Raising a child is not easy. If you have to deal with the expenses head on, you can expect to spend $222,360 from birth to age 18 (NY Times, 2010). We’re all aware these numbers have increased since the last recession and it may get worse before your little one is here.
Plan Early for Expenses
Search for the best children’s clothes early. You may run into deals at baby stores during the prime of your pregnancy and find deals worth taking a risk on. After you learn the gender of your child, make a plan on how to shop for the best deals online and in stores. Start saving at least 10-15% of your salary to prepare for the costs to manage a newborn and prepare for unexpected events.
