Dad tip #17: Why buy Carter's baby clothes at Macy's when you can get them at BJ's?

Carter's makes some some pretty decent baby clothes. But on the whole, I'd rather pay $5 for a pair of PJs instead of $15 -- particularly when the clothes use about as much fabric as a glorified handkerchief and are likely to be outgrown within a few weeks.

I figured I'd make this post a quick hit and warn people away from purchasing Carter's baby clothes from department stores like Sears and Macy's and instead consider places like BJ's and Carter's Outlet. You can literally buy three times as much clothes for the same price.

As a side note, Carter's Web site is just about the worst one I can remember seeing from a publicly traded company. Maybe that's why their stock price is worth about half of what it was a year ago.

Also worth a nod are places like TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Great brands at low prices. Commercial moment over.

Why shop in stores when it's garage sale season? I just picked up some onesies for a quarter each and they look brand new. The kid probably outgrew them after the first wearing. And no, Steve, no need to panic. They aren't for me, they're for a friend. I'm just holding them for her :)
