Save money when you rent toys instead of buying them.
I spent a fortune on new toys for my kids at Christmas ... only for them to stop playing with them by mid-January.
BabyPlays is a toy-rental service that works kind of like Netflix. You set up a toy wishlist, they send you the toys, you keep them as long as you want and then send them back in pre-paid envelopes. Then they send you new toys. At first I thought it was kind of icky for my kids to play with rented toys, but BabyPlays sanitizes everything and even sends them in shrink-wrapped dust-free packaging. Now whenever my son begs for a new toy, I put it on his Baby Plays wishlist and I don't have to buy a new car every time I go to the grocery store!
