Also, keep in mind you don't really need a ton of stuff at first. You can get inexpensive packs of onsies and long pjs. For a new baby, you'll be fine with 6-10 onsies and 6-10 pjs. Get a pack of socks and a 2-3 hats and 3-4 blankets and a ton of bibs. Bibs are inexpensive help catch the spit up mess and keep you from changing and washing so often. If you plan on going out with the new baby, get one, maybe two, cute outfits. Don't focus on building an extensive wardrobe for a newborn. She'll outgrow everything too fast and it won't be worth it.

either look up on freecycle, craigs list, or ask your local health visitor for help she will give you pointers on what to do. i myself am having trouble buying more clothes for my son and she's getting in touch with a local hospice who will privde you with vouchers. there is loads of help out there its just asking the right people. good luck!!!

i'm known to hit up a thrift store immediately lol As Alicia said, too, baby showers help.

I would think any thrift store like "Once Upon a Child" or Value Village would do the trick. Have you had a baby shower? If not, throw one yourself!

Thankyou all for the advise as to wear to get things. I have 4 boys so having a girl is different and had nothing for her.

have you looked at thrift stores? the younger kids are sometimes the easier it is to get away with gently worn clothes.we have a store called the children's orchard they only buy used clothing that looks new. when you are done with them they might buy them back from you also.

Craigslist. Goodwill. Garage Sales. 2nd hand sales. We got so much stuff this way. I ended up getting (on Craigslist), a pack n play, swing (retail 160) and trash bags full of clothes for $100. Search around. My mom found us a whole lot of clothes from goodwill with the original tags still attached in the dollar bin. We mostly have onesies. A few sweaters, pants, sleepers, etc. But we live in a very tropical climate, so we don't need a lot of warmer gear.

Lots of good ideas have been given to you. We shop at garage sales, thrift stores and consignments. I'm not sure where you are, but my favorite consignment is Maybe they'll be in your area soon.
Also, try this website:
With thred up, you sign up and they send you 10 pre-paid postage boxes. Then you go on the site and chose a box of clothes from one of the other members. They send you the box of clothes for $13. Then you need to post a box of clothes on the website for another person to chose from. Then it's your turn to chose a box again. It may take you a while to get some good clothes out of this, but once your daughter starts growing out of what she has, you'll be able to post more boxes and chose more boxes.

17, garage sales, look for baby resale shops in your area and you can also buy used baby clothes on ebay. Don't worry, there are always plenty of people trying to get rid of baby clothes and the great thing is that most babies only wear outfits a couple times so you can usually get used clothes in really good condition for awesome prices. Just look around and check online.
