$50 Gift Card Giveaway: How Do You Cut Back?


Even cleats are expensive!

UPDATE: Congratulations to our CafeMom winner, revathy!

When you were a brand new mommy, you thought to yourself, "My kid is perfect, but man, is she expensive!" Now that kid is growing like weed and you're like, "Okay, my kid isn't exactly perfect, but she's mine and...when is she gonna get a job?!" 

Just kidding of course, but most of us agree that the rising costs of raising an older child is out of control. Food alone can wipe you out. Don't even mention supplies, clothes and extracurricular stuff like ballet classes or the soccer team.


That's why all March long the Daily Buzz Get Real Recession Guide is here to help you find cost saving-ideas and strategies.

But here's something even better---free cash! That's right, here's your chance to win a $50 gift card from Target. Spend it on your kids...or yourself! Woo Hoo!

To enter, tell me ...

What have you cut back on to save on child-related expenses?
