I have actually bought shirts at Goodwill and all pretty much brand new! I was also lucky because my best friend had her baby June 1st and had her tubes tied and figured she'd give me all her clothes (mostly pants). So I made out pretty good!

That's funny that you just posted this because I just found a coupon for a store near here in the bay area that has maternity and baby consignment! I was really excited. I am not so much on a tight budget, but i think its crazy to spend tons of money on clothes you'll be wearing for a few months!! I went into pea and a pod and about died!! I couldn't belive the clothes were THAT expensive!

Look in your local phone book for consignment shops, we have a few in our area and one is strictly maternity and baby items. I am going tomorrow because when I called she said there are a lot of things that still have tags on them! I would just call consignment shops in the area and ask if they carry maternity clothes. Also try ebay! Good luck, I know maternity clothes are so expensive when we are only wearing them for a few months. I just bought some things at Old Navy and got tank tops for $2.97, I am just going to wear them under sweaters that I have and leave the sweaters unbuttoned. I also got a pair of jeans there for $9.99!

I dont know what stores you have there, but Goodwill has good things. We have a Babyland here, which sells baby clothes, of course, but through teen and now maternity too. All used, but in great shape. I love it. Another place to check is Freecycle.org Find the one for your area, and sign up and ask if anyone has any to give you. It's convenient, and I've gotten a lot of items for me and the kids through that.
My youngest weaned at 31 months. (I was pregnant, so didn't mind. But when I lost the baby, I was really upset.) I homeschool, use natural products, cosleep, cloth diapers, wear my baby, attachment parent, don't vaccinate, and love God, my husband of over 19 years, and my kids!

I agree, Ebay is great. Also, many towns have children's clothing consignment stores, and sometimes they carry maternity as well. I inhereted a ton of clothes from my sister-in-law, and have a couple of friends who, every time one of us gets prenant we just pass the bins of clothes to them! Maybe if you know of a friend or relative who just had a baby you could ask to borrow her clothes?
Old Navy and Target have a decent selection, and often have sales as far as new stuff goes. Also, we have an an outlet mall near us that has a Motherhood Maternity.

I've also bought clothes off of ebay. A lot of them are brand new also, so it's great. You need to know your size in the brands though, so I would suggest finding out what size you are in gap, old navy, motherhood, etc., and then you can buy those with confidence!

Have you tried Ebay? I have been buying maternity clothes secondhand and picking up some real bargains - half the time the clothes have hardly been worn. It can be good to go into maternity shops and see what they have and try them on so that you see what suits, and then go and have a search on Ebay for the same thing secondhand. You can pick up some real bargains, and the best thing is that once you have finished with them you can list them on Ebay and get some of the money you spent on them back.

I was amazed at how expensive cute maternity clothes are. I have a very strict budget at the moment and have decided to buy preowned maternity clothes. The only problem is now that I don't know of any good stores that can help me with this. If you guys know of any good stores online it would be great if you could let me in on it. I live in Atlantic County, New Jersey so if there are any stores close by that u know of...let me know. Thanx!!!
