Save on baby items

Posted: Updated:

The average cost to raise a baby, from birth to 18, will cost you about $250,000. If that sounds like a lot, cut back on some areas while your children are still really young.

DoughRoller suggests...

  • Opting for dual use products, like just buying a pack n' play instead of a pack n' play and a crib.
  • Buy used. Most baby clothes tend to be gently used. Check local second hand stores and eBay.
  • DIY projects. Like painting the bedroom and making baby food which is healthier, without all the preservatives packed into store bought items.
