  • yard sales, second hand stores (like Kid to Kid or Once Upon a Child). try the dollar stores. walmart and target usually have pretty decent prices on their stuff too and alot of times you can find things on sale.

    also, try craigslist for your area. a bunch of people usually sell their babies items and clothes that they no longer need.

  • You can get a lot of stuff for next to nothing on craigslist and get free stuff on freecycle. Being summer there are also a ton of yard sales. Also target and walmart are not bad either.

  • I'm in love with Craigslist lol. I got ds and entire winter wardrobe AND his summer wardrobe (over 100 pieces total that would have cost more than $500 brand new) for $40.

    As pps said, yard sales. It's that time of year. If I can't find what I need at yard sales or on CL, I'll go to Good Will or consignment shops.

  • Friends, neigbors. Just ask if there is anything they would like to give or are not using. I would definitely do garage sales but you wnat to have safety in mind for some items.

  • I get most big baby stuff like cribs and high chairs etc. at yard sales or craigslist or even walmart, it I cant find anything.
    I get most of my kids clothes at thrift stores and yard sales and walmart. We use walmart and or huggies diapers they work good and are cheaper. You can even pick up some stuff at your local dollar store.
