Your baby will grow out of her clothes quickly. Here's how to save while still making them look extra adorable. Ask family and friends if they have hand-me-downs or organize a swap. Include parents with kids of different ages, and everyone will go home with something new. Go online. At Swap Baby Goods and Swapmamas.com, you can snag baby clothes for cash, a barter, or even for free. You can purchase used brand name apparel online at Thred Up, Baby Outfitter, and Rascalsresale.com. For fancier items your baby will wear only once, consider renting. Sites like the Couture Baby and Borrow Baby Couture make it easy, and cheaper than purchasing. If you're buying new, always look online for coupons first. Coupon Sherpa and Retail Me Not offer great deals. Smartphone apps like Red Laser and Shop Savvy send savings right to your cell. Now that's smart indeed.
