While my baby will always be a “baby,” I’ve decided to roll with the times and name this year’s posts more appropriately with my son’s “upgrade” to toddlerhood.
Not much else has changed this month. You know the drill; here are the expenses for the month:
|Type of Expense||This Month||Average|
|Health & Wellness||$102||$108|
|Diapers and Wipes||$47||$43|
|Toys and Books||$15||$12|
|Food & Supplies||$30||$16|
There are a few things I should point out about this month:
- Nearly every category is in line with monthly averages, which is anything but average. But I credit this to our purchasing habits, since we understand roughly how much we want or need to spend in each area per month.
- Food & feeding supplies continue to be above-average. Like I mentioned last month, as our little one transitions from “free” breast milk to real food, this cost will continue to climb. Did I mention he eats like a vacuum?
The month as a whole was surprisingly uneventful, so I don’t have much more to report. Instead, I have a question for you guys—what else would you like to see in these monthly reports that would be helpful for your own financial situation? It can be baby-related or something else altogether. Let me know in the comments or send me an email! I love getting good feedback from you.
