Kids are expensive. That's just it, they-are-expensive. With the food, diapers, wipes, toys, medicine, and everything else it can really add up quick. And as you add more kids to your mix it just becomes more expensive-not to deter you from having more kids...
Now, I am in no-way a professional at being a mom, I mean, my job only started two years ago, and I would like to think that I have developed a few money saving habits over the past few years. But, it's all a learning process, you win some and you lose some, and these are the ones that I won.
1. Buy Diapers in Bulk. We buy our Huggies Little Movers in bulk--two month supply--which usually lasts us over two months. You'll save time only having to buy diapers every few months--instead of every month. This is a huge plus for me because that means I don't have to lug Hazel to the store just to buy diapers every time we run out. It gives me more time to be at home with her, playing, and learning, and growing. You'll also save money buying in bulk--over $115 a year which is such an amazing value.
2. Buy a Sam's Club membership. Not only do they have great prices but, you get the friendliness of their employees. The other day when Hazel and I went to visit it just so happened to be sample time--another perk. The employees went out of their way to make sure Hazel could have her very own sample, and Hazel happily sampled away. We love the employees at Sam's Club!

3. Buy Used When You Can. Often times you can find thrift stores that sell gently used clothes, or even clothes with tags on them. If you're not about shopping thrift, then only buy clothes if they are on sale. During the holidays, Labor Day and Memorial Day, there tends to be a ton of clothing sales. Look through the adds to find the best deals, also, don't forget to check out the clearance section.
4. Go to The Library. This is one of Hazel's very favorite things to do. Find a good library in your area and take advantage of all the free things they offer. Our library has a great play area, and awesome events that we go to each week. They offer books and movies to check out, and take home, and you don't have to pay to sign up. It's a great--free--way to entertain your kids.
