Tips for Dressing Babies & Toddlers on a Budget


Shopping for children’s clothing on a budget can be difficult, specially as a new parent. It’s so hard to walk into a children’s store and not buy every outfit you see. Ruffles, dresses, cute accessories, everything adds up and before you know it; the budget is blown.

When my children were born, their closets were packed to the rim with clothing. Half of those outfits were never worn. The fact is that kids grow before our eyes and those 5 outfits that you just splurged on will be outgrown within a matter of days/weeks or maybe months if you are lucky.

Luckily, brands like Garanimals clothing can help moms keep the pace without outpacking their budget.

Here are my tips for shopping children’s clothing while on a budget

Mix and Match Pieces

What I really love to do with children’s clothing is mix match outfits! Be mindful of what you are purchasing and choose clothing pieces that will pair well with other outfits. This will allow you to create several different looking outfits without the spending.

Shop Value

There is nothing wrong with shopping for value! Garanimals is a brand that moms trust when shopping for value. Their clothing is fashionable, comfortable and guarantees quality and value. You can find Garanimals clothing for newborns all the way through 5T, taking care of the fastest growing years of your child’s life.

Buy Big

Shop big! When shopping for children’s clothing, I always purchase in the next size up. Specially after the first year, a size bigger won’t make a huge difference but it will give your child more growing room and give you more time before the next shopping trip.

Little ones grow fast and toddlers play hard. When your little boy runs holes into his pants, it makes it a little easier to swallow when you can shop Garnimals at Walmart.
