  • Try finding a Goodwill around you. There are also consignment store like Once Upon a Child and Kid 2 Kid that are more picky then Goodwill about what they take. Go to their websites to see if there is one close to where you live. And yard sales are awesome, too!

  • try your church (or any church in your area if your not active in one)...ours accepts donations all the time. They have families registered with them to give the donations to.

  • Try Kid to Kid, I work there and its a great store! Its not consignment.. And we're about to have our semiannual sale in July, so everything is going to be on sale, and you can get some super great deals. I would check it out, we're super picky on what we take, so everything is really nice, good quality. I know my store won't take anything with even a slight stain unless its exceptionally adorable.

  • Goodwill, SAVERS, Salvation Army and if you know anyone in the military on base there is normally a thrift store. My uncle was in the Air Force and he bought my crib at the thrift store for 20 bucks. We also got tons of blankets, crib sheets, and MASS amounts of clothing from SAVERS. I dont know if you have one where you are located. But it never hurts to look. I have a few new things for my son but most is second hand stuff that we found for 50 cents in thrift stores.. With SAVERS they have a deal where everyday one color (the tags on clothes are different colors) is 1/2 off! So for all the clothes that are .50 cents.. THERE YOU GO! I walk in with 30 bucks and out with TONS of clothes and necessities for my son!

  • Is there a church near you, that you would feel comfortable attending? Most church groups have women's groups - more than happy to help a young mom clothe, and assist with furnishings for babies. It's a blessing to them, if you ask for the help.

  • Have you contacted any local social services agencies? If you are in Chicago, please contact me and I can point you in the right direction.
