In celebration of moms this Mother’s Day, one of my favorite online retailer's, zulily.com is honoring new moms nationwide by taking a closer look at something we can all relate to –budgeting for all things baby!
Here are some survey insights they found regarding spending and saving habits when preparing for baby:
- With annual childcare costs hovering around $6,000, it’s crucial to choose (and pay!) the right person to watch your kids. In our survey Julia Roberts was voted the top celeb moms would let babysit, but Kim Kardashian didn’t make the cut and was only selected by 3% of respondents.
- Raising kids can get pretty pricey, so it’s no surprise a third of mothers surveyed said they’d compete in a monthly random dance battle (32%) in exchange for free baby gear, attire, etc.
- Almost half of mothers surveyed (45%) said the most missed pre-mom indulgence is actually having a day off.
- 33% of moms agreed that the most common squabble couples have regarding new parenting is about money.
I love the fabulous deals I find on zulily and love that they are dedicated to bringing moms like you and me deals for a new baby and the whole family no matter how old your kids are! Whether I'm looking for the latest fashions, home goods or a fun baby shower gift, zulily has it all and I love their affordable prices!
