I have worn out my welcome on my husbands side of the closet (plus he keeps custting the sleeves off of his shirts) and I only have like one pair of normal pair or pants that fit me right now. Iam on a fixed budget and I am in need of some maternity clothes that I do not look frumpy in. This is my last pregnancy and I want to be comfortable Since I live in AZ. If anyone knows of anyone that is getting rid of or know of a really really really cheap place to get some clothes I would love it. I have tried freecycle and craigslist but right now it is hard to find clothes my size on mothers that are not still using them. I appreciate it very much. thank you

What can I do next?

Try Small Change on Lincoln and Scottsdale. Their selection isn't huge, but they do have some cute things. Like several of the people who have already responded to you, I went on to Ebay and found some reasonably priced things, too. Good Luck!

Some children's exchange stores have maternity clothes as well like "Once Upon A Child" They are located @ Baseline and Val Vista (I do believe). There are a couple of other nice exchange stores around.
I also found great deals on Maternity wear at JCPenney's Outlet Store located in Arizona Mills. some of the other stores in there may also have great deals on Maternity like the Old Navy Outlet.

Congrats on your baby and good luck on your maternity search.

Hi,
I shopped at Ross for my cloths. They have a pretty good selection and really good prices. You can get cute shirts and pants for under $10.00. Garage sales are another place. Go to AZcentral.com under classified, then yard sales. Look up sales with maternity wear and baby stuff, you can usually find stuff. Also you might want to try Once upon a Child stores or Savers. Good luck.

Target has a maternity section with reasonably priced clothing. You could also try Goodwill. That is where I took my maternity clothes after my son was born. Places like Kohls Sears, and JC Penney also run frequent sales on their clothes and they will give you an extra discount if you are willing to apply for a credit card (they'll even let you pay it off right there in the store). I also shopped the clearance rack at Motherhood Maternity when I was pregnant. Some of the items were actually quite reasonable.

Actually, Once Upon a Child on Val Vista and Baseline no longer has maternity clothes. However, the Once Upon a Child on Alma School and Warner does.

When I was pregnant with my last child, money was a little tight. I purchased one maternity white tank top, that I wore underneath all my pre-pregnancy shirts. It covered my belly and looked stylish with the whole 'layered' look. Good luck. I wish I still had my maternity clothes.

I sold my maternitywear on E-Bay in a "lot". Try there for used.

I bought most of them at oldnavy.com in the clearance section.

Being plus size to begin with, I had a lot of trouble finding reasonably priced materinty clothes. I had a some luck with ebay...you can get outfits in "lots" that cost much less than in the stores! Ross sometimes has some reasonable prices too.

Hello R.!

Have you tried the used childrens clothing stores? I know that I see maternity clothes in places like Once Upon A Child. I have no idea what they sell for, but it's worth looking into!

R.-

Have you looked at Once Upon a Child stores? They have a ton of second hand maternity clothes, baby clothes, toys, shoes and lots of other stuff. I know there are two locations in the EV. I believe there is another on the west side too. There is another store called Second Go Round at the corner of Alma School and Guadalupe(EV). I got some cute maternity clothes at these places and I buy most of my daughter's clothes there as well. When they have a tendency to pee, poop and puke on them, I feel just fine with buying second hand clothes that are in great condition and still name brand.

Old Navy sales and eBay are good. Also try "My Sister's Closet" companion, something like Change? It's off McDonald and Scottsdale Rd.

Not sure where you are located at but have you tried Other Mothers? It's a consignment store. They inspect all the incoming used items and will only take clothes and stuff if in good condition. You can find lots of clothes there at much cheaper prices than even Wal-Mart. And you can trade them all in after your done and get paid for them. Good Luck
