So, what are you going to do with all your baby stuff?” It’s a common question when your young one ages out of their first round of baby clothes because as any mother knows, buying baby things can be very expensive. It makes sense that someone would look to their friends or family for help acquiring the stuff they need. However, it is important to realize that many of these items have major sentimental value, plus many new mothers are still unsure whether they will want more children later down the road.
Today, Affordable Family Storage will discuss why it can be a good idea to hold on to some of your baby clothes and various items as well as which items are pretty safe to go ahead and donate or sell. We’ll also discuss why a storage unit can provide you with the necessary space to keep items that are important to you.
Do you have adequate room to store this item? Depending on your living situation, your ability to store your items is a major factor in what you should keep. A storage unit can increase your available storage space in combination with home features such as attics and extra closets.
How difficult is finding a replacement going to be? If you do plan to have more children, it is a good idea to keep in mind how difficult it was to get your original item. Many new mothers spend hours and hours researching items online to ensure that the specifications meet their exact needs. You will likely also want to keep your maternity clothes because they are specific to your size and style. Other items, like a baby swing, are very easy to replace and yet take up a large amount of space, so it’s a pretty easy decision to go ahead and part ways with one.
How expensive was your item? Certain things like cheap baby toys are pretty easy to part ways with because they are relatively inexpensive to get rid of. However, the crib you purchased may give you pause. Pregnancy and early child care are expensive enough without having to purchase big ticket items multiple times. Find space in your storage unit and keep those items until you have made a final decision to have no more children.
