Need vs. Want

I’ve always struggled with what I need versus what I want. I don’t think I’m the only one that struggles, am I right?

For instance ... I don’t need a pedicure but I almost always convince myself that I do!

I don’t need to get a new outfit for every concert...but I definitely want one.

So naturally with a bun in the oven it’s hard to distinguish what you will need for your baby and what you want for your baby. It also comes to what’s necessary... there are so many gadgets and swings and gizmo gadgets.

Not only is there challenges with distinguishing need vs. want but also how much you want to spend on the item. Cribs, car seats, gliders, the list goes on and on. You can get wrapped up in wanting the best, but is necessary to get the most expensive item. I mean it is a short period of time that you use these things...

There are important items to splurge on ..probably a carseat. You want it to be super safe, but there are other things you can consider not splurging..For instance, a crib. I always thought we had to have the top of the line but the more I thought about it the more I didn’t think we needed to splurge! Most cribs are made to be safe.

Target always seems to do the job for me... Here are the options so far!

This is one my of my favorites. It is $170 ! 

Or this one! 

This one. This one is $260. It is a little more but I know you can spend $1000’s on them! 

What do ya’ll think? What did you splurge on with your little one?
