  • You can check craigslist. Some states have a paper called the IWANNA and other states have something called the pennysaver. You can try looking at that.

  • consider what you think you "need" I don't use a crib, I use a playpen, fancy baby bath - nah my lap works fine, I'm expecting #3 and all I need are a few clothes and some cloth diapers, not that expensive considering your can find things at yard sales and stuff.

  • they have some realy nice second hand baby items in my area, and i plan on hitting those up this time. craigslist has some amazing things too, especially when people just need to gt rid of stuff so they practically give it away.

  • Goodwill can actually have some GREAT deals! The draw back is you have to go and look several times a week until you find what you are looking for. I got a beautiful hand stitched infant quilt for 6 dollars. A friend got her Eddie Bower bassinet for 25 dollars. It looked new! I also agree craigslist and freecycle are great tools Ebay is also good for things like bulks of clothing bed sets. I got my medela double breast pump for 80 on ebay.

  • Contact a state social worker. They can help you get things either super cheap or free.
