Bolt your dressers, bookshelves, or any other tip-able furniture to the wall.

Secure to the floor or wall with L-braces, or to the wall with hook and eye - available at any hardware store.

From the photo: This is why we have small bookcases or hidden wall supports.

Goodness knows, if the supports were technically able to be lower, she'd probably sabotage them.

Thanks to Teresa for this Frugal Baby Tip!

About Catherine: I have been writing my Frugal Baby Tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three grown up sons, and a grandma - and happily married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a rescue cat, Bella.

Taking care of baby and mom needs naturally, does not have to cost a whole lot of money! Money-saving tips on diapering, diaper washing, safety, sling and baby carriers, toys, clothing, nursing, menstrual needs, traveling with kids, and more!
