Baby clothes can become a major drain on your budget if you don't learn how to shop smart.

Key Points:

  • Shops sales. Buy summer clothes after summer and winter clothes after winter, for example.
  • Consignment shops or sales. Secondhand clothing is fine if it’s in good condition and will save you big money.
  • Heirloom pieces. If you have some yourself, use them with your kids. One or two pieces you buy for your children can be a nice gift for when they become parents.
