  • There are some really great second hand children's stores here locally. Check out your area. Most infant items are only used a short time (If at all) so, most are like new. Good luck.

  • check out Craigslist online people sell all kinds of nice used baby items for good prices there. Also, sign up for coupons from companies like Pampers, Huggies, etc. and stock up on diapers when they are on sale and you have a coupon. Also if you like Target, you can combine their store coupons with manufacturers coupons for even better prices. Or try store brand and see if they work for your baby. You can buy baby clothes in lots on Ebay for good prices. In fact you can find all kinds of stuff on Ebay, although sometimes shipping costs make it not such a good deal.

  • Goodwill is the best. I just yesterday bought my GF who is due in Feb. the most adorable outfits for her new baby girl. I bought a brand new Old Navy pink dress w/bloomers, the cutest mint green onesie with Tweety Bird on the front & a tutu attached to it, newborn nightgown, Ariel sleeper from The Disney store and a few other things for less than $10 and everything was in NEW. You have to have the time to look, enjoy it it's fun finding the deals.
