5 Ways to Save Money Raising Kids



When baby makes three, you have a lot of big decisions to make, and one of the first is whether or not to breastfeed. This is a bit of a controversial topic, so we'll skip the pros and cons in lieu of discussing the financial aspects of breastfeeding. Beyond the fact that you'll save money on not buying formula, babies who are breastfed are less likely to need medical care than their peers who are formula fed, so you also save on doctor's visits and medications. Also, breastfed tots can be introduced to solid foods later than their formula-fed counterparts, meaning savings on your grocery bill -- for a little while, at least.
