If you are about to become a parent soon, I understand how excited you must be. I imagine that you have been saving up some money to be able to offer you precious child the best start in life possible. Now, all you need to do is to wait for him or her to be born.
One of the biggest expenses every parent has to face is buying a good pushchair. I understand why some parents might want to go for a brand new pone, but below I am going to offer you a few simple reasons why used pushchairs are such a good choice, or possible even a better one.
1. The price. Obviously, the moment you decide to browse second hand pushchairs instead of brand new ones you can afford better and more reputable brands at the fraction of the original price. You no longer have to say “I cannot afford a Bugaboo” as you can simply go for a used one.
2. Because of the nature of the pushchairs they tend to be those items that we don’t use for a long time. Before you even know it your child is going to outgrow it and you will need a new better system or possibly you can switch to a trike or nothing at all depending on your preferences. Spending too much money on something you might not use much seems like such a waste to me. Only because other mums do it doesn’t mean that you have to follow in their footsteps. They might be bragging about their new travel systems, but you would be surprised to discover how many parents actually opt out from spending too much money on pushchairs.
3. Finally, if you decide to spend a little less on prams and pushchairs you are going to have more money you will be able to spend on other necessary things your child might need. Maybe it is a better idea to go out more often even if it costs you a bit more? After all, not that many things matter in life like quality time you can spend with your precious offspring.
