Anxious To See New Photos Of Little Niece ( Momimhar posted on November 15th, 2013 )

Our little baby E is growing fast.  She’s 10 months now and is very adorable.  In two months she will be turning 1!  Oh how time flies! My family and I were on vacation back home when she was born and I was very happy I got to hold her when she was a newborn.  My whole family was so delighted to see and welcome the new bright big bundle of joy.

My sister-in-law gave birth to my niece in a birthing center in our town.  They paid about $80 for the midwife’s service.  She had a normal delivery and I don’t think she had a shot of anesthesia.  But she made it.  Her delivery was successful.

The recovery period for a normal delivery doesn’t take long.  It usually takes about a month or two then moms should feel well.  But moms have to be very careful in lifting things up.  She has to watch her work loads.  Over-fatigue and stress can lead to sickness.  Remember there’s a little one depending on you.  Request for help from friends and family when needed.  Same advice I told my sister-in-law because I know her better.

My little niece is so adorable that she is.  I bet she is keeping her mom busy.  Or maybe she is being high maintenance.  I don’t know.  Whichever it is, I miss her.  I can’t wait to see my new niece again…and everybody, of course.  I sent her DD’s infant clothes.  I asked my sister-in-law to send me new photos of our dear one.  So anxious to see them.

Saving Money on Kids Clothes – What Moms Need To Know ( Momimhar posted on October 16th, 2013 )

Saving money on kids clothes can be easy to do if you really know what you are doing. Every mom needs to know what she can do to save money on her kid’s clothes. Whether you need baby clothes, girls clothes or boys clothes there are certain things that you can do to save money on them.

Shop For Kids Clothes In Advance

Don’t wait until your kids need new clothes for the winter or summer to buy them. In the spring start purchasing clothes for next winter. Since stores are transitioning from winter clothes to clothes for warmer weather they will be lowering prices in order to get the winter clothes off the shelf so they have room for their new stock. The key to buying clothes ahead for kids is to buy one size bigger than whatever size they are currently wearing. At the end of summer and the beginning of fall is the time to purchase new bathing suits, summer dresses, shorts and tank tops for your kids for next season.

Acquire Hand Me Downs

If you know anyone who has children slightly older than yours, accept hand me downs from those parents. Just make sure that they do not want the hand me downs back after your kids have outgrown them or you will have to return them in the same condition they were given to you in. Otherwise, acquiring hand me down clothing is a great way to save money.

Frequent Consignment Shops

Consignment shops often carry kid’s clothing at a much cheaper price than department stores. And since consignment shops buy used clothes from their customers once your kids are done with the clothes you can try to sell them back to the shop. Consignment shops only accept clothing in good condition, so if you want to sell yours back try to keep them looking and smelling fresh and new.

 

Frequent Yard Sales

Shopping at yard sales can also help you purchase kid’s clothing for less. Even if you only shop yard sales for special occasion clothes you can still find some good deals. Many parents sell their little girls dresses when they outgrow them. This beats paying department store prices for clothing your kids will only wear occasionally.

Shopping Online

Shopping online provides you with an opportunity to find online coupon codes that you can use to save money on children’s clothing. Most of the time these online codes work on regularly priced merchandise as well as sale and clearance merchandise. Some of them even get you free shipping on large enough purchases. Subscribing to a site such as Groupons allows you to purchase coupons for both online and brick-and-mortar stores.

These are just a few of the things you can do in order to save money on your baby clothes, girls clothes and more. Saving money is important when you have kids to raise and shopping smart helps accomplish that task.

How to Get the Best Deals On Your Childs Clothes ( Momimhar posted on October 16th, 2013 )

Getting the best deal on children’s clothes is easy to do if you know how to shop smart. There are several things you can do that will help you save money on kid’s clothes. Here are some ways to get the best deals on clothes for your kids.

Shop Thrift Stores

Thrift stores are a great place to find children’s clothes for cheap. Since kids outgrow clothes so quickly you will want to stock up on clothes that will fit them now and clothes that will fit them in the near future. Thrift stores are good for this because they often have the cheapest prices you will be able to find. Make friends with the staff of a thrift store and ask them to let you know when new shipments of kid’s clothes come in, so you can get there while you still have a good selection.

Shop Discount Department Stores

Discount department stores usually have a kid’s section, so check them out if you had no luck at the thrift store. Many discount department stores make it possible for you to purchase higher end brands of clothes for less than those clothes would cost you somewhere else. This is perfect for parents who have a fashion conscious kid because it allows parents to let their kids dress in style without breaking their budget.

