MM: Newborn Baby and Saving Money
We are still very early on in my first pregnancy and I am hesitant to plan too much until it's further along given my past experience, but I still want to start thinking about things.
We have done some basics like paid off our student loans, saved up our OOP max for healthcare via my HSA and have an additional $2,000 for startup costs (nursery, diapers, etc). But I am wondering what tips and tricks some of your MM'ers learned in your first year with a child that helped you save money or things that you wasted money on and wish you hadn't.
Would love to hear any advice you can share and thanks in advance!
