Why pay full price when you can wait a while and get it on sale. I always look for sales first. Have you tried Ebay for baby clothes? I have gotten gorgeous things that are new, with tags for a fraction of the cost. All the dresses our wears to church that she gets compliments on are usually from Ebay. I have put dresses on her that had price tags of $48 or more and I paid a very small fraction for it brand new on Ebay. I love it. I usually look for a certain brand or I also like looking for smocked dresses and will put that in my search. I'm also buying some swimsuits from there as why should I pay such a high price when they will barely wear it for long? what size will your little girl be wearing?

The fun of discount shopping is the search for that ultimate bargain that has been mardown from an unreasonably large price to an incrediably reduced price. I remember the days when I had no money in my bank account and no credit left on my credit card and couldn't afford groceries.

I have to agree with a lot of this post. I too grew up in a financially unstable household and *thankfully* married someone who has a much higher income bracket than I ever imagined having at this age. He's so impressed by my Budget Skills and there is NOTHING I love more than getting something REALLY REALLY Cheaply. I agree with the Ebay comment. I've never used ebay, nor sadly have the need for baby clothes, but I can't help but drool over the insane bargains you can get!!!

I found you through Rachel and am so excited for you and your husband and your impending adoption. My husband and I are in a very similar situation fertility-wise and are starting to look into adoption. So many questions for you! But I don't see an email address... And by the way, I totally understand about the mixed luxury and budget items. I'll carry my Coach bag that matches my Target t-shirt and Old Navy flip flops. And once I master the sewing machine I'll be making skirts to match!
