How early is to early to buy a car seat and stroller? I'm only 11 weeks for those on mobile. After doing a lot of research I found a car seat I fell in love with. No big deal right. Well I happened to find it on sale plus I have some other discounts to use at the retailer it's on sale. Basically we could save about $90 plus get free shipping on the car seat and matching stroller.
I'm thinking it's crazy to buy these things this early, aside from all my PGAL fears there is the fact that car seats expire. DH thinks we should go for it because even if they are on-sale again we may not have other discounts to use. I've done a lot of research on the price and even full price both the car seat and stroller were some of the best prices I've found.
I've also thought there is a chance we could get these items as gifts but knowing both our families I'm sure they would just give us the cash or gift cards. We have the money in savings right now and I do like the idea of spacing out the big purchases. If it were the crib or something else on sale I probably wouldn't think twice about buying it this early. It's really just the fact that I don't want something that expires sitting around not being used for this long. I'm also afraid if I wait and don't get such a great deal I'll be kicking myself later!
Sorry this got so long! I would include a PIP with some treats but tinypic isn't working for me right now.
Update: I did it! I ordered the car seat and stroller and they will both be here in about a week! With free shipping and discounts we ended up saving about $120 off of the regular price! I still can't believe we did it but I can't pass up a great deal like that.
