Baby and toddler events mean low prices

Today I went shopping and at the shop I went to it was one third off the price of all baby equipment including nappies and food. I was so delighted to shop and the bill to be much lower than it normally is. I came home and saw a leaflet advertising another baby and toddler event that will start next week. It has deals like baby's car seats, highchairs, travel cots and baby baths. I will do some shopping in that shop next week to take advantage of the much lower than normal prices. Have you ever been to a baby and toddler event? If so did it mean low prices? If a baby and toddler event happened in your locality how much would you stock up with stuff?

yup i definitely agree. I love shopping at baby sale events. Usually the daily necessities like wet wipes and boob pads are on good offers. For big ticket items like play musical tables and strollers are also good buys. I would stock up what i need for at least half a year. Since these baby fairs do not happen all the time. usualy the discounts range around 20% off. however, one must also be discerning. for me, I know the prices of most things I buy and can compare if there really is a discount. for some items, they are price controlled, hence even at baby fairs, although they are displayed, they are not actually being marked down at a discount. So those who are not aware will still buy it, but those who are familiar with the prices know that it's not great anyway.

Hi Maximax8, We do see such events happening in India now a days. Yet , not so common. I would also like to go to such an event some day and hope to pick some goodies.

1/3 off everything baby and toddler is quite a sale. My youngest is going to be 3 in a little over a week, so I really don't have a need for those things anymore, but if I did and I had the money I sure would stock up.
