How Much Does a Nursery Cost to Set Up? Nursery Furniture Costs

A list of nursery necessities is almost as difficult to nail down as the answer to the question of how much does a nursery cost. Why is this?

Let's use a big ticket item like the crib once again as an example. Some parents co-sleep making the purchase of a bassinet, a crib, crib mattress and even a baby bedding set completely unnecessary! What one mom and dad consider a nursery essential another may consider a waste of space and cash.

Make a List

That is the primary reason that I am an obsessive compulsive list-maker and recommend that before you start decorating the nursery that you become one as well. After you carefully compile a list of the items that fit your space and your needs and price them online making comparisons; the answer to the question, "how much does a nursery cost to set up" will be right there so that you can budget accordingly.

I hope that visitors to Unique Baby Gear Ideas picked up some tips for calculating a nursery budget and that you will visit other areas of my website to see examples of how a little ingenuity, a DIY attitude and hard work can save lots of cash.
