Above we have chunky book from the dollar store and soft cubes from Target. Right: set of three pitchers ($6) from Ross and wooden spoons from China Town S.F. To the left we have $1.99 ruggs from IKEA rolled out to define the space the child will be working in. Below: $20 shelves from Walmart. . These are just my ideas, with Montessori you can really become creative as you will see when looking at blogs.
