How to Save up for an AG Doll

  Hey guys! Today I will be giving you some tips on saving up for an American Girl Doll, or anything else! :) Also, Lea's new name is Sylvie! Let's get started!

1. Offer Services
There are many different services that you can do to earn some money, such as: baby sitting, pet sitting, or mowing a neighbors lawn.

 
2. Sell old clothes and toys
 
Selling old stuff at a garage sale, online, etc is a great way to not only declutter, but you can also make a good amount of money!

3. Open an etsy shop 
If you are good at sewing, polymer clay, making jewlery, etc you can open an etsy shop (or any other online store) and sell your stuff! This is a great way to earn some money, while doing something you enjoy. :)


 I hope this helped! :)

  1. Yay! You're back! :) Thanks for all the great tips!! We are currently saving up for Kit, Maryellen, Lea and Julie. Actually I really want Kit and Julie, and my daughter really wants Lea and Maryellen. :) Decisions!!! We received Caroline for Christmas, and my daughter purchased Rebecca with her own money. She also received Grace for her birthday last year.

  4. I actually decided like years ago that I did not like AG dolls
    1) They are crazy expensive-and not everybody is that rich to be a doll collector
    2)Unless you have a popular blog or channel, what are you gonna do with them? (Besides doing their hair and dressing them in clothes)
    3)I think that the whole AG collection is cute, and when I got my first AG doll like, after 2 months all I did was stare at it. Because really I was bored of putting on new clothes, brushing their hair etc.
    4)A lot of electronic devices cost less than that doll!
    Though I have this crazy grudge against AG dolls, I still love ur blog, it's awesome!

    1. I totally understand the price issue. I live in Canada, and with the exchange rate and shipping we can't afford to buy AG items. Although we do save up to purchase AG dolls, and sometimes we find really good deals on eBay, we mostly enjoy crafting items and sewing clothing for the dolls. I like to create things for my blog, and my daughter is starting to take an interest in crafting items from the historical doll stories now that she is starting to read a lot better.

      It seems that once you know the doll's stories, the doll becomes a bit more like a person. You can also join blog communities like this one, and get to know so many other great people who have a passion for collecting and making doll things. Like I said, we only ever craft/thrift our doll things because we can't afford to buy new, but it's actually been a lot more fun that way! :)
