Budget Friendly Tips For New Moms

So you’re going to be a mom or maybe you’ve just had your new bundle of joy. Babies can be expensive, they grow so much so fast and require so much gear. At Kid to Kid we have some budget friendly tips to help you save money so you can spend more time with your little one.

Make a list

Making lists is a great way to make a budget and prioritize the things you want vs the things you need. If you have previous children, take stock of their old things if you have some and look at them and inspect everything for signs of wear and tear and list what you don’t have. Don’t forget the diapers!

Shop resale

When you shop resale you’re sure to find adorable unique one of a kind items to dress your little one in. Don’t forget about yourself though! Kid to Kid also has a beautiful selection of maternity just for you. All gently used brand names you know and love plus maybe a few new ones for you and your child to love!

Buy a variety of sizes!

Newborns and infants are rapid growers and it’s important to make sure they have the proper sizes. So instead of for example you have 12 outfits in one size, break the 12 outfits into bigger sizes you can keep for when they outgrow the smaller stuff.

Buy most baby gear second hand

Kid to Kid sells baby gear and let’s face it, the gear like strollers, cribs, high chairs, and swings are sometimes the most expensive and important things on your list so by shopping with us you’re saving a lot. Just remember to inspect all baby gear for signs of wear and tear and research the safety of everything you buy. We at Kid to Kid make every effort to ensure all gear is thoroughly inspected and safe for your baby. 

Sell to us

If you have used maternity, toys, books, or baby gear we’d love to buy it. You can earn cash for the things they’ve outgrown and shop for things your child needs now.

There’s lots to do as a new mom and shopping resale is a great way to find many of the more expensive things on your list at a fraction of the cost. So when you’re shopping for a new baby and maternity, Kid to Kid is a great budget friendly option so you can worry less and save more time for your new bundle of joy.

Stroller Deep Dive

Baby strollers as everyone knows, are quintessential items for parents with young children. They provide a safe and comfortable way to transport infants and toddlers while on the go. There are so many different types and styles of baby strollers available on the market, each with its own features and benefits. So where to begin and what should you buy? 

Kid to Kid is here to help give you a deep dive into strollers and to give you all the info you need to choose the right stroller for your little ones. Plus we have some tips and tricks so you can find a quality stroller for a fair price.

Here are some of the most common types of baby strollers:

Full-sized strollers

These are the most common type available, and are suitable for all ages, from newborns to toddlers. They usually have a wide range of features, such as adjustable seats, collapsible for easy storage space, canopies, trays, and storage compartments.

Umbrella strollers

These are lightweight and easy to maneuver, making them a good option for travel or quick trips around town. Most are extremely simple in design, and some come with an umbrella cover to keep out the sun and rain. They are also the easiest to store because of their simple shape. These strollers are typically less expensive than full-sized ones and are best for older babies and toddlers.

Jogging strollers

These strollers have large, air-filled tires and are designed for parents who want to be active and love to jog or run with their babies. They are meant for outdoor use and rough terrain. These kinds are more aerodynamic for speed and have three wheels instead of the usual four for greater maneuverability. They provide a smooth ride and are suitable for babies six months and up.

Double strollers

These strollers are designed for parents of twins or two children, but some come as triple and even quad! They can be configured in various ways to accommodate different needs. You can even in some models have children of two different ages or sizes in their proper seats. They come in many different styles, including side-by-side,  front and back, and cart style. 

Travel systems

These strollers come with a detachable infant car seat that can be used in the car and snapped straight onto the stroller frame. This makes it easier to transfer your baby from the car to the stroller without ever waking them up. Many models grow with your child to accommodate their sizes as they grow. 

Keep in mind that shopping for a baby stroller, there are several factors to consider, such as your budget, lifestyle, and the age and size of your child. It’s important to choose a stroller that is not only safe, comfortable, and convenient for both you and your child, but also fits your lifestyle. Look for strollers that meet safety standards, have adjustable features, and fit your needs and preferences. There’s nothing wrong with having a few different kinds of strollers in your home for use depending on where you’re going and what activities you’re doing that day. 

At Kid to Kid, we buy and sell gently used strollers and baby gear. We also inspect all the gear we buy and make every effort to ensure what you are buying is the safest and highest quality. When your child outgrows their stroller you can then sell it to us and earn cash for the things they need.

So remember, baby strollers are an important investment for parents with young children. With so many different types and styles available, there is a stroller out there that can meet the needs of every family. Do your research and really think about your lifestyle and what kinds will best suit your needs. When you’ve decided, come by your local Kid to Kid and pick one out. You’ll feel great because you saved money and your baby will be riding in comfort and style.

Depending on the climate, your child will need a pair of sandals for warmer weather. While there are many styles, it might be recommended to have some closed-toed sandals on hand for an active child to protect their feet.

Whether it’s a swimsuit or swim trunks, swimwear is essential for trips to the pool or beach. A good safety tip is to buy the brightest colors especially contrasts such as reds, oranges, yellows, and pinks so they can be easily seen underwater!

Comfortable and cozy pajamas are a must for a good night’s sleep. Choose soft fabrics that are not restricting and are breathable. Remember that seasons and weather should also be kept in mind when shopping.

3 Reasons Resale Helps The Environment

Resale is a great way to help the environment in several ways. At Kid to Kid, we buy and sell new and gently used name brand and vintage clothes, maternity, books, toys, baby and sports gear. We think resale should be not only environmentally friendly but the affordable trendy option.

Here are three key reasons how it helps our environment:

Reduces Waste

The fashion industry is a big contributor to waste and pollution. When we buy and sell pre-owned clothing, Kid to Kid helps to reduce the amount of clothing that ends up in landfills. By keeping the cycle of clothing and other items going we can extend the life of these items and reduce waste which will have a huge positive impact on the environment and leave it for future generations to come.

Saves Resources

Making new clothes takes a lot of water and resources. When you buy and sell pre-owned clothing, you’re decreasing the demand for new clothing and conserving water and valuable resources to go to other much needed areas.

Reduces Carbon Footprint

Making clothes is a huge leader in greenhouse emissions from the start of growing crops, the production, and finally the transportation of the finished product. When you shop at Kid to Kid you are reducing the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted and choosing to help the environment one item at a time.

Resale helps the environment by reducing waste, saving resources, and reducing the carbon footprint associated with fashion. By choosing to shop at Kid to Kid you can do your part to promote a more sustainable and environmentally friendly place for yourself and your children to live in.
