Here are some tips for parents who want to start stockpiling baby items. Babies need a whole lot of stuff. It’s never good to accidentally run out of what you need right at a key moment. To prevent that inconvenience, you can create a stockpile of baby products. Here are some tips to help new parents to stockpile baby items.

How to Stock Up on Baby Items

Baby wipes
You really cannot have too many packages of baby wipes. You’re going to need them available at every diaper change. They are also useful for quickly disinfecting high chair trays and car seats. Some parents who stockpile baby wipes combine a coupon for baby wipes with the current sale that a particular store has on them.

Baby wipes have a multitude of uses. Some women find that baby wipes are an effective make-up remover. They are generally less expensive than the products that are actually sold for that purpose. So, even if your baby becomes potty trained before you deplete your stockpile of baby wipes, its ok. There are lots of things to use them for.

Onesies are incredibly useful. They can be used like a t-shirt, or worn by themselves. They also provide some extra “protection” for the clothing that is worn over the onesies. You can even substitute a onesie for pajamas when the weather is warm.

One way to get a great deal on onesies is to wait until a store has a sale on baby products. Look for the packages that hold 3 or more of them (instead of the fancier onesies that are sold individually). Make sure you don’t go overboard. Your baby will, eventually, grow and need a different sized onesie than he or she currently wears.

Your baby is going to need bibs for quite some time. Of course, you need a clean bib for every feeding time. Bibs are also useful for babies that are teething (and drooling a lot). Again, a good way to stockpile bibs is to wait for a baby sale. Look for the ones that can easily be thrown in the wash without falling apart or having the plastic portion “melt”.

Be careful when stockpiling diapers. Go overboard, and you run the risk of having lots of diapers at home that are now too small for your baby to use. You may want to limit your quantity to the amount of diapers that you expect to use in about a month’s time.

One good way to stockpile diapers is to combine a coupon with the discount that the loyalty card from your favorite grocery store offers. Often, the grocery store will have a lower price than if you bought the same diapers from a speciality baby store or a toy store.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
