    Dance First New Baby Purchase

    Advertisements
    Okay, not technically our first since I've been buying diapers but its the first big purchase that we, surprisingly, didn't have to buy online - the little person now has a car seat

    The NEX was having their Independence Day sale and I had to run in for a birthday present for one of Wyatt's friends who is also 2 so we went through the baby section. They had Graco MyRides in gender neutral prints already marked down to $125 with an additional 30% off We got this little person their car seat for $85!!!!! We were originally planning on buying online and having my mom fly out here with that (along with our double stroller) since they usually only carry pink or blue and they're just shy of $200 here but my mom will be happy to not have to lug a large box to the airport

    That leaves the stroller as the only other absolutely necessary large purchase. We plan on buying a swing but if we don't, we have Wyatt's old one, I'd just rather get a new one since Wyatt was child number 4 in it and it's seen many better days.

    I know We were going to just use Wyatt's infant carrier and wait to buy this until we were back in the states either on vacation or for good so Mom wouldn't have to bring do much for us but no way could we pass that price up!

    I love when things work out like that!

    Is it hard to get things mailed to Guam? I haven't had any issues with Japan, sometimes I have to use shipitapo.com but thats it.

    It's ridiculous to get stuff here! We don't have an APO/FPO because its a US address and is recognized by the post office as US so it shouldn't be, but people/companies still either won't ship here period or charge international and it makes things double or more to ship here. Like the stroller we want is $195 and can not be bought through the company or amazon. The company went mail here at all and amazon wants to charge $210 in shipping alone We have Kmart here it they don't do site to store shipping, either. It's such a nightmare to buy stuff here.
