Oh my goodness the cost it takes to raise a baby. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Right? I really think it takes a village's paycheck to make it possible.

There is so much stuff that a baby and even a child needs. Oh and there are stuff that you want them to have as well. I mean being a child is fun. So if you can find a way to save money you need to do that.

When my daughter was pregnant a post popped up on Facebook about a "Just Between Friends Sale". I had to find out about it. Boy was this sale a lifesaver. We went to one before my grand daughter was born.

We attended our second one when she was a few months old. They have these sales at the Amarillo Civic Center once in the spring and once in the fall. They are designed to help parents sell their gently used items.

Which then helps us buy the stuff we need at a fraction of the cost. I mean it really does end up saving a lot. So the next sale is coming up next week. So if you have kids or are about to have one. Go. Really you need to.
