I've got a lot of shopping to do:)

Oh boy you need a lot of things when expecting a baby! And boy do I love looking around deciding what to get and what not to get:)
On Sunday I was working, and a girl from another department came out with a lot of car seats, which had been on display, and sometimes we can buy them cheaper. So I asked if I should buy one of those. Though she said those weren't in too good shape, but if I just waited a minute she had one tugged away, which was meant for her cousin to buy cheap a few months ago. But he had never picked it up, so I could buy that one. So now I got a car seat for only 25% of the price I can find for online... how cool is that?
Well this is not the first car seat I need, the baby wont fit into this before its about a year old, but I don't mind storing it at that price. Ohh and don't mind the frosties in the background, it's not an attempt of product placement:)

Now I'm on the outlook for another car seat, which can be used from birth, but a co worker of mine talked about selling hers. Neither me nor my baby will be too good for hand me downs. Besides she said she had hardly used it, so I will have a look, and probably buy it. At the same time she said she had a lot of maternity clothes, she had just been cleaning out her closet, and I could take a look if I could use any of it. So yesterday she brought me this big box of maternity clothes...

So it's just sitting there waiting for me to go through it. Isn't that just great, a whole box of free clothes? Especially since I'm only going to wear it for 4 or 5 months, I would really hate myself for having to spent a load of money on clothes I'm not going to be able to wear anymore in the spring.

Just when we had found out I was pregnant a friend of ours wrote on her facebook status that she was selling their Trip Trap High chair. I was a bit confused as what to do, because a new one will cost a smaller fortune, but at the same time we weren't ready to tell them I was pregnant.

Well after our vacation we invited them for my belated birthday dinner. After a few minutes I asked if they had sold their high chair, to which she replied no, and I asked if they wanted to sell it, and she got the point right away and congratulated us. Then she said if she had only known, because then she wouldn't have bought me a birthday present, I would have got the chair instead. But then she realised that my husband has a birthday before me giving birth and said it would be his birthday present.


So we also got a high chair, well not yet but we will have it before the baby is here, and its free. The cool thing about this chair is that it can be used for bigger children as well, as the baby gets bigger you can remove the bar and adjust the seat level. Our friends son had used it until he turned 6 years, so it won't be completely new, and our will be a wooden colour, so even if it has a few "bruises" it won't be that noticeable as a painted one would be.

So I'm looking for bargains all the time, and the good thing is that I don't need everything right now, so I have plenty of time to look around, but that also means that I will find a lot of stuff that I might not really need, but that I do want:)


  1. Wow - I can't believe they don't have baby showers in Denmark. That's crazy - now you have to buy all that stuff yourself. Pretty much the whole point of a baby shower is to have people buy you strollers, high chairs, car seats, clothes, toys, etc. so that you don't have to buy them. My sister got SOOOO much stuff from her shower - to bad we don't live closer because I think we have 4 car seats and 6 or 7 strollers! Except she used most of them (car seats in each of their cars, one for my car, and one for grandma's car along with strollers in every car). Babies are EXPENSIVE!

  2. The shopping part is something I'm SO looking forward to about having a baby. My husband and I are going to have one spoiled kid. :)

    Hooray for free high chairs! Especially those that can be used as the child gets older.

  3. Oh man, I'm with Salt - when the hubs and I have a kid we're going to go crazy shopping for him/her!

  4. woah! that's an awesome high chair. very modern. your kid is going to be sitting in style! :)

  5. That's so nice of your friend to donate a bunch of maternity clothes to you! I will be all about the hand me downs when we have kids!

  6. That is one chic high chair!!! It's so sleek!

    Umm, babies overwhelm me! Everytime I go to a baby shower, I am blown away by how much they need!


Your comments makes me smile:)
