Everyone knows how expensive babies are, once you have one, there is just no going back, it's just spend spend spend! It's especially difficult if you war running your own business and need all the money you can get.
If your having a baby soon, have you been sensible with your money? Theres a great way to to save if you haven't, and that is to use the sales wisely! January sales are a good one, You should be able to save a fair amount of your cash on almost all items, you just have to find the right places. Using online shops might be a good idea to try and save extra money as they seem to be attracting more and more customers these days. I think the best way to do this is to get there quick before items sell
Buying items second hand can be a great way to save money, although one should be very careful when receiving goods from a stranger, if you manage to find yourself a good deal make sure the item isn't counterfeit or in bad condition. When you buy cots/pushchairs or any other device that you will be using with you're baby, the last thing you need is an unsafe product. Safety is of the utmost importance and one must check that at all times.
There are some people in this world that just love giving away some of the past items that they have used. This can be great especially if it means you can get hold of some free hand me downs! These items usually come from people who have had enough kids, they'll usually get rid of the child car seat first but who knows, you could manage to get your hands on some childrens waterproof clothing and who knows what else.
