Anyway, I'm refuse to pay 12.00 for a sleeper!! Where do I find affordable clothes...sleepers, and such...
I've also been buying hats since babe will be a winter babe I want "her" head to stay warm....
My 2 girls are dressed in mostly name brand all cotton clothes none of which cost me more then $2 apiece.
I do end up buy white t-shirts and turtle neck brand new cause they are hard to find used.
Our girls have more clothes then they or me know what to do with
Yesterday, I got ds a brand-name sweater (supercute with an embroidered moose on it) for $.50. Can't beat it!
Yardsale season is almost over.....
The thing is I never had to worry about it with ds. I had a baby shower and a great lady here sent me clothes for free and tracy is still wearing all of that stuff. I think I've bought him maybe 4 outfits since he was born...which has been really nice (not to mention he is wearing last falls clothes again cause he hasn't gotten any bigger.....
I'll check out some of the other thrift shops...our area is full of them...
Our little guy is almost exclusively clothed in second hand stuff -- most of which is terrifc quality that we couldn't afford if bought new.
Evergreen- Loving my girls Dylan age8, Ava age 4 and baby Georgia (6/3/11).
Another string attached: I don't keep any of it. As ds outgrows it, I pack it up and return it to family members. Of course, if it's ruined, no biggie. No one lends kids' clothes out intending to get them back exactly the same.
I hit the sale racks this last week (labor day sale leftovers) and no sleepers to be found....just tank tops and things and I'm trying to buy semi gender neutral. But I figure if I buy some of each I can give the girls clothes away. We have lots of boy clothes since we already have a boy I just need the girl ones but feel silly buying them since we don't know gender!
Thanks for the shopping tips!!!
Just relax & enjoy your alone time with ds now - don't waste it shopping!
I'd beware of buying too much gender specific clothes - esp. if you're on a budget.
and I second all the tips about resale shops and thrift stores conncted to hospitals.
Anyway, clearance racks are my friend. target usually has cotton sleepers on the rack all year round and I have found thier baby stuff to be pretty sturdy.. Also check out Gerber stuff. I think i saw a 3 pack of sleepers for about $15. Thier gown are 2 for $10.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Wal-Mart carries a Carters brand name now called Child Of Mine, like the Target brand from them. You can get packs of sleepers and gowns really cheap, and cute. They have a whole line of matching blankets and such too. They still carry Gerber and the other lines too. I'd look there.
Try to find a friend with a baby about 6-9 months older than yours. It's best if you know that person well and you can trust each other to use the clothes gently.
