We Were (Cash) Poor for a Month, and it was Terrifying

I've been very fortunate to never have to worry about money in my life.

I'm also tired of creating new accounts with anyone, especially ones that have my financial information.

How Much Kids Cost - The First Year

I've been meaning to write this post for a while, but it just keeps falling through the cracks. I know it's been a while because this post is about Frugal Babe's first year, and she's almost two now.

We tracked our baby-related expenses for the first year (we stopped after a year because expenses dropped off quite a bit and it was getting annoying) to see exactly what having a baby did to our finances.
