It’s an extremely exciting time when families prepare for a new baby. There is so much to get and, it seems at times, so little time to get everything. But, during this economy crisis, those moments of excitement are easily offset by the new financial landscape that many find themselves in. If you are not careful, the need to stretch a budget could take some of the fun out of all of the new baby hubbub. Do your best not to let it steal your joy!

Finding ways for saving, cost-cutting and making the most of every dollar can be just as fun as buying things outright. In fact, it can be more fun and even more satisfying knowing that you are not robbing your piggy bank in the process. With a new baby, there is always something to buy, and it is best not to spend all of your money upfront because there will inevitably be something that your baby will need later on.

Here are a few tried and true ways to get what you need for the prices that you want, as you prepare for your new bundle of joy, keep things in perspective, be mindful of your spending, but always enjoy the experience. Remember, expecting a baby is a wonderful and magical time that should not be taken for granted. Get started saving, cost-cutting and doing your best to buy for cheap using the following tips:

If you are physically able, then, nurse your baby instead of buying massive amounts of infant formula. At $13 per can, infant formula can be extremely expensive. Those who can find the time and are able to do so should consider nursing their baby. The financial benefits are astronomical, and the health benefits for you and your child are absolutely magnificent. Better than being able to buy for cheap, nursing is a completely free option!

If you must use infant formula, be sure to sign up to receive new mommy discounts from the company that makes the formula that you will use. These companies love to send out coupons and other goodies to ensure that you keep buying their product. The coupons will allow you to buy for cheap instead of spending the full amount per can. They will even send you free cans from time to time!

Buy for cheap as much furniture, equipment, and gear as you can from your local thrift store or consignment shops. These stores almost always have great stuff like cribs, walkers, and baby carriers like Snugglies, strollers, bottles, and toys. Your baby does not know that these items are not “new” and neither will anyone else if you are wise with your shopping and make sure that everything that you purchase is clean and safe. Also, if possible do a search to ensure that the items that you are buy for cheap are not items that have been recalled.

Get loads of free stuff, or nearly free, on great websites like Craigslist.org and Freecycle. These sites allow people to post the things that they want to get rid of, and that you could potentially need. Imagine getting whole bags of baby clothes, nursery furniture, and even diapers and coupons for formula. You are sure to find someone that would love to share these items with you for free!

When it comes to baby diapers, start cheap and work your way up. Try out the cheaper diapers first to see if they work for you and your baby. If they do, then great! You will be able to buy for cheap all of the baby diapers that you need…and you will need a lot of them. However, if your child does have an allergic reaction (which he or she could have with any brand, cheap or not), then, try others until you find one that works. If it’s a national brand, then always ask the company for coupons, and canvass the internet on sites like eBay for people selling more coupons that you can buy for cheap.

Have a baby can be an expensive venture if you don’t do a little bit of research and try different money-saving tricks. Your baby is one of the most important things in your life. You are going to need money to care for him or her. So, spend wisely, buy for cheap, and always keep your eye out for bargains.
