Frugal First Communion Dress

I know these pictures are pretty small -- sorry about that! I just wanted to show that you can find a BEAUTIFUL dress for a child's First Communion or a wedding or Easter or Christmas by looking on eBay. I got to thinking that I would need to buy my oldest daughter a dress for her First Communion next year and I thought I'd start looking at the end of the season when they go on sale. I found out these dresses retail for anywhere from $80 to $120 and sometimes even more! I can't imagine spending that much on a dress for just one day for my 7 year old. I found this dress on eBay for only $25 including shipping! The best part is that all of my daughters will be able to wear it when it comes time for their First Communions -- sort of like a family heirloom baptismal gown!

This morning I read on Money Saving Mom about a great idea -- renting dresses and suits for your little ones! Check out for more information. Many of the ladies over at Money Saving Mom said they had used this company with great results. It sounds like a great idea!

When I clicked on the gagas link it appears that they are out of business.

That stinks! They looked like a great option for dresses for special occasions.
