Shopping for Baby Bedding Doesn't Have to Put a Damper in Your Hamper


The old adage, you get what you pay for is a motto I live by. I'm all for a good deal - but I never sacrifice quality for cost. Now that does not mean I support splurging on items you can't afford or living beyond your means. It simply means prioritizing your necessities and niceties into categories. We are relentless in our satiating appetites for everything, but the truth is when we spend money on less expensive items, we really end up spending more and it boils down to simple logic. We know we settled when we made a purchase, so before we've walked out the door, we're already unsatisfied and thinking of new ways to fill the void. Think about it - when you saved for an item that you really wanted, the top of the line car, purse, outfit - whatever it is - you were more than content...we were ecstatic! So much so, that you probably spent less on other items and didn't purchase a new version for quite some time. Where with the economical alternative - you more than likely spent the difference in other ways.

When it comes to décor, especially functional décor like bedding and linens, there are some things you can skimp on quality for, like accessory items such as pillows, drapery and even shelving items. But the bedding you sleep on plays into more than just how it looks or feels, quality bedding can provide more relaxing sleep and less stress. Baby bedding in particular, is no different. The fibers that you lay your precious babies head upon should be soft and of the best quality.

With baby bedding, it's important to have durability as part of the equation - no one wants to have to replace bedding every few months because the cheap knock off can't withstand the repeated washings. While some think that baby bedding is more for looks than function, I believe that a balance of look, feel and function is important for satisfaction all around. Quality does not mean you need to go broke either. There are many options for luxurious baby bedding that is more expensive than the discount version, but won't necessarily cost an arm and a leg either. Online shopping has really brought the cost of luxury items down. You can find wonderful brands of baby bedding, baby furniture and even baby clothes online that are top quality, designer brands that boutique retailers offer for much more. The savings and deals should be in finding what you want for less - not settling for a knockoff or cheap alternative. Whether its organic food, baby bedding or the latest fashions you can still shop responsibly and be consumer wise without settling for the alternative. Instead of more for less, think less is more. The less crap you buy, the more money you have to put towards the items that truly matter and will satisfy your interests and needs for many years to come.
