Frugal Forum February 24, 2013

It is expensive to be a parent! The United States Department of Agriculture states that middle income parents of a child born in 2011 can expect to spend about $234,900 for food, shelter, and other necessities to raise their child over the next 17 years. To cut your dining out budget choose a restaurant on a special kids night where you can receive a free kids meal or a reduced priced meal usually with the purchase of an adult entrée. It will be a nice treat for everyone and you will save money plus some restaurants even have entertainment for your child.
