Your bundle of joy does not have to cost a bundle, but the minute you start showing a bump, becoming budget conscious suddenly bumps into the top of your priorities.
There are small ways that make a big difference you can include in your budget. If you have no idea where to start, these five tips will help you save money before you have your baby.
