Caring for a child is the most rewarding thing that has ever happened to me. It might have drained my family’s savings yet it has filled us with so much love. It is said that the best things in life are those that are free, yet caring for a baby isn’t cheap. So unless you are living somewhere in a far-flung jungle, no matter how much you had saved up, budgeting will always be a struggle.
Shopping for a baby is physically daunting and is equally draining to the wallet. Unless you have deep pockets or have a frugal friend who can guide you, you’ll need a bit of help and advice somewhere. It is unwise to wallow in debt and worry so let me help you based on my personal experience. Been there, done that; budgeting isn’t easy. Yet with a little bit of planning and some wise choices along the way, you can balance your expenses and have one less thing to worry.
