How does a budget savvy person shop for baby gifts? By shopping even when you don’t need a baby gift. Walgreens diapers for $2.99? I’ll take 4 packs thank-you-very-much. Onesies for a dollar on the clearance rack at Target and Walmart? I’ll take one in every size!
I am all about keeping things on hand for gifts. And baby showers are no exception! A couple cute outfits, some diapers and wipes, or bath stuff make a great gift and there’s nothing wrong with getting it at a bargain!
My sis-in-law is having a baby in July and I’ve been buying like a crazy person since we found out! Even though this is her fifth baby, we are all so stinkin’ excited that she’s having a BOY this time, that we are throwing a baby shower today! Here’s everything I’m taking to the shower and I’m going to tell you how much I paid for it all! (Want to go ahead and take a guess now?)
