Ok, this was my first day. Read magazine article last night about "preparing feet for sandals" and suddenly felt like I needed to add foot cream to the shopping list. BUT I DIDN'T. I rubbed vaseline on my feet from a tub I've had for years, and then slept in cotton socks, and my feet look great today and I spent no money!
Then started gathering things for a party we're having this weekend. Decided we didn't have enough regular plates so I needed to go buy paper plates. BUT I DIDN'T. Amassed huge stack of mis-matched plates by including the plastic plates we use to eat outside, and no one but me will even notice. And I spent no money!

I'm finding this too, Kristine.
My theory is that babies don't put too much wear-and-tear on their clothes, but by the time they are wearing clothes for a year (instead of 6 months between size changes) they are just HARDER on clothes...so your friends don't have as much worth handing down.
