Avoiding these items will save you money
What holds true for dressers is doubly true for bookshelves. While having a bookshelf on their scale might seem nice at first, it’s worth remembering that babies and their libraries grow at a breakneck speed. Eventually they’ll be too big for the cutesy bookshelf and their books will pile out of the case that can no longer accommodate them. As cute as the tiny bookshelves are, that’s a bad look.
Anzia recommends parents buy a taller bookshelf and use the empty shelves in the interceding years to display keepsakes and photos.
Let it go
Kids love cartoon characters. Every single one of us can probably point to a time that we were obsessed with some 2D fiction, and the same feeling is going to come for your child as well. However, when the time comes to make your kid’s room reflect their favorites, try to avoid buying the big furniture items with Lightning McQueen’s mug.
Anzia recommends going for pillows, blankets, and other easily replaceable items when accounting for your child’s tastes, so that you can quickly swap them out when they move on to something else.
