Where can I find the best deals for baby clothes, online or not?

I have a 7 month old that is growing like a weed! She is fitting in 12 month and even 18 month sizes (she is very long!). I need some afordable winter clothes, preferably bodysuits so that she can move around. I like to shop online because I have no transportation and it is just plain easy with two kids. Thanks!

  • I'm sure you have already thought of this but I have had good luck on EBAY buying individual outfits and mixed lots of clothes for my son... Some of the items are really over-priced but if you have the patience you can find some good deals.

  • In my area, Craigslist usually has tons of clothes that are in very good condition (especially for that age). I also buy a lot of my kids' playclothes (affordable) at Target, Kohl's, and Old Navy. Wal-Mart has their Garanimals line as well.

  • Goodwill, Salvation Army and yard sales. Also sign up for Freecycle. Do a search on the internet for Freecycle and on the website they'll have a link for you to find it in your area. People are ALWAYS getting rid of baby clothes!!

  • once upon is a child is the only place that i go for clothes... at least for day to day wear.. if im looking for a special outfit, sometimes i can actually find it there. they take clothes and either give you cash or they give you credit.. so usually i just take his clothes, and then trade them for larger ones.. they have a webiste.. www.ouac.com

  • OLD NAVY! i can't believe nobody has named them! I got Gauge 3 pairs of pants, 5 bodysuits, 2 pairs of shoes, 3 jackets AND pjs for UNDER 50 bucks! Plus, Black Friday is going to be awesome....its even better if you go 2 days after it bc they mark whats left over WAAAY down.
    The Childrens Place is awesome as well....I got 1 sweater, a track jacket, 2 pants, 3 shoes and his winter coat for 54 bucks. I used a coupon on the entire purchase though...But it was a free coupon that I found online...
