cheap baby clothes

Mums and dads love cheap baby clothes. There’s no question about that. Personally, I try to find suppliers (mums ahead of me) who pack bags full of designer baby gear, the clothes folded neatly into piles, smelling like cuddly and delivered with a smile as cute as their baby’s first teeth.
Of course, I try to be one of those mums myself. I can usually manage the piles and the smile, but often in a rash moment of declutter-mania, I miss the Cuddly and the designer part of this equation. Some mums are just good at this hand-me-down thang and bless their beautifully washed Bond socks.
These teensy toothless wonders (babies) are too precious with their dummy-sucking cutie-pie antics. I mean, who can resist smiling at a dummy-sucking baby hanging out in the supermarket queue for example? Anyone else in the queue, whether handsome, fashionable or famous can step aside. This baby had everyone in the queue at ‘gurgle-gargle.’
And mums and dads across the country want to harness every minute of this cuteness. Most would rather not spend these first precious months and years stressing about where the next nappy or pureed pea and potato jar of baby food is coming from.
No. A parent’s main goal is to be paid in cuddles and happy giggles. Period.
If you are a parent currently looking to stress less about money, while you get paid in cuddles and giggle, this short (but very money-saving) article is for you!

Show your cutie how it’s done!

Tip 1: Organise a supplier to secure cheap baby clothes

That’s for clothes of course. Make friends with a mum who’s baby wears designer gear and be ‘more than willing’ to accept hand-me-downs. Also find a mum with a little one younger than yours so you can return the favour and pass on those cool clothes and the favour.

Tip 2: Buy cheap baby clothes at baby markets and fairs

Mothers will almost give you the gear for free! Now there’s a way to save on baby! They just want that stuff gone! You can score some amazingly cheap baby gear at these markets. I purchased a perfectly good jogger pram for $40 and walked out of that market grinning from ear-to-ear! I am still using the jogger and every time I use it, I have a giggle at how much I paid for it!

Travel well

Tip 3: Get good at packing snacks to avoid excessive spending

The key to saving money when you are the mum of a newborn is to get good at packing snacks. If you know you are going to go out tomorrow organise ahead of time to save that ‘getting out the door’ stress on the day. Keep a checklist if you have to so you can stay organised. Don’t get caught out trying to feed baby on the run. Whipping into supermarkets to buy convenience food is both stressful and expensive. Try to have everything on hand at all times to avoid any unnecessary expenses.

Tip 4: Use cheat sheets and checklists to get organised

When my little girl was a baby I kept a cheat sheet in her baby bag. This came in really handy if she was screaming in my ear (very hard to think) when we were trying to ‘duck out’ to run errands. Check out the cheat sheets listed below and stick them to the fridge for quick reference. Save sanity and get the most of those precious years with baby.

Tip 5: Get super organised with meal planning

If you are serious and want to save on baby, get super organised with dinners for the family. Try not to cook extra for baby. Simply puree the veggies and meals using what the family are eating. Puree and freeze foods ahead of time and make your own instead of buying in-store. If you have purchased jars of baby food in the past, keep the jars! These are great for putting your own delicious creations in when you make them!

Do you have this problem?  All your best shoes sitting not so pretty under all your worst shoes piled up in a cupboard. Your best jackets shoved in the back of the cupboard, and you’ve forgotten about them and you wear the same jacket most days because it is just easier that way? Well. Say goodbye to your money. Just picture ripping it up over a trash can. A disorganised wardrobe will simply result in you buying more clothes, instead of using all the great gear you’ve already got. So, if my logic prevails, you will save stacks by simply having a well organised wardrobe. No rushing to target at the last-minute for a party dress, because that’s right! You have that uber-cool pink number sitting nicely under your ‘party dress’ or ‘pink’ section!

Don’t go out and buy more clothes. Follow these simple tips and stay focused:

  • Use an old recycled suitcase to pack away summer clothes. This leaves lots of room for the storing of heavier winter items. Be sure to keep a few cool items for those few remaining hot days.
  • Two great ways to organise a wardrobe is either by colour or by the type of clothing article. For example, group your clothes into whites, blacks, browns, denim clothes, brightly coloured and patterned items.
  • Alternatively, group your clothes into pants, shirts, skirts and dressy tops. Grouping clothes into ‘work’ and ‘play’ also works well. Try different ways to group your wardrobe until you find the system that works best for your lifestyle!

If you take these simple steps you will be less likely to go out this weekend and spend up big on stilettos you kinda already own! Save money on clothes, be creative with what you’ve got and put more money in your pocket.

Cheap clothes make styling oneself even more fun! Creativity is king! I like winter but winter is harsh in the way it can sap one’s wardrobe budget dry. A simple trip to the mall is so very tempting can’t it?  With all the latest, deliciously warm winter coats staring back at you like a cuddly little puppy. Oh they look so pat-able! You could just marry one. Take it home and go to bed with it.
But you’d be taking a big risk in terms of your finances, like any good marriage.

Keep it simple

No. I say, the best way to save money on clothes this winter is to stick to the essentials. This action is a little like dating Mr Nice Guy. You know, the type of guy who complains he never gets the girl, but who most girls choose to marry eventually. This is theory (related to sticking to the essentials) as opposed to going for the whizz-bang, fancy guy with the fast car who might cheat on you.
Ok. I digress. But you get the picture.
So, stick to the following essentials and save money on clothes, shoes and accessories by staying focused and using what is already in your wardrobe.
Sometimes, all the best that life has on offer in terms of men, money and clothes are staring you right back at you (literally) with no effort, trips to the mall or further action required.

8 winter wardrobe essentials

These are my tips for great winter essentials that will keep you warm, cosy and with enough leftover money to take in some nice winter experiences like a movie, dinner out with that Mr Nice guy you’ve ignored, or a trip to the hot springs with the girls:

  1. Two long sleeve T-shirts in black and white for wearing under garments.
  2. One very warm coat to suit your style – preferably a nice long one that keeps the tops of your legs warm!
  3. One very comfortable track suit for lounging around the house.
  4. A favourite scarf in a neutral colour so it will go with everything.
  5. A pair of stylish jeans and boots.
  6. Leggings, tights and a nice supply of warm socks.
  7. Finally pyjamas, the warmest dressing gown you can lay your hands on and your favourite pair of slippers or Ugg boots!
  8. Your trusty umbrella!

There! All ready before you can say…’Gee, it sure is cold tonight honey.’
