Getting ready for a new baby and not sure where or how to save up for it? Worried about the expense? “The Baby Cheapskate Guide to Bargains” by Angela Wynne of the blog BabyCheapskate.com is a great book! I learned things about couponing that I did not know, so even though I’m not the audience for this book it still had its value.
My opinion? This book is a “must have” for all first time moms. Wynne shows you the in’s and out’s of everything you will need to get ready for baby, and how to save money doing it. She gives you lots of options to save money, so not all of them will apply, but many will. The basics of how to save money are reviewed first, then a primer on couponing – even if you don’t plan on becoming an extreme couponer, these tips will help! She covers where and how to get freebies, how to save on diapers, what items are necessary – and what you can do without. Wynne gives you multiple options for finding cheap or free places to score everything from diapers to furniture.
Wynne wrote this book based on her own research on how to save money when she was pregnant. The average American family spends $23,000 in the first 2 years of a baby’s life, but she was determined not to go into debt. Wynne shares methods she’s used and mastered over the years. She even reviews top toys and other desirable, unnecessary items, like bouncers and jumpers, and provides a host of resources for you get coupons, bargains, and find deals.
