Save your crib mattress to create a reading nook

As my kids have grown, we’ve been lucky to always have someone who was in need of the mattresses and bed frames they were leaving behind. (In fact, just last month, our old toddler beds were picked up by a couple who was adopting FIVE children!)  If that wasn’t the case, however, I think holding on to the crib mattress to use for a reading nook is a brilliant move.
