A few days prior to our miscarriage in December 2013, we were in the land of tax-free shopping for Thanksgiving and Black Friday (Oregon). We felt we should make good use of all the amazing deals and lack of sales taxes to get some of our big ticket baby items.
Now that Baby S is staking his or her claim, I thought it would be wise to take stock of our existing baby gear. I wanted an inventory so when this November rolls around, I can easily start researching factory recalls and work with the manufacturers prior to Baby S arriving to get the issue resolved.
Sometimes I feel like recalls on baby items are inevitable (especially cribs) so why not just prep for it? My uncles got donated older items, called the company to get the recalls, and fixed!
We just moved to a new state less than a year ago, so we don’t really have a that friend/family base nearby. Where do you go to find baby gear deals? I’m going to try out the Just Between Friends sale at the end of this month.
Not sure we need a lot more big ticket items… but, here is our inventory thus far:
