Borrow what you temporary need
Thing like books, CDs and DVDs for baby that may only be needed for a duration should be borrowed from either the library or other parents instead of spending a small fortune on them.
Go for second hand
Buying second hand items will greatly help you save more. Most second hand shops are careful with what they accept so you could be buying something that is almost new.
Buy only what you need
Not every thing is a necessity at a particular point in time. Avoid impulse buying. Anything you can conveniently do without should be avoided. Whatever you can do yourself don’t spend money buying it. It is cheaper doing certain things like food then buying baby formula.
You can swap with a parent who has what you need now but do not have. There are some baby equipments you have now that may only be needed in the next six months, trade it with those who have what you need now.
