As your pregnancy progresses, make sure that you think about other ways to save money so you can have your baby on a budget. You’ll want to take a look at how to create a personal budget if you haven’t already. You’ll also want to decide whether you should use cloth diapers and if cloth diapers can save you money or not (hint: they won’t save every family money). You’ll also want to make sure that you don’t overbuy items for your baby since doing so can cause you major financial trouble. When you’re buying the items you need for your new baby, keep these 10 items you really need for baby in mind so that you don’t overspend. You also may want to check out these 30 things to stop buying and make since they will help you cut your household expenses significantly.
Entertainment. There are days when you’re just too tired to mom anymore, when the baby has been up teething all night and you need just ten minutes of peace and quiet. Why not play that timeless children’s favorite, Sesame Street? It is a great educational program that keeps your little one quiet and content while you freshen up and grab a cup of coffee. (Hopefully not the same one you tried to drink yesterday.) Amazon is offering free downloads of some of the show’s seasons for a limited time, so download away and go get that cup of coffee—you deserve it, Mom!
Baby companies give out a ton of free baby samples but only if they know you're out there and have a baby. If there's a company that makes a baby product you'd like to try, you should visit their website and register your information with them. This way when the baby companies decide to send out free baby samples, they'll automatically send one out to you.
Shutterfly. The earliest days of my kids’ lives are a blur in my memory. Thank goodness I have so many photos to remember them by! By signing up for a Shutterfly account, I got 50 free 4×6 photos, a photo magnet, and a free set of address labels (which was handy, because by the time my oldest slept through the night, I was so tired, I couldn’t remember our address!). Shutterfly also offers free, unlimited storage for as long as you keep your membership. If you’re anything like me, you’ll need that storage!
Free 30 Day Trial to Amazon Prime – If you’re looking to shop Amazon for baby items, having Prime is a must have!

You can sign up for the Amazon Prime free trial HERE if you’ve never done the trial before. It gives you a full 30-days to test whether you want to keep the product.
Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. This is perhaps my favorite of the free diaper finds. This site provides lower income families with free cloth diapers. There is an application and approval process, but if your budget is truly tight, this is a wonderful program to look into. I used it myself with my first baby and found the diapers I was sent were in excellent shape and lasted well beyond my baby’s need for them.
This Saturday, September 8 is National Play Day and we’re celebrating by inviting you to play with the season’s hottest toys.

Books. Some of my most treasured childhood memories are of sitting on my mother’s lap while she read to me. It’s a tradition I kept alive with my own children. We lived about an hour from the nearest town with a library, so I was quite thankful to learn about Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. This amazing program will send your child a free book every month until he is five years old. Just check the site to see if your area is eligible. If not, check out this list of free Kindle books for little ones! Or just check it out anyways—books are awesome.
