylish headphones/noise blockers work great and look even better.
RAISING BABYSTAR: $5,711.38
I think I am spending too much money at Buy Buy Baby, but I should not be surprised. It’s right there in the name.
Today I went to find a baby carrier. Monday is the twelve hour college orientation day and baby seems to hate the K’tan. I think she is getting too hot.
I did tons of research last night and decided on the Boba 4G, but it turns out that Buy Buy Baby has tons of carriers on their website and hardly any in the store. Luckily, someone had returned a Beco Gemini to the store so I bought that one. Basic black, $150 but I had a 20% off coupon. So far I LOVE it.
I also bought some other things.
HALO Swaddle sleep sack $21.99
Fisher Price Bouncer (clearance floor model) $25
More Dreft laundry detergent $19.99
Two more fluffy blankets $30.98
More of her favorite pacis (those things disappear!) $17.97
Total with tax: $263.85
RAISING THIS BABY: $3,077.67
Today we went to Buy Buy Baby armed with a $350 gift card and a list. We got everything on the list and then some. After the gift card and coupons, we paid $131.45. I think I am ready for this baby.
