Hi Emily! I read your story, and I was thinking about asking you what you thought about opening a GoFundMe account. I know this wasn’t what you were thinking, but I was. When Mike Essig’s car died and he needed wheels to get to his poetry readings, he posted his request here on Medium and received at least $500 more than he wished for. Just a thought.
Anyway, I thought your piece would be quite helpful for any new parents looking to save money on necessary baby items. You are very resourceful.
And one last thought. I’ve always heard people say “If you’re waiting to have a baby when you think you can afford one, you’ll never have a baby.”
