Baby wise we now buy diapers and wipes off of Amazon because with the subscribe and save option I save 30% off cases and get free shipping.

I've always been one who prides myself in "never paying full price" (it's an exaggeration, but I really do look for the best deal for my money) and that's true when I had a great paying job and now that we're down to one income. I love garage sales and my babies will be wearing loads of hand me downs from my sister's kids. It's actually fun because I've had great "fashion shows" each time I see my niece and nephew, knowing what my babies will get to wear!

Shop sales, and I try to use coupons when I can for stores like Kohl's and Children's Place. It's harder at the grocery store with coupons because we don't each a lot of processed food, so there aren't a lot of coupons available... I buy store brands when they're available and when the quality is comparable.

We also turn set our a/c higher when we're sleeping and not home to keep the electric bills lower.

I also try to take advantage of the public library for books and movies for both myself and the kids. I read A LOT, so it saves me a ton of money!

I've been hitting up sales and rummage sales for clothing and a few baby items.
