Baby on a Budget: Quick Shopping Tips

Posted by Lily Kay at 12:32 PM


Babies are adorable. The price of having a baby? Not so adorable. Worth it? Most definitly! Of course, if their are ways to save while shopping for little one....why not? Here are a few tips that have helped me save while shopping for necessary baby items.
  • Sign up for rewards programs at baby stores. They do help. Babies R Us sends me $5.00 every month. Combine that with a formula coupon and you can get your babys milk fix on the cheap.
  • Speaking of formula, head on over to Enfamil or Similac to sign up for coupons and samples. Trust me their samples are very generous and they love bombarding you with coupons. Other brands such as Gerber offer coupons as well.
  • Same goes for your Huggies and Pampers! Head over to their websites to check out their savings programs.
  • Consider dicounted baby shopping sites such as Zulily or Totsy where you can find clothing, feeding supplies and baby furniture on major discount.
  • If you see an outfit you like at a baby store...give it a week or two...it will most likely go on sale and you will have saved yourself paying full price.
  • Old fashioned couponing, yes you can scour Sundays ads if that is your thing.
  • Fan of Carters baby clothing? Only buy these from an actual Carters store as their clothing is almost never full priced. They also have a awesome rewards program that will save you money on top of the already discounted prices.
  • Check out Naturally Thrifty Mom she always has baby giveaways, discount codes and tips on where the current sales are.
  • Check out Amazon Mom.
  • Sign up for BabyCheapskate newsletter. Its literally savings delivered to your inbox every morning.
How do you save when it comes to baby shopping/couponing? Share your tips and advice!

Happy Friday!

These tips were very helpful. Similac has sent me loads of coupons in the mail because I signed up. I wanted to buy my son's Halloween costume and as much as I wanted to I resisted the urge. I was able to get an adorable dragon costume for my 4 month old for 19 dollars originally 39 dollars. I also shop at places like Tj Maxx and Marshalls because they always have the cutest clothes for babies at discounted rates = )
