Using money-saving parenting skills online

As new fathers are quickly discovering, baby clothes don’t last long and new ones can chip away at the family budget.

However, there is a way for fathers to use their money-saving parenting skills to find deals on children’s clothes. All they will need is a computer with an internet connection and a credit card.

Some parents have reported great success from online sites such as eBay and Craigslist in terms of finding clothes for their little ones. Both sites are known for discounted items such as clothes and can be a way for many fathers to keep their budget in line.

Things to consider with both sites: eBay is mostly safe with online purchases thanks to incorporating PayPal’s technology. With Craigslist, fathers should know they will be dealing with the seller directing via email and should proceed with a low level of caution.

Another way to save money could be to buy the clothes in advance. Since babies and toddlers grow quite fast, some fathers have found that buying the right size as well as the next size up can save time and money, particularly if there is a good deal on the clothes.ADNFCR-1662-ID-19288169-ADNFCR
