      Freecycle, freecycle, freecyle. Get as much as you can through

      freecycle: clothes, equipment, baby furniture, even diapers.

      Borrow, borrow, borrow. Put the word out to your friends and local

      churches. Send them a list of what you are interested in borrowing.

      Sometimes the clothes we get free have a few stains on them. I

      combine dishwashing detergent and Clorox 2 to get them out. It works

      really, really well. if you want to know more go to:

      cvs, cvs, cvs (and/or walgreens, and/or rite aid). it is amazing to

      me how cheap you can get things at these drugstores if you regularly

      take advantage of their special customer loyalty programs. i

      recently brought home 30 packs of diapers for a net cost of -$63.90.

      Yes, you read that right. Walgreens paid me money to take 30 packs

      of diapers home! Now these kinds of deals don’t happen often.

      Usually, I can get diapers for $3.xx a pack. but these diaper/wipes

      deals only come around every few months. for help with this check

      How to Save Big Money on Free Groceries at Walgreens



      Baby food is outrageously expensive. If you can manage to make your

      own that is by far the cheapest. But even if you can’t you can save

      a lot of money by being creative. The grocery store carries plenty

      of items in the non-baby aisles that can easily work as baby food

      such as canned sweet potatoes or jarred applesauce. More ideas here:

      Formula is the hardest thing to save money on. If you can manage it,

      breastfeed as long as possible. Mother’s milk is the

      cheapest “formula” by far! Sometimes people have leftover formula.

      You could request it on freecycle. If you’re using the drugstore

      loyalty programs to the max you can get pretty good discounts on

      formula there. More ideas here:

      we already have a minivan. We do need to get new carseats (not

      something to get used). We went out briefly looking at a few the

      other day.