Flea Markets

If there is a flea market or yard sale near you, go see what you can get. Many people sell their kid’s clothes at flea markets and yard sales after the kids have outgrown them or just don’t like them anymore. These places can be a gold mine when it comes to stocking up on children’s clothes that are easy on your budget. This also allows you to avoid the chaos of going into a department store to shop for clothes. Flea markets and yard sales provide for a more laid back shopping experience. Sometimes you can negotiate prices with flea market vendors or individuals participating in a yard sale.

Clothing Swap

If you have friends, co-workers or neighbors that also have kids, try to set up a clothing swap. This is where people bring in kid’s clothes that aren’t wanted or needed anymore and trade those clothes with others. A clothing swap can be a fun way to interact with other parents and obtain some children’s clothing without having to spend money to do so. Just because your child doesn’t like a piece of clothing or can’t wear it doesn’t mean that someone else’s child won’t want it.

These are effective ways to get kid’s clothes and keep them stocked with the clothes they need as they grow and mature. Keeping up with new trends in kid’s clothes can help you learn where other parents shop and which stores have the best deals. Paying attention to the clothing stores you frequent can help you catch sales that you can take advantage of.

Moms Always Find Little Ways To Earn Extra Money ( Momimhar posted on May 14th, 2013 )

It’s May already and I haven’t started sorting out the stuff that I would like to sell at the garage sale here in our neighborhood.  This month is the best month to do a garage sale, you know.  Besides getting mostly fair weather, lots of people go to a garage sale between April and May than June and July because the latter months are very hot because it’s summer.  Even me myself doesn’t like driving around hunting for garage sales in the summer.

Here’s some of the items I need to get rid of:

1.  Newborn clothes – just some of them because I will give a few selection to a friend’s upcoming baby girl.

2.  Infant clothes – a few of then needs to go because I already save some for my new niece back home.

3.  Infant toys – aside from giving a few to my new niece, I am going to sell the rest in the garage sale

4.  Women’s shoes – I have a few pairs of shoes that I don’t wear anymore.

5.  Women’s clothing – There are some clothes that I don’t wear anymore.  I already gave some of them to my younger sisters, cousins, niece, and young girls back home.

6.  Kitchen electrics – we have a couple or four electrics we need to get rid of

7.  Office equipment and office supplies – well, my hubby have old office equipment that needs to go.

What I need right now is plenty of time to gather them all together and segregate.  A week maybe?  Wish me luck.  As I have lots of stuff to do online and offline, hopefully I can still manage to take care of the things that will help me earn extra money.  Moms like me who want to earn extra bucks will always find little ways to make money online or offline.  My cousin had already started selling stuff and I also want to join the garage sale in her neighborhood.

Neighborhood Garage Sale ( Momimhar posted on May 27th, 2012 )

We had a garage sale in our neighborhood yesterday.  The items I mostly displayed were baby clothes and baby gear.  The changing table furniture was also out for sale, and sold quickly.  What’s nice about having a garage sale is when you sell the items you want to get rid off.  The weather was great yesterday morning too.

Baby bath, bouncer, stroller

Though we really didn’t have much on display in the garage, our neighbors across the street had a LOT of items, and mostly were baby stuff too.  They have two kids, a young girl and a toddler boy.  So they pulled out all the cribs, bassinet, baby clothes, and toddler toys that they don’t need.  Since they are located in the corner, theirs were the first to be seen from the road and driving traffic to the neighborhood.

Yard sale at the neighbor's

There was a buyer who asked me if there’s still infant clothing that I want to sell.  He asked that question because he saw my little princess walking around and playing with the stroller and the display items.  I grabbed the box of baby clothes from 3 months to 12 months and picked a few pairs of outfits for his granddaughter who was with him.  He liked the baby outfits so he payed a good amount for those.  I am still saving some baby clothing for my future niece and friends’ newborn girls.  It is nice to give the slightly used baby clothes to those who need them.

My cousin and her daughter came over for the garage sale.  We walked to see what we can see at the other yards while my husband man the garage.  Her daughter found a big red Christmas teddy bear.  My little girl found this yellow duck.  The owner gave the girls the toys for free.  Yay!

Baby got this yellow ducky for free

The items left unsold are still available for sale in a reasonable price-the infant bath tub, bouncer, and universal stroller.  If you are interested, please let me know.
