As expressed in my last blog we are having a baby girl. To have children and both parents working can still hit the money pretty hard but what happens when you only have one income? Well with  a little more time on my hands to do some research when your money is on  a budget you become very creative.

My first child was a boy so now I have a whole bunch of boy clothes while the baby girl can’t wear every piece of clothing she can wear some things so what if for the first 3 months her undershirts are blue (see what I mean by a different perspective if I was working everything would be pink but its about saving)

1) Scan your friends
So who do  you know in your circle has some clothes? Ask you never know! It makes for some free clothes or clothes swap.

2) If the free clothes options fail I go by three websites one is, Craigslist and Ebay. People give away free items on freecycle and Craigslist I recently got two bathtubs one white and one pink in excellent condition barely used and my last is Ebay I got three outfits from Carters for 4.00 plus shipping and recently ten dresses from Gap, Carter, Onsies and Shoes for 40.00 some people may be skeptical about wearing used clothing by my washer come with sanitary mode and that is how I wash them.

3) The last but not least you shop when there is a sale Macy’s just had a sale and I got her a snowsuit, church dress an outfit for $32.00. Also, right now Carters is having a great sale 70% off.

Maternity Clothes 

For us moms we know how expensive maternity clothes can be well I got a whole bag of maternity clothes on sale each piece no more than $29.99 from Motherhood maternity. I also stopped at Target for my maternity coat they had a 20% off sale and Ebay is another place to shop.

Do you have creative ways to save? I would love to hear them.

Happy Spending!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
