Top 10 Savers Tips When You Have Babies

For first time moms and dads you have the tendency to go over the budget and get a little of everything on the baby’s rack only to find out you won’t use it that much or at all for that matter, or your baby doesn’t feel like using it at some point. Don’t put your money to waste and keep these tips to save money!

10. Don’t do advance shopping on clothes

Your baby grows faster than you think and sometimes it’s hard to follow the sizes on the clothes. Stick to what your baby needs for now and don’t buy clothes that you might need later because the tendencies are you might oversee that he is too big for it already or totally forget that you bought something that he can wear after a few months.

9. Go for Unisex

Having unisex clothes can save you a lot of money especially when you plan to have another baby after a few years. Who knows what the gender of your next baby will be, right? So just be ready by choosing some unisex clothes.

8. Opt for multi-purpose furniture and accessories  

These things are not just thrifty ideas but will save space in your home, too. A baby’s changing table can come with drawers underneath it. Cribs can later on be converted into playpens and toddler beds. Detachable highchairs can be transformed into booster seats or a regular chair. Consider the time span of furniture before buying one.

7. Buy in bulk

Nappies and wipes are used by your baby every day. Buying in buy will save you hundreds of dollars. When it comes to these baby essentials, more is better.

6. Breastfeed

There are more benefits than one in giving your baby breast milk. Aside from keeping your child healthy, you would be saving hundreds of dollars with milk formulas, bottles, and other essentials that are needed for feeding your baby formula milk.

5.  Accept hand-me-downs

Babies outgrow their stuff almost every month. Don’t be shy to tell family and friends that you accept hand-me-downs, you’d even them a favor by clearing the clutter on their closet. You’ll never know how much you can save with hand-me-downs.

4. Buy second hand stuff

Brand new baby clothes and toys can be pricey, but not in second-hand stores. If you worry with its cleanliness then sanitize the second-hand stuff properly. Soak clothes in hot water before washing them; use wipes to clean toys that are not washable then spray some disinfectant afterwards.

3. Make a wish list

This is handy when friends and relatives ask you want you want. They would feel happier if they know that you would want what they would give you.

2. Outlet Stores

If you’re the type of person who prefers brand new and branded items but still on the budget, check out outlet stores in your place. They are much cheaper compared to retail stores in the mall.

1. Think twice

Considering that your budget is really tight, think of the things that are already available and be resourceful. The sink can be used as your baby’s bath tub. Books are available at the local library, so don’t buy them.
