Are you hitting up the second hand shops and shopping super thirfty for baby or are you going to buy all new? Or a combination? If I have a boy the majority of his stuff will be handy downs from his bro. If I have a girl I am going to hiting up goodwill, consignment shops, ebay, and asking friends for gently used items. what about you guys what are your plans? With my son we bought a lot of new and I really feel like we wasted a lot more money then we should have.

If I have a girl my brother is going to give me his daughters clothes. If I have another boy I still have all his clothes so baby will have plenty of clothes either way. Now as far as cribs, or stroller. I will be looking into a used double stroller cause those get pretty expensive. But a crib I think my step sil has a crib she is going to give us. So we are pretty much set.

I do a bit of everything. Hand me downs, thrift stores and consignment shots, and new clothes.

We had mostly hand me downs with our first. I gave them back to the friend though when she had another girl. Almost everything I did buy was clearance for only a dollar or two or from value village (a thrift store). With this baby I was given everything that my friend had for her first baby, she had not gotten rid of anything. And another friend loaned me stuff. We only bought the going home outfit and some onesies.
