I am ridiculously cheap...especially when it comes to baby clothes. Don't get me wrong, I love cute baby clothes, and my son dresses well, but I hate to spend a lot of money on onesies that he will be able to wear for maybe 3 months, tops. So I bargain shop like made, checking consignment, coupons, sales, and I have a price in my head that I try not to go over per onesie/outfit.

What type of shopper are you?

I'm always about garage sales, thrift stores, etc. It's a little harder for me being overseas though. I have found some really good deals on some super cute Gymboree stuff on Ebay. I also shop clearance a lot.

I don't think any of Charlotte's clothes were bought full-price.

walmart--$3.25 onsies.....LOL

I will buy a few cute things from BRU if they tickle my fancy (like the Carter's Rockstart baby collection) but eh he stays home most of the time with Grandma or my parents so it's not like he has to dress to impress. I'm still pretty picky about what he wears out and about though.

His grandma caught the Kohl's winter sales and bought a ton of 18month clothes--mostly sweatshirts for like 0.50 or 1.00. When he's 18 months it will be August.In.South.Carolina. Only one of the hottest f'n months we have....LOL Oh well it's the thought that counts I guess

I never pay full price. I don't do used normally, but I am using my last sons clothes on Reece. I'm weird about germs. I'm a coupon user for sure. They grow so fast why spend so much??

I've splurged some. I spent $45 on a dress I fell in love with from The Gap. Fancy, so she's only worn it once and I will probably only get a couple more wears out of it.

I justify it by the fact that we've barely bought anything else. We had newborn-3 month neutral clothes from DS, some gifts, and a HUGE box of hand-me-downs from a friend!

I get some stuff from garage sales and some at walmart or shopko. Most of Paige's clothes though either my parents or Dh's parents got for her.

I love Once Upon a Child. Otherwise I love a bargain and head to clearance racks. I'd still bargain shop even if I were filthy rich. =)

I splurge on something full price every now and then, but most of it is definitely cheap. I used to do a lot of Once Upon a Child, but ours has gotten...not so great about pricing. The last time I was in there, I found a couple outfits new with tags, and they were actually selling them for MORE than the price that was on the tag from the original store

Ha! My mom has done this too. I have a stash of heavy fleece sleepers in 6 month upstairs. Never mind that he's in 6m now, and it's like a hundred degrees out there. But it was a good deal!

I am most definitely a bargain shopper. I do thrift stores, clearance, and anything else I buy must be on sale. I very, very, very rarely buy anything full price.
