Yes kids cost money. More food, more clothes, more diapers, more toys, more of everything. I’m all about finding a good deal so here are 3 more ways I have saved money while shopping for my kids:
- Shop at baby resale stores. Kids grow so quick and after I realized how much money I was spending on clothes, I was so happy I found baby resale stores! I know I have said this before, but I just had another great experience buying clothes at one. I got several shirts and pjs for only $1 each and some pants for only $3 each! Plus the store purchased some of my baby clothes, so I got in store credit; it was a win-win!
- Buy diapers in bulk. I know newborns grow quick into size 1 then size 2 diapers; but once I noticed my child was at the same size for alittle longer, I started buying the biggest box possible. Sure enough it saved me money and lasted longer.
- Cut your kid’s hair yourself. Yes of course the first hair cut is special, but after paying almost $20 for a quick buzz cut I asked my husband if he could just do it at home with his shaver. As you can see in the photo, this might take a practice round!
