Avoid the rookie
parents' common mistake of buying your precious new addition brand-new clothes and head to JACK AND JILL CONSIGNMENT BOUTIQUE
. Sure, your little bundle is the cutest thing you've ever seen, but your baby's hygiene is amazingly gross. All of those bodily functions -- drooling, spitting up, peeing and pooping -- end up on baby's clothes and, for that matter, your
clothes. Give your wallet a break and buy secondhand items and a good stain remover. Jack and Jill features a great selection of gently used and seasonally correct children's clothing, as well as strollers, bouncers and toys. The equipment selection varies, but it's a great place to check before you head out to a gigantic baby store to pay full price. And of course, once your little booger has grown out of the goods, you can resell them back to the shop.
