First, you need a budget. Set a realistic budget that you can afford to spend on your baby’s nursery. This could be a lump sum or an amount every month until the birth.
Decide on the expensive items, like furniture, that you absolutely have to have – you can make do without some of the fancier gadgets and decor for now, but a crib is not negotiable!
Shop around to find the best deals on the items you have to have, like furniture, prams and car seats.
If you haven’t already decided on a theme, do so. Once you have decided on the theme, you can go about buying decor items and other accessories.
Of course, this seems like a very logical way to buy all the things you need for a safe and fun nursery for your baby. Be warned, however, a trip to a baby store is like a bombardment of cute! Make sure you go with a definite list, or you may find your budget disappearing before you know it!
