Couponing may be intimidating to some people, but it can save you serious bucks when it comes to baby items. Sign up for the mailing lists on the Web sites of your (or your babe's) favorite products to get coupons and samples sent to your home or e-mail inbox. Most companies will send you a coupon just for signing up -- how easy is that?

Also, don't forget to clip coupons from the Sunday paper and use promotion codes when shopping online. Some grocery stores allow you to double or stack your coupons so that you can double, triple or even quadrupole your savings on an item. If you get a manufacturer's coupon from the Sunday paper and stack it with a store coupon, you can save both amounts on the item you are purchasing. This trick works for everything, not just baby-related items, so feel free to splurge a little on yourself, too. You deserve it!
