Your baby’s nursery should be a calming retreat where you can bond and lull your little one to sleep, but that doesn’t mean it needs to cost a fortune. Save the money for items you’ll really need like diapers and wipes (although, the cloth options would help save there, too!).
Once you decide on a theme for the baby’s room, think about how you can decorate it on a dime. The room will only be a nursery for a short while.
