Thanks to Angela for this Frugal Baby Tip!

If you don't have old clothes laying around that you can cut up you could try Yard Sales, thrift shops (the lower end ones I have better luck with), Salvation Army type stores.... There's one in town that sells everything for $1 a piece! I doubt if every town has a store like this,
but if you can take a drive (either literally or through the Yellow Pages), you might be surprised what you find... I was.

I found the most when I looked under Social Service Organizations... consignment stores yielded almost nothing... I found that most consignment stores, in this area, just didn't advertise with the phone book.

You could also try the fabric stores, reduced racks, or remnant bin. Another place that might be good this time of year would be any department stores...they are trying to move the winter stuff out for the Spring/Summer merchandise and last year (Fall) I got a ton of baby clothes for less then a dollar a piece!

Most of it was Carter separates.... I spent less then $20US, and bought what normally retailed for around $150... Okay, this has gotten way off topic, sorry!
