There are a lot of things you can purchase if you are a new parent. A vast majority of those things are basically useless and will take up space in your home until you have that garage sale when your child is older. We have found on Yahoo a great bit of information that every new Mom and Dad need to know, the items and gadgets that are a MUST have and the ones you can live without. 

In my experience as a Dad a good stroller is certainly top of the list and if it combines with a car seat that is easy to get in and out of the car, buy it now! The right kind of crib will save you a bundle too, not to mention the peace of mind you'll have when the baby is finally sleeping all the way through the night.

You are also going to want something to hold the diapers, yes those diapers, trust me they will pile up faster than attorneys after an oil spill if you don't have a good way to manage them.
