It's all according to personal needs and what people like. Def if you love your humidifier great. I personally don't like them and when baby has a cold or is stuffed use the bathroom shower to make steam and if I want cool air then we go outside. When I was tight on funds I had to find alternatives to some things that were just conveniences.
I think overall you really have to look at your circumstances and sometimes think outside the box and get creative. You have to weigh out what you need to make your environment safe and comfortable but also what is really an affordable comfort.
My 'splash out' purchase so far was a Gro egg £21.99p from Argos... my friend really rated them and I do love it - its very cute.
Scarey thing is I always think our bedroom is SOOOOOOO cold and am always moaning to hubby about it being like a freezer but according to the grow egg it is perfect temp for baby (I am the same with the bath - couldn't believe the baby bath thermometer said it was hot when I thought it was luke warm... was testing that out too its fab! £1 from poundland!) So I know my body temp is off and so I can't be trusted to work out temps so am very glad I got the groegg and the bath thingy!
I think I should add that vest/body extenders have been really necessary for my LO since he has such chubby thighs. None of his cloths would fit if I didn't have them! Also, a wet bag is awesome. We cloth diaper so it's a must for us but think of all those times when thy spill a mug of water or throw up on you or themselves. You'll be happy you had a water proof bag to store it in until you get home!
