When you add up all the things you’ll need to complete your baby’s nursery room, it can be quite expensive. If you’re on a tight budget, here are some ideas and options that can help you save on the basic things you’ll need.


Skip A Traditional Crib

No doubt, a baby crib is one of the most important pieces of furniture you’ll need in your baby’s nursery but it can be very expensive. A traditional baby crib can cost over $300. If you want to save money, opt for a mini portable crib or a bassinet which can run for $150 or less.



Nursery Chair Under $100

A nursery glider chair or a breastfeeding chair is a piece of furniture that’s in most nurseries because mom’s need to feel comfortable while breastfeeding their babies. But gliders can cost nearly $700 or more. Thankfully, there are inexpensive options for just under $100 that you can find at Walmart like this Windsor glider currently for $99.98 linked below.

Seating Cushions

If you’re not looking to spend that much money on a chair, you can use a chair you already own and add a chair cushion set on it. You can easily find a set online for under $40. A free alternative is to use extra pillows you may have at home to support your back while breast feeding on a chair.

Dresser Under $60

Another important thing that you will need for your baby’s nursery is a dresser to put your baby’s clothes in. Dressers can be pricey but there are inexpensive options like the fabric and wooden top dressers. These types of dressers can be purchased for under $60 and they come in many different colors.



Changing Table

A changing table is another piece of furniture that you may want to include in your baby’s nursery. A changing table can cost close to $100 but there are cheaper changing tables on Amazon for under $100 or you can find changing tables for under $30 on online second-hand stores like Mercari or on Facebook Marketplace.  Another option is to just purchase a changing pad that you can lay over your bed to change your baby. Changing pads are very inexpensive and they are also easy to pack into your baby’s backpack.
