Having a baby is really exciting. However, as parents we should prepare for the increased expenses that come to our lives with the new arrival. Most of the moms including myself stay at home to take care of their babies. That means, you need to depend on one salary and savings if available. So, it is better to think of saving in every single way in order to have a smooth life without worrying too much about the expenditures on baby stuff. Here are some of the tips from me to save money on baby products and expenses. Hope these are helpful for you if you are keen on saving some money from your baby stuff.

Sign Up for Free Samples and baby clubs

Most companies send free samples of their products. Take the advantage of this and receive free samples or free trial offers. Some samples are really small in portion, but there are companies who are generous to offer a full size product as a free sample.

Baby clubs are another way to receive free samples, offers and discounts. I signed up with most of the baby clubs for moms in Singapore. Sometimes it is really exciting to receive free gifts for my son for special occasions such as his birthday.

Simply search the words “free baby samples” in Google and you will see lot of offers available in your area. Your only cost is may be to join with their newsletter.

Breastfeed as long as you can

Well, breastfeeding is not only cheaper when you consider money, it also the best source of nutrients that you can give to your baby. Cost of formula is considerable when you exclusively depend on it. I actually, breastfed my son till he is 2 years old. But, when he was 6 months old, we introduced formula milk together with breastfeeding. Other than breastfeeding, there are many ways to save on baby formula, such as buying bulk or use of coupons.

Make nursery decorations yourself

Arrival of a baby is so exciting. We parents like to do all the best things to welcome the new baby. A DIY Baby Nursery is one of the ways to cut down initial expenses. Instead of hiring someone to arrange the baby nursery, you can simply do it yourself. We decorated our baby nursery using interesting baby stuff and it didn’t cost much. At the end, it is completely interesting to decorate our own nursery to welcome the baby.

Artisan State Photo Book Review (Zno Photo book Review)

Update:Now this photo book company is called as Zno.If you are looking for Zno Photo book review,still this review is valid as both are the same companies.(Only a name change) This Zno Photo Book review also features Zno Layflat, 20 pages, 6×8, hard photo cover book.which I bought for $5 trial offer.

I really like making photo books for my son’s events. With my experiences so far, I found that photo books are durable and a quality way to keep photo memories in one place than creating an album with printed photos.

Zno Photo book Review

Earlier I created photo books with montage and Blurb. If you read my reviews on Montage Photo Book which I made for his 1st year memories and the Blurb Photo Book review for his first month, you’ll see how much I am into creating photo memories. I know most moms love to be creative with their kids.

Now my son is going to be 2 years old and for me it is so fast. I still remember his 1st birthday party. Suddenly when it is time for planning his 2nd birthday, I found I still haven’t created a photo album for his 1st Birthday.

Finally, I ended up creating a photo book for his first birthday with Artisan State. Actually I searched on Google for photo books and found Artisan State. I also found that they have a good offer these days. That is for new customers, they can order their first photo book for just $5.Quite a bargain price, right? If not, their usual price starts from $30.Another interesting thing is their shipping charges. It is only $5!

So, here is my Artisan State Photo Book Review which I only paid $10 including shipping charges.(Also read our Mixbook Photo Book Review)

(Disclaimer: This is not a free product for me. I paid $10 for both book and the shipping cost. This post is entirely to share my experience and about the offer with others who read this post)

The offer price applied to a Layflat, 20 pages, 6×8, hard photo cover book. There are other items also available for $5 trial offer such as Little Black Book and Wood Custom Frame.

For birthday photo album, 20 pages are just fine. Their software is easier to use and there are several page layout options. So, I could arrange photos in different styles.

In first two pages, I used 10 photos which show the details and decorations of the party. Actually I expected to see very small and unclear images in the photo book. But once I received this book, I found very clear images even those are very small.

Other than that, photos are very clear and neat. Layflat option makes it easy to go through the book. Each page is thick enough and seems these are durable.
Overall, I really like with this Photo book purchase. If you are looking for making a photo book, why don’t you try their $5 trial offer? (for a limited time period)

How to Save Money from your photo books?

Here are some of my tips on how to save money or how to buy photo books for really cheap rate.

Once you visit your photo book company,sign up with them and start creating your photo book.If you are in rush ordering your photo book,then search in Google for coupons and promo codes for the said company which you created a photo book.

If you can wait for about 1-2 weeks,then you may able to earn more than 50% discounts in most of the time.

When you sign up with Newsletter ,you will receive their deals and coupons daily.Grab the best deal and order your photo book for really a bargain price.

Just imagine creating a quality and large size photo book for around $30,but ordering the same book for $15!That sounds great when the book is larger and when you have enough space for all your photos with attractive layouts!

I do this all time.

How about you?Do you create photo books for family events?
