Cook At Home
It’s really tempting to use disposable dishes, utensils, and cups when you have toddlers running underfoot. You don’t have to spend time washing them, and what’s more, they can’t break and shatter all over the floor. However, despite the convenience, this expense can quickly add up. As a bonus, by avoiding disposable tableware you are also being more environmentally responsible!
Share a Babysitter
You don’t want to leave your toddler with just anyone so finding the right babysitter is paramount. However, if you and your partner both have a full work schedule this can be a very big expense. It may be worthwhile for you to coordinate with other families in your neighborhood to hire one babysitter that can watch over all your children. While you need to make sure the logistics are doable, this can cut your costs significantly.
Buy Life Insurance When You’re Young
Life insurance is a necessity for parents of toddlers — it’s essential that you protect your family’s financial security should disaster strike. But the longer you wait, the higher your rates are likely to be. By getting life insurance when you’re young you can make sure you pay lower premiums over the duration of the policy.
