Learn how to save more on toys and decor, family vacations and food shopping.

“Kids grow like weeds so I do my best to consign what I can. I’ve found a few great consignment places that take better brands in good condition and give you cash on the spot, so no waiting on checks. My favorite spot is Once Upon a Child in Fairfield.”

“I tend to wait ’til the end of each season and gather all the discounted items and apparel. I size up for the kids to ensure the clothes fit next season.”

“Find local swap sites on Facebook. Most towns have a swap and sell or garage sale Facebook group where you can purchase items for kids that are gently used for great prices. You can also sell some of your own gently used toys or kids’ clothing. A recent find I had was ‘like new’ winter boots for my daughter for $5! Not bad when I know how quickly she’ll grow out of them.”

—Stephanie Caruso, Bernardsville

"I save money on eyeglasses by using zennioptical.com. They're inexpensive and I can afford to have a new pair practically every day. Compared to other retail brick-and-mortar stores, I have saved more than $200 on the exact same pair of frames that I love."

—Jonel Stanek, Clifton
