Financial Statement – April

To all those people who think having a kid is very expensive.. it is just not true (in Europe)! Yes, there are a few things which are expensive and you need to spend money on (stroller, crib, baby monitor, etc) but apart from that there are so many cheap and cute options for baby clothes! I also use cloth diapers so basically I have spend 250 Euros initially and that is it! Also, the truth is you end up going out much less, which means less money spent on dinners/cinema/etc + gifts from family and friends + not falling into the trap of thinking you need to buy everything baby related = savings
