Day 126 - Buy Clothes in Groups

Today's Tip - If you find a great outfit on sale, buy several sizes.

Let's say you are at the store, and you see a cute outfit with a soccer ball on it. It's cheap (in the neighborhood of a buck fifty) made of some nice sturdy cotton so it'll stand up to the urine, poop and vomit trifecta. You snatch it up, only to have your baby outgrow it in a month. By that time, the costs of baby clothes have quadrupled!

A good way to get the most for your money is to pay attention for those great deals. And then, buy out their stock in the next three sizes. That way, you'll have a cheap outfit that's cute for a year or so. Almost like he's wearing big people clothes!

My grandma bought our son the same outfit in a 9M size and a 12M size so we could pick what size fit him better. Both did...we want to hang on to them both! Babies don't get razzed in US Weekly like celebrities do for wearing the same clothes to an event, so feel free to stock up on good deals. And once he gets older, he'll have an outfit for a year or so because he doesn't outgrow it, so I don't see anything wrong with the practice.
