Frugal ways to save for Babies – Swim Diapers, Diaper cream

Now that I have twins and a soon to be 3 year old.  My life is focused on children.  My blog has been focused on it to.  It sort of seems obvious for me.  Right now all I’m thinking about is feedings, and diaper changes.

Here are some awesome blog posts that I came across and thought you should read.  Feel free to pass on to others.

  •  – Reuse disposable swim diapers – This makes perfect sense.  Since disposable swim diapers cost about $.50 it makes sense to get as much out of them as you can.
  • – Make your own Triple Paste – I’m a huge fan of Triple Paste.  I recently used my $1.00 internet coupons at Walmart to get 1 oz for $6.49 but that is still so expensive.  I have bought several HUGE containers of CVS brand desitins and my daughter accidentally dropped it so I need to use the container up.  What a perfect way to use it but to make it into Triple Paste.  So far I’ve used it on my sons and it works amazing!  The cost is pennies since the HUGE 16 oz container of CVS brand desitin cost me $3 before ECBs!
  • Life with A&W – Registry Recommendation for Twins – This is a great list of ideas of what to register for or to look out for at yard sales when you have twins.
  • Life with A&W – Freebies for Multiples – On my very long to do list I plan on writing to companies about my multiples.  Here is a list of companies to write to to get freebies.

More sites to come.  Let me know of other links of interesting frugal things for babies or toddlers that I can share.

Free Samples for Baby

Several of my friends are having babies in the next couple of months and I thought it is time to show them how to get stuff for FREE!

Great website for deals on baby stuff:
Free samples from Walmart

I am a big believer in breast feeding and I did buy my fair share of formula and there isn’t anything wrong with using it.  My daughter LOVED it.  Before baby comes it is a great idea to have formula available.  If you don’t need it you can always give it away or donate it to a mother shelter:
ParentsChoiceFormula Free Sample
Enfamil Free Sample and Free coupons
Similac Free Sample and Free coupons
I strongly recommend Member’s Mark because it is a great deal! Last I checked it was $20 for a very large can.  A small can of Enfamil is about $25.

Birthday Freebies, Specials and Coupons

I love Birthdays!  Birthdays are so much fun especially when you can say you’re 24 again or maybe 21.  *wink wink*

This past year after reading many blogs about birthday freebies I signed up for several of them.  I took an hour or so off from work and picked them up.   This is what I got:

Sephora – Sign up as a Beauty Insider and get a free gift from Sephora on your birthday.  This year it is a small white eyeshadow, small mascara and small eyeliner.

Cold Stone Creamery – Cold Stone Creamery will send you an email with a coupon for a free ice cream creation to enjoy on your birthday. All ages are welcome!  The server that helped me that day gave me a bigger cup!  I gave him a tip.  Thanks!  It was wonderful.

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels – Sign up for the Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Perks and not only will you get coupons for special offers all year long but you will get something on your birthday.  I got a B1G1 coupon!  Yummy!

Bath & Body Works – As I’ve mentioned in the past, Bath & Body Works sends so many coupons and in this case I combined it with a sale.  The cashier even gave me the coupon back to use again.

Godiva – The same day I was going to the mall to pick up some of my freebies I realized that you can sign up for Godiva Chocolate Rewards the same day and get 1 FREE piece of chocolate and you will get 1 FREE piece each month just by walking in.  If you don’t have the reward card make sure you remember the email address you used to sign up.

Rita’s Italian Ice – Join today and receive exclusive offers year round, a special birthday treat and the latest scoop on Rita’s– all delivered straight to your inbox.  Joining the club is FREE! Click here to sign up today!  I got a B1G1 treat and then if you sign up your kids they too will get a treat for their birthday.

Recently my daughter had a birthday!  We had a great time.  We decided to have a simple family get together but we also included a trip to Toys R Us.  It was so much fun.

Toys ‘R’ Us – Children ages 2 – 10 will receive a birthday card and surprise gift from Geoffrey when you sign them up for Geoffrey’s Birthday Club.

In the mail I got a $5 off a $25 and then a week closer to her birthday she got a $3 off a $3 purchase, the best part is you can combine these coupons!  Woohoo! We ended up getting a baby doll stroller, baby doll bottles, ball, Popsicle holders and a play shopping cart with fake food for $22!

She got there and had a great time playing with the toys. Plus she got a balloon, a crown and her name announced on the loud speaker.  She was a little princess.

Baskin Robbins – Get a free ice cream treat if you sign up for their Birthday Club.  If you also sign up your kids they too will get an ice cream treat.
