After you've ruined your 1oth "fancy for baby" outfit, you're going to realize "new" isn't all it's cracked up to be. It usually has blueberry stains or spit-up on it after the first wear. That's where used-stuff sales come into play. Keep your eyes out for notices about kids used-clothing and equipment sales. Churches, Moms of Multiples groups, active mother's associations, schools, etc., all tend to have frequent sales. They're a good and easy way to refresh your supply of play clothes or even find a "dress-up" outfit for small change. Baby Revolution holds frequent sales - hit up their October 31st sale for things like snow boots, mittens, holiday attire - things your child will wear infrequently or grown out of fast. Most often have toys, strollers, and other equipment - an extra set of things to keep at grandma's house.
