Toddler Bargains: Secrets to Saving 20% to 50% on Toddler Furniture, Clothing, Shoes, Travel Gear, Toys, and More!by Denise Fields, Alan Fields
The terrible twos? Make that the terrible two-thousands. On average, it takes $2,000 per year to raise a toddler, which makes bargain hunting with an eye for quality a necessity. In this follow-up to their best-selling Baby Bargains, Denise and Alan Fields point parents of toddlers to the best deals. Topics include decor on a shoestring; ten ways to avoid wasting money on clothes; reviews and ratings of booster seats; reviews of name-brand potty seats and other toilet-training aids; the truth about "toddler meals" and where to eat out with children; great deals on strollers, bike helmets, carriers, and other on-the-go gear; toy, book, and CDROM recommendations by age; finding the right preschool, toddler classes, and swimming lessons; tips for family vacations (and how to survive them); and more. Illustrations throughout add to this wealth of information.
