As you prepare for your twins and stock up on the necessary twin baby gear, you will be spending lots of money.
You need to find discounts.
There are some baby gear items that you will have to buy a pair of for use by your twins.
These include car seats, cribs, high chairs, playpens, and baby carriers (like a BabyBjorn), among others.
For example, we bought our car seats for the twins from Babies R Us (unfortunately, now out of business). They gave us a “twin discount” of 10% off since we bought two of the same thing. Other stores may also give you this deal too.
Remember: it never hurts to ask.
If you are shopping at a smaller, local business, you may even have better luck since you’re more likely to garner sympathy from the more attentive business owner or store employee.
Get into the mindset when buying baby gear for your twins: “how can I get a discount on this?”
To get started, here is a great list of freebies and discounts for twins.
