Now that you are pregnant you are probably dreaming of decorating your new baby's
room, but then realize that it could cost you a fortune. There are so many pieces of
furniture to consider, bedding, accessories and more!
Here are 5 tips on how to decorate a baby room on a budget:
1. Paint the room a neutral color if you plan on using it for another purpose in
the future. My husband and I had planned for this bedroom to be my office, but
when we found out we were expecting we realized it would have to be a nursery.
We plan on having our 2 girls share a bedroom when they are older, so it only made
sense to paint it one time. We chose a neutral color, that way when it becomes an
office we don't have to repaint.
Now that school has started, school pictures will be taken soon at every school
across the county. Plus, the holidays are going to be here soon. What grandparent wouldn't love
a picture of the grandkids? Maybe you like having a family picture taken every year for yourself.
New families love having pictures taken of their new baby. But babies grow so fast in the
first two years, you need a picture every couple of months to keep up with the changes.
The only problem is school pictures or professional pictures taken in a studio can be very
expensive. So why not get a free picture. A few places offer pictures for free--no session or
sitting fees either! Others offer free photos in addition to a package bought.
Make your appointments today and stop handing over tons of cash!
forget to print your coupons and bring them with you when you get your pictures taken!
Summer is here, but sometimes the weather isn't always so nice. You can keep the kids occupied on rainy
days with all the free printables available. Kids will love coloring their favorite characters! There
is even a printable from Disney where you can place your child into the story.
Chuck E. Cheese has a printable rewards calendar you can use for summer chores.
Fisher Price has printable greeting cards for kids to color. You have a lot
to choose from: Cars 2, My Little Pony, Kung Fu Panda, Ratatouille, Yo Gabba Gabba and more.
Make sure you have plenty of ink and paper so you can start printing!
If you've got children or are thinking about having children,
unarguably one of the biggest expenses that comes along with them
is diapers. There's really no way around it. Cloth
diapering has evolved over the past ten years or so and is now much
easier than it used to be with the cotton diapers, safety pins and
plastic pants covers. There are many new cloth diapering
options that can help you save money and reduce your household
Here are some of the cloth diapering systems available.
Abercrombie Kids, a clothing line marketed to children ages 7-14, recently began selling a "push-up" bikini top. Needless to say, many people were disgusted. Thanks to the power of the Internet, it only took a few days for Abercrombie to change the name of the bikini to "padded," although that doesn't seem much better to me.
