We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what products, tips, and tricks they'd recommend to help parents save money. Here are their useful suggestions:
1.Swap out your kid's toys every few months so old toys feel like new.
2.Take advantage of your local library. You can save tons of money by checking out books and movies for free.
3.And keep track of all the free things your city and neighborhood have to offer in order to entertain your kids, or set up an engaging outdoor space that'll keep your kids captivated but won't cost you anything in admission fees beyond the initial investment.
4.Try reusable diapers instead of disposable ones to save you thousands and thousands of dollars over the course of your baby's diaper time. And, yeah, "Ewwwww! Poop!" But when you have a baby, there will always be poop in your life.
5.If you just can't imagine using reusable diapers, try generic brand diapers with high reviews, like these Target ones.
