Raising Kids Is Getting More Expensive
Most of us would agree that kids are priceless, but the United States Department of Agriculture has actually given them a price, as part of their annual survey of expenditures on children by families. Overall, the average American can expect to spend $226,920 to raise one child to the age of 18 -- with most of that being spent on feeding and providing child care.
I thought having pets was expensive! I just calculated how much it would be for me to have one kid and raise them until they're 18. A whopping total of $194,634!!!
