BEFORE welcoming your new baby, you might think you have enough stuff – but trust us, you're always going to need more baby grows, nappies and toys.
That said, it can get pricey VERY quickly – which is why we're always looking for ways to save some pennies.
Enter Holly Smith: a soon-to-be mum-of-four and bargain hunter who set up the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.
Earlier this week, Holly posted a video on her YouTube channel where she revealed how she bagged £500 of baby products for just £112 with a little-known Argos shopping hack.
Through the company Marthill, Holly bought a pallet containing untested returns from Argos – and all she knew when she bid on it was that it contained nursery supplies.
When it arrived, the £112 box was so huge that Holly and her partner Callum had to unbox it outside their home in Norfolk.
As Callum ripped into the box, Holly admitted: "I'm really nervous because this a returns pallet – so it could be items people have returned just because they didn't want them.
"Or, they could be faulty items."
Fortunately, Holly's box contained plenty of goodies that were a fraction of their usual price – including an £140 Cuggl pram, two SmarTrike £40 bikes, and two £35 highchairs from My Babiie.
What's more, the pallet of returned items also included a £55 Cuggl travel cot with a slightly faulty leg and a £23 baby gate with a broken button that Holly was confident her dad could fix.
As for the kids, Holly bagged a £28 Philip the Dancing Hippo toy, £10 Rockit baby rocker and a £99 Cuggl baby swing – which had trouble standing up.
Holly continued: "We're going to have to test all this – it was a big risk but I have seen some people pay thousands for returns pallets and have a lot of junk.
"This was £112 so even if we got a couple items that are good quality, it's good and we haven't spent too much."
Last week, Holly shared secret baby websites where mums-to-be can get everything they need for free.
For more budget hacks, B&M has unveiled their epic range of kids’ outdoor toys – including trampoline for under £200 & £3 water guns.
And this thrifty shopper bagged 10 pairs of sandals from Sainsbury’s for just £1 each saving over £100.
Plus savvy shoppers are snapping up £10 evening gowns in the Dorothy Perkins mega sale & said they’re ideal for post-lockdown weddings.
