Childcare Expenses

Thanks to Olga Quinn

Woohoo! We are finally done paying for childcare! This May marks the end of basically 14 years of paying for childcare for someone. Starting in August, our youngest will be in Kindergarten and our days of paying for preschool and daycare will be over! Hooray! It is going to feel like a huge raise to not have to pay out that much every month. Childcare is so expensive! It was basically the same as our mortgage, and I’m not even kidding. It is going to be great having that money and being able to use it for other expenses. Mostly we are going to work to build up our savings account, which is basically nonexistent, but we are also going to leave a little for splurging on things that we want. I’m researching DIRECTV Deals right now, and I’m thinking that would be a super fun way to spend a little money that we are going to have now that we don’t have to pay for childcare. This is going to be so very nice!
