frugal tips for a new mom

5 Frugal Tips for the New Mom #PampersSavingsCA


Every once and a while I get asked how I became the Common Cents Mom. What made me frugal? What made me a deal hunter? Truth be told it was becoming a mom. When my now teen was born, I was homeless. Yes, homeless and I had to restart my life. I quickly learned how to stretch my dollar and look for deals. I learned every money saving tip and technique I could they have come in handy the past few years as my nieces began giving birth. Babies are expensive, so I will pass on my frugal tips for the new mom just like I did with my nieces.

Earlier this month I shared a few tips but now let us get real and talk about things that are going to impact the pocketbook. Here are five tips that will help you save money during those early years:

Do Everything with a Bit of Planning

Ever gone to a store to get one thing and you end up with 12 as you browse the aisle and you don’t even really need some of the stuff in your court? I know I am guilty of it. Here is a well-known secret I am going to share with you, with a bit of planning you can ALWAYS have the best price. Sales cycle. Did you hear that? The average time between great sales on items is normally 6-8 weeks. When it is on sale by enough to last until the next sale. As well, since we are talking about being a new mom, do not overbuy, they grow quickly!

Apps are Your Best Friend

Anyone who knows me, knows I love Flipp. I was there very first brand ambassador. I am still a brand ambassador for a reason it helps families save time and money. Any app that does that can be my best friend! If this is your first time reading CommonCentsMom I have a couple of favorite Flipp posts you can read to learn more about the app here , but let me tell you it is available on both iOS and Android, and you will love how easy it is to make a shopping list and check your local flyers for the best deal in town that day! Call me crazy, but I think that is great information that can help any new mom save money.

I do use other apps to earn cash back on a regular basis. Who doesn’t like getting money back on items they are already purchasing. I use Caddle and Checkout 51 on a regular basis. This week on the Checkout 51 app you can earn $3 cash back on Pampers Cruisers, Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers Easy Ups and Pampers Wipes. You can also earn $2 cash back on Pampers Baby Dry.

Become a Coupon Queen

Ever watch Extreme Couponing? Well, learning how to coupon is pretty easy, and when it comes to being a new mom, there are plenty of coupons available. You can check coupon sites for coupons that can be printed or mailed to your home. Are you on social media? Follow your favourite brands and you can also often get special coupons just for those who follow them.

Right now,  get $1-$3 off Pampers products at and pampers.caYou can also find coupons in store on shelves. Ever see those? I do all the time. I was told there are  save$3.00 when you buy any ONE Pampers® Easy Ups or ONE Pampers® Wipes 320ct or higher at Loblaws, Real Canadian Super Stores and Shoppers Drug Mart (coupons available in-store while quantities last.). Combine a coupon and a cash back offer and you save even more. Yes, you can do that!

Become the Price Matching Princess

Do you know what store prices match in Canada? When it comes to price matching in Canada use the following retailers when it comes to baby needs:

  • Walmart
  • Real Canadian Superstore
  • No Frills ( may limit quantity)
  • Fresh Co ( each store may limit differently
  • Babies as Us (Toys are Us)
  • Giant Tiger

Earn Cash or Rewards as you Shop

One of the things most major retailers are doing these days is rewarding loyal customers so are the banks. When you shop with a cash back credit card or rewards credit card you are earning rewards or cash back. I prefer cash back. I also have friends who prefer travel rewards. When you shop always have at least one card ready for you to collect cash or points that can be redeemed for goods. Did you know you can even double dip? An example fo this shop using your Airmiles Card and a credit card that collects rewards or cash back and you earn twice. You do not want to leave those dollars sitting with the banks and retailers.

There definitely are some easy ways to save money when you are a new parent and I hope these tips help you. Let me know of any others.
