Tesco launches 50% off baby sale on big brands including Johnson’s and Pampers
Tesco has launched a baby sale – and it includes half price products across dozens of childcare essentials.
The grocer has started its annual ‘baby event’ with 50% off nappies, moisturisers and even baby food products.
Over the next week, discounts will be online and in stores to help parents cash in on sales on everyday items – with big brands such as Pampers, Huggies and Johnson’s also included.
Online shoppers will find two pages of reduced items – including 50% off a pack of 50 Pampers nappies, now £4 from the £8 RRP.
If your child’s going through baby wipes like there’s no tomorrow, you can also get a 56 pack of Johnson’s baby wipes for 65p instead of £1.30 – or the same deal on sensitive ones.
Other items on offer include Ella’s Kitchen baby food pouches and Dove body lotions. One of the biggest highlights though is this Avent Classic Newborn Starter Set which is down to £14 from £28.
The sale lasts until July 31 and is available online and in stores.
New mum shares bargain tips to save money
Back in May we spoke to mum-to-be Rose Tolson on how she’s preparing for her first child’s arrival. Here are the tips she shared plus a few extra ones – that hopefully you can follow, too.
Make a baby wish list – Rose used Amazon for her baby shower which meant friends and family could contribute towards the most urgent essentials. It can also be super handy for birthday presents.
Rummage through the sales – Mothercare is great and you can get big discounts on equipment, too. It also has a popular baby club that gives parents money off coupons, 20% off maternity clothing, and even GP advice for free.
It’s worth signing up to as many more free mother and baby sites as you can, including Asda’s baby & toddler one and Boots’ parenting club – see all of the groups we think are worth joining, here.
Discount code websites such as Groupon and HotUKDeals are also useful for keeping an eye on promotions.
Try eBay – Rose bought a brand new second hand chicco ohlala lightweight pram for £40 including delivery (RRP £100). We’ve got plenty of tips on how to scout out eBay bargains here – don’t forget to check out eBay’s online outlet, too.
For nappies, the BumDeal App lets you find the cheapest nappy in the size you need, and you can search by brand too. It’s also worth signing up to brand/retailer newsletters to stay up-to-date with their latest offers. See more tips in our cheap nappies guide. You can also use grocery comparison website mySupermarket.com to see how much they cost at your chosen supermarket – and if you can save money by shopping elsewhere.
Expert tips to stay on top of your budget as a new parent
Consumer money expert at TopCashback , Natasha Rachel Smith, has shared some extra budgeting tips for parents.
Start a stockpile but be clever about the items you pick up. Instead of buying clothes, bulk buy nappies, wipes and washing powder when it is on offer as you’ll never have too many.
You may get excited and want to buy everything new for when your baby arrives, but it will be kinder on your wallet to except freebies.
Borrowing baby stuff from friends and family will help keep your costs down. Signing up to websites like Freecycle which allow communities to share unwanted items, and magicfreebiesuk.co.uk which give away samples, can also reap rewards.
Buy second-hand – looking on websites like Gumtree or eBay are great for things like pushchairs and cots.
It’s often parents who have got a year or so out of the items and need the cash back. Just be sure to check that all the items are in good condition and are working properly.
Don’t go crazy on clothes – not only will your little one grow so fast that cupboards full of new born clothes will go to waste, clothes are also a popular gift so you may find you’ll have more than enough once the little one is born.
Research what you’ll need – from nappy bins and fancy changing tables to special baby washing powder, lots of items that you are told you’ll need as a parent can be a false economy.
Simply use free-from-perfume washing powder and buy a changing mat that can be used anywhere rather than in just one room.
