Must-Read: "Baby Bargains: Secrets to Saving"

Attention:   Moms-to-Be and New Moms


If you want to know the best way to get the best bang for your buck, the way I learned was by reading the most recent edition of the Book Baby Bargains.  The author updates this book each year, and it seriously has the most useful information for all of us "dummies" when it comes to ways to not overspend on your baby products and/or baby registry. 

(This is not a paid review, and the author has no idea who I am....)


Read this book....



1.  Baby Bargains: Secret to Saving (2015 Edition)

I highly recommend the book  Baby Bargains: Secrets to Saving if you're looking to spend wisely during your baby's first year.  This book has some GREAT ideas and strategies for new parents to save on baby essentials, and other gear, and provides savings of 20% to 50% on baby furniture, gear, clothes, toys, maternity wear, etc. We used this book as a guide when we were registering for baby products and it helped us save a great deal of money (probably about $400) and it helped us to strategically register for the right baby items.  The book guides you through which baby items are safe to cut costs on, and which items are worth spending the extra bucks.  The author(s) update the editions to make sure the book's suggestions are in line with the current market conditions.  Baby Bargains: Secrets to Saving is an excellent reference manual for when you are registering for baby, and even afterwards.

I give this book a 5 out of 5.  


Funny Books that Will Make (Almost) Any Pregnant Woman Laugh

I felt like a dinosaur during my third trimester (a dinosaur with a lot of gas...see more about how I felt like a dinosaur during pregnancy at My 3rd Trimester of Pregnancy - Thunk! Thunk! Here I Come!), and I just wanted someone who could empathize with me about how fat my feet were and how much they hurt. Two books that kept my sense of humor [somewhat] alive at the end of my pregnancy were written by two different woman, Jenny McCarthy and Vicki Iovine, who offer two refreshing perspectives on the realities of pregnancy, and they are not "too polite to complain or too embarrassed to talk about the discomforts and humiliations of pregnancy."


2 Funny Books That Will Make 
(Almost) Any Pregnant Woman Laugh

Belly Laughs, by Jenny McCarthy
Link:  Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth


Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth reveals all the joys and sweet discoveries of being pregnant, from puking bouts and hormonal rage to hemorrhoids, pregnant sex, and big ol' granny underpants. McCarthy draws from her own difficult pregnancy to discuss every stage of expectant motherhood in vivid, sometimes excruciating -- and excruciatingly funny -- detail. Belly Laughs is a must-read for any woman who is pregnant, has ever been pregnant, or hopes to become pregnant.



The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy, by Vicki Iovine
Link:  The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy

The author of The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy talks to you the way only a best friend can - from what to expect at doctor visits all the way to husbands and their lack of usefulness (at least at time).
