Little Kids Shoes - Worth the Money?

Hi My son is almost 4yrs old. I have purchased most of his shoes from Target or Wal-Mart in the past. Recently a mom was talking about how bad it is for your kids developing feet to buy 'cheap' shoes. My son's feet are growing so I have looked at 'Stride-Rite', Crocs, Timberland etc and I'm finding it hard to justify $45 or more for a pair of shoes for a 4yr old. Do you buy 'better quality shoes' (?) for your kids and if so what brands do you recommend please?

Baby Budget - NEED NUMBERS!

We have a 1 week old baby! (Yay, I know - - - I'm overjoyed) But we're also going through a bit of a financial crisis at the same time so we are going through a financial counselor. He wants us to itemize out EVERYTHING & I mean EVERYTHING, for a month to get an average. I know that a newborn differs from a 6 month old & a 6month old differs from a 12 month old so let's compare. What do you spend & on WHAT exactly? How much on diapers? Formula? If not formula - how much on baby food? Clothes? Medicines Lotions/baby baths/etc...

Looking for the BEST Diaper Bag

Anyone just love their diaper bag? I am looking for something that has lots of compartments and just works! I have an Eddie Bauer Weekender bag, it's alright and I have a Carters suede diaper bag. They serve their purpose, but I want something that is just great. I have 2 little boys, 3.5 yo and 1.5 yo and I have another baby on the way. I want something that will serve all 3! Thanks for any recommendations!

Costco Worth It?

What is really worth buying at Costco? We'd be interested in products for babies and kids, as well as food. I don't have time to stand there with a calculator. I can barely manage the 3 kids in the carts that (yeah!) seat three. We're new members and I want to choose the right items and actually save money. Also, they don't seem to carry Pampers, just Huggies, but Pampers were my favorite.
