Thanks to Renata for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Tip #1 - Use a laundry basket for baby's toys. It will fit right under your baby's crib.

Tip #2 - Use coloured construction paper (or black, depending on baby's age) and cut shapes out. Put on the wall around baby's change table. Helps to distract baby a bit. Use putty adhesive, so you don't damage the wall. Move shapes around once in a while. Plastic pocket mirrors work better for older babies.
