How much money do you spend? Edited! !

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
How much money do you spend on your child/children kids teens a month just curious?

Do you think 350 would cover a teenager a month? It's a child support question? I have a 4year old and I don't spend that much a month for her but she's a toddler not a teen.

Same here. I am handing someone money for something every time I turn around.

Really that's not bad for 2 kids I would think more because diapers are expensive :)


Quoting AHmom103:

 About $250, for food, diapers, and gas to drive them around. That's for 2 kids.

Including food/ health insurance costs?

If not including those costs it's very little. We go clothes shopping when needed and don't buy extras. But she's 4. So no diapers and things like that.

Food $200/mo

Insurance for all of us is $500/mo

Minus things like mutual bills (gas, power, etc.) and groceries, which I don't really want to break down right now and don't really know the answer to that, not that much, we do clothes shopping twice a year, toys for Christmas and birthdays unless its something small, so for like events, little things, extra curriculars, about $20-50 a month per child. And $100 a month in their college accounts.

probably not much. there just aren't a lot of monthly expenses for the kids. obviously there are bdays, seasonal clothes shopping, etc, but i don't have child expenses every month (aside from food/water/electric).

 Lol, I only have 1 in diapers, we go through 2 big boxes a month, about $50 worth. My grocery bills are very low though because of how I cook. I only spend $300 every 2 weeks for groceries, diapers, gas, and cigarettes.
