Alert! Parents take note, the cost of raising a child is over $240,000

kidsI happened to notice today that the US government released figures that say it now costs of $240,00 to raise a child from birth to age 18.

How does a parent cope with these astronomical costs?

I don’t know about you, but I am not spending anywhere near the amount that it says I “should” be, by cutting down on some of the costs that I CAN control. For example, using cloth diapers instead of disposables. The average cost of a ‘sposie to reach potty training is $803, where a full stash of cloth diapers is only $240. Imagine where else you could use that extra $563!

This is just one of the cost-saving tips that I teach in my course “How to Save Thousands During Your Baby’s 1st Year.” I am constantly looking new ways, and love to share these with others.
