I’m sharing #Luvs in my life as part of a LUVs sponsored series for Socialstars™
No one told me that going from two to three children would be such a drastic change and while we love our third we have had to make a lot of changes. Like keeping a family budget, you totally splurge on your first baby buying plenty of unnecessary things and by your third you’re just thankful for a clean diaper and some hand me downs. Keeping a budget as a family is important and there’s some things we’ve learned along the ways.
3 Simple Tips For Keeping A Family Budget
