So, I'm proud to say that nothing in
I had to put all the clothes in perspective when I kept coming home to Neil with more baby clothes. First off, babies grow fast and not all the clothes I brought home were for one size. I looked up the cost of a pram and a similar one was $33 new, so I saved about $28.50! I got most (5 of out 7) of the short sleeve onesies at a recent thrift store purchase after going to the chiropractor for .59 cents a piece!! The other two were .99 cents.
I'm kicking myself now for throwing away all my tags from the consignment sale, because it gave a description of what the item was as well as the cost. I do remember I got 4 of the long sleeve onesies at the consignment sale wrapped in a ziploc bag and they went for $2.00 (.50 cents a piece!).
The pants were between .99 cents and $2.50 a piece. The new ones came in sets of two and they were $4.99. The tags from Carters, said they were originally between $17 and $20 for each set. So I saved a bunch there too. I did got out the day after Thanksgiving to get me some more yoga pants, which I forgot, but I stopped by JCPenney to see if they were having any deals on baby things. I found the exact sets of pants that I got at Ross and TJMaxx and to their credit, they were half off, but they were still $10.99 for the set. So, even on the biggest sale day of the year, it was still cheaper at Ross and TJMaxx.
I was pretty hung up about getting some zippered sleepers to make it easier to change her diaper in the middle of the night. I've heard that the snaps are a nightmare in low light. About half are new and half are thrifted. The new ones ranged from $2.50-$6.99 a piece. That pink fleece sleeper was a splurge at $6.99, but originally it was $20.00. The others were originally $17 full price.
The last really big find were 2 pairs of patterned pants from Gymboree. I got 2 pairs for $4 at a consignment sale. I had Neil look up how much those kind of pants were originally and they were $32.95 a piece!! I paid $4 for something that cost almost $66 new!! Babies aren't in 3 month sizes for two long, nor are they moving around or wearing down the fabric at the knees. Practically brand new pants!
