First: Congratulations! Second: How Much?!?
Money Matters Monday KNOWSY Readers, can you believe it? Back to school is already upon us, everywhere you go, you see parents with kids in tow at all of your area shopping locations buying all the supplies and clothes (unless the kids are enrolled in a private/parochial school, such as I was: St. Mary's School and St. Bernard High School who wore uniforms all those years - although nowadays more public schools are starting to allow uniforms, which can be bought in big box stores). Last week I posted an article with "calculators" for different calculations in regards to budgeting, this week continuing the topic of just "How Much Does It Cost to Raise A Kid" this article comes from one of my go to sites: huffingtonpost.com and was written by Emily Thomas, when you get to the end of the article you will see a link to "calculate" the cost for raising your child/children via the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
