To buy or not to buy…?

That is the question! This time of year there are so many sales, my favourites have to be Next and Emma Bridgewater, and I can’t help but spend! But is it always right to buy…?

Early pregnancy is so exciting. There is a little one growing in there and all you want to do is look at baby things (and freak out about how it’s going to come out!!), but then the little voice inside brings you back to reality. There are so many things that can happen in pregnancy, when is the right time to start buying things? I can’t resist a sale, but a baby related sale is even cuter!



We had decided to wait until after our 20 week scan but I can’t help but look! I have seen so many nice things for baby to wear, play with and sleep/ride around in! But today scrolling through baby related things online, I decided that buying things isn’t going to change anything! Waiting 2 weeks to buy things isn’t going to change the outcome of our 20 weeks scan! So, I ended up buying a few things that we’ll need – hats and baby grows – and if I can resist I’ll wait until after 4th Jan… 😁

In non baby related sale news, the Emma Bridgewater sale starts tomorrow. My bank account may take a serious hit! Sooooo much that I want, but how much can I get away with without the hubby noticing? 😂


For others who are expecting or are already mummies, how much did others buy there little bump? And when did you start?

For those who are spendaholics like me – what are you favourite sales to splash the cash on?

As always comment below and let me know.

    This is so funny – I saw that exact same set of sleepsuits on Next yesterday and thought they were super cute! I did end up buying a little something from Next as a Christmas present from Pickle to my husband – a little babygrow that says ‘I really really really really love Daddy’. Little bit cheesy but I thought it would make a sweet little present.

    I say, when there’s a sale on… you’d be a fool not to buy at least something! It make sense, right?!!?

      I got a Next one that said ‘I love my Daddy’ as well 👍🏻 I can’t help myself when it comes to sales 😁 I think because it’s taken us so long I constantly worry it’s not real but buying things really isn’t going to change how the pregnancy goes so why not enjoy it a little!! 😊
