When I had my first baby, I used these tips - they work like a charm!

Baby Meals:

I used an ordinary-sized coffee mug to keep the baby's cereal warm.
Plus, it has a handle so you can feed the baby with ease.

After you are done, rinse out and fill with a cup of coffee.

Toy blocks:

Why not use paper cups?

Stack them, sort them, pile them up, build a castle!

When the baby is finished playing, the cups are cheap to replace too.

Laundry Drying:

If you're low on cash and do your own laundry, an extra shower rod placed in the middle of shower stall works awesome for drying clothes.

Just make sure a piece of cheap bath mat (rubber) is placed between wall and rod so it won't mess up the paint (something I wish I had done ahead of time.)

Thanks to Sarah Corinne for these Frugal Baby Tips!
