The 'Pretty Woman' actress - who is expecting her third child with cameraman husband Danny Moder in the autumn – is determined to be more frugal after splashing out when twins Phinnaeus and Hazel were born in November 2004.
A source is quoted by Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Julia spent a lot when the twins were born.
"She kept most of what she needed from Phinnaeus and Hazel. The rest she picked up from friends and she has even been in a few charity shops
I know I use a lot of hand me downs and when my boys were born, alot of people gave their kids old clothes as well I used my oldest sons. I spent a lot of time in my local twins resale shop.
I tend to buy higher qualify stuff for my oldest because I know 2-3 kids will be wearing the clothes.
