The Registries

Yes, that’s right, it’s plural. We registered at both Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby. Here’s why:

Buy Buy Baby: The selection of large equipment is huge–things like strollers, car seats, furniture, etc. The staff at the store work in certain departments and, get this, actually know a lot about their department! The man in the stroller aisle completely changed our thinking about a travel system for the infant seat and stroller. Without his input and demonstrations, we would have gone with, what I call now, the wrong option.

Also, if you purchase items in the store, you can use non-expired Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons. So, all those crazy 20% off coupons that I hoard–now I’m using them before they expire! In addition to all the above wonderful reasons, most of the big tickets items are cheaper at Buy Buy Baby. The stroller, for example, is about $12 cheaper there than at Babies R Us…and you can use the coupon on top of that. (The coupons are not good online [just as you can’t use the mailed coupons online for Bed, Bath and Beyond] and they can’t be used for formula, diapers, wipes, or furniture.)

The one downside is that the nearest store is in Springfield. But, seriously, a 20% off coupon? I’ll drive the 40 mins to the store.

Babies R Us: We registered for all the other small stuff at Babies R Us. There are many stores close to everyone, so I realize they are more convenient than BBBaby or only being able to shop online. BRU only accepts BRU or Toys R Us coupons (or manufacture’s coupons).

We are still in the process of competing the registry, but we have a good start.

The Nursery

We went shopping!  Here is the bedding we decided to put on the registry for Jacob:

Here is the crib and the dresser in Jacob’s room! They came on Thursday to set everything up. I can’t wait to get the bedding to put in the crib!

Love that the dresser is all drawers and doesn’t have a door
It looks naked 🙂
