One of the things that people always think when they're pregnant with twins is that they are going to need two of everything to stock their nursery. While you do need two of a lot of things, you don't need to do it all at once. You don't even need two cribs right at the beginning. Your babies can sleep in one crib until they begin to roll over and if you really want to purchase two cribs at once that's fine, but you'll still only be using one. In addition to cribs, you're not going to find that your babies are interested in using the same toy at the same time for a long time, so you really can save some money by just buying one swing, one jumper, and rotate the babies, let them take turns with it. The definitely don't need two of everything.
