It's a great idea, I did the same, that way you're not hit with massive costs all at once and can keep your eyes out for bargains!
Mind you, I ended up wasting a lot of money on things I never used lol so read up on what you REALLY need!
Another thing I would recommend is to go 2nd hand on a lot of items as things really don't get used for that long and stay in as new condition- I got 3 garbage bags worth at least 200 bucks of toys for 25 bucks on eBay I was super pleased and bubs did not care! Furniture, rockers, swings and pram are definitely better going 2nd hand

At the same time - we haven't made the 'bigger' purchases yet. My DH has actually asked if we can hold off on buying things for a while.
He's a bit upset that its taken us longer to fall pregnant that we thought it would, but he also is concerned that if we're doing all the fun stuff like researching baby stuff and buying things now, we'll lose some of the excitement when the time eventually does come and it won't be as an exciting an experience we can have.
I still think it would be exciting enough to just BE pregnant, and am would love to be able to just pick up little things now an then when I see a great bargain or something adorable and handmade - love the markets here! But I can more than understand where he is coming from, so we've stopped.

Years ago when i was about 17 I had a friend who just loved babies and every time she went shopping and she saw something cute, she'd buy it. I heard she got married when she was 23 and had her 1st baby at 24...her stash would have been huge!
