Bringing a baby home from the hospital is exciting, but being without the essentials can certainly add stress to the life of new parents. Forego those challenges and worries by making a list of the items that you’ll need and purchasing these items before baby arrives. There are many items to add to that list, like a stroller, diapers and wipes, clothing, and a crib. But, do not forget to add a changing table dresser to the list of necessities. Any new parent will tell you firsthand how valuable this item is and that it is a piece of furniture that every nursery needs.
But, when there are so many other items that baby needs, the cost of every item that you buy is important. Will the cost of a changing table put your budget over the edge? Exactly how much money should you expect to spend when purchasing this item? There are actually a few factors that impact the amount of money you’ll spend for the table. Expect to spend a minimum of $100 for the item, but some cost well into the hundreds of dollars. The brand, style, model, features, etc. all vastly impact costs.
Comparing the different changing tables is a lot of fun and it gives the chance to compare prices. It is easy to compare the choices through websites, online brochures, and catalogs. When you sort through the changing table options it is easy to find something that meets your needs, including budget. Do remember to set the budget for the purchase before you start shopping. So many awesome tables are out there, it is easy to spend more than intended if you don’t have that budget set.
Of course, the changing table can also be added to the baby registry if you would like. Perhaps a friend or a family member will see this item and purchase it for you to give to you at the baby shower. It would save money and is certainly worth a try. If no one purchases the item, you can always go back to get it before baby arrives.
