Make a list of what you have., and a very short list of what you think you stil NEED (10 items or less). I understand the need to want to have everything ready for a new baby (I'm siting here 6 days overdue). I just keep repeating 'no baby ever died yet from not having new blankets and cute clothes.' I've got a few outfits ready for whether it's a girl or a boy, a stack of white onesies, one pack of GN flannel blankets, a few bins of dipers, and the co-sleeper ready. Carseat and bouncy seat are the only 'furnture' items around the house. Rationally I know stuff lke Bumbos, swings, high chairs, playmats, even rattles, they won't need until they're a few months old and it won't be an immediate need, so don't worry about stocking up, finding deals, or having it ready.

it possible to stay out of the stores that sell baby stuff?
