I’ve found you can save about 50%-75% off of retail by buying on Craigslist.com
Also be sure to check out local consignment baby stores!!!
One in my neck of the woods even has an outlet store where you can find gently used clothing, toys and baby gear super cheap! Clothes are $1 a piece. I recently found a cute Stanley overall outfit with the tags for $1! Check your phone book. to see if you have any in your neighborhood. 🙂 Happy shopping!
