Ask the Readers: How Much Does it Cost to Raise a Family? (Chance to Win!)
Those of you with kids are probably feeling the recession the hardest. In fact, many people are putting off having kids in the recession because of the "costs" involved with feeding, clothing, and gifting to a child.
Our good friend, Kimberly Palmer, understands what those who want to be financially secure may not be aware of the expenses of raising a family. She's addressed this issue (along with several other worhty topics) in her new book "Generation Earn"
In her new book, she addresses the following topics:
- What should I be doing with my savings?
- Should I take on freelance jobs?
- Where should I invest my money?
- Should I buy a house or keep renting?
- Does it make sense to share a mortgage with my significant other?
- Can I afford a baby?
- Should I start a nonprofit?
- How can I support the causes I believe in?
We want to know. What does it take to raise a family in a financially-secure way these days? If you share your tips or experiences, you'll be entered to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card and one copy of Kimberly's new book! (And don't forget to join us this Thursday at 4pm CST for our weekly Tweet chat! We'll have a chance to talk with Kimberly about the cost of raising kids. You can ask your best questions for another chance to win!)
