I’m so excited to share a new book with you today! I’ve told you about the blog Baby Cheapskate many times over the past few years. It’s where I recommend you go to read diaper reviews and where to learn which toys last before you buy for the holidays. Angie also posts a summary of the best diaper and wipes prices every single week so you can save. Angie’s book, The Baby Cheapskate Guide to Bargains: How to Save on Blankets, Bottles and Everything Baby was released today!
I received a copy for review, and I was so pleased to see the same common sense and reader contributions shared within that you find at the Baby Cheapskate blog. There are lots of real-life and current examples of what real parents use, need, and prefer. She starts with the basics–that you don’t have to buy everything the industry tells you to–and works from there. With the average American family spending more than $23,000 for the first two years of a child’s life, you can buck that trend and find what you need (and want) for a lot less!
Angie includes many of the same principles of shopping smart that you use for non-baby purchases, so it’s a great teaching tool if you’re wanting to learn how to shop for used items, use coupons, and more. It’s honestly good for everyone, not just those with a baby. For those who are pregnant or have a new little one, though, it’s perfect for learning how to get deals both online and in-stores. Consider buying a copy for the next baby shower you’re attending; the new mom will thank you!
