I've been trying to find a bedding set that I like from Wal-Mart. I chose Wal-Mart for my registry because I feel like I can get more of the bigger items for less. I think Target is too expensive with bedding and things that baby won't use for more than 2 or 3 years. Anyway, so I went to our Wal-Mart and I hate all of the bedding sets they have on the shelves. I like more vivid colors and I don't care for pastels as much. I found a couple of sets on the Internet that I love. Do you all think it would be tacky to register for something that people won't be able to get in a store? Or I could just not register for bedding and buy it myself. Either way, I can't get it in a store. It will have to be ordered online. Here are the two sets I like. I'll make a decision on which one soon since I still have a lot of time.
Also, I was wondering what you all would do in this situation. There is a very limited number of travel sets (stroller and infant car seat combo) at our Wal-Mart. I believe there were four at the biggest Wal-Mart. One of them was Pooh and I don't like Pooh at all. There was another that was brown and I didn't like it either. That left two to choose from. One was pink and grey. Very cute and I liked it. It was under $200.00 which meant hopefully I could get it at a baby shower if people went in on it. The other was a teal set that was cute, but over $200.00. It was the most expensive one there. I don't want to be picky about what I get and I don't want to register for the most expensive items because then I'll be less likely to get what I need and I would feel bad about it. So, here's the problem: If I have a boy sometime, I won't want to put a boy in a pink car seat and stroller. Russ said that we would just buy a different one, but that seems impractical to me. But, if we don't do that we will have to register for the more expensive neutral one. What I really want to do is get the pink and grey, but it just seems silly if we end up having a boy later. What would you do?
I'm probably thinking about it too hard. I just want to be cost-effecient and not be greedy when it comes to this. Decisions, decisions...
