Birthdays on a Budget

Having children isn’t easy and it certainly isn’t cheap. You want to provide everything in the world and more for your kids, but the reality often is that you can only provide what your means allow you. It is hard work to provide for a family and it costs a lot of money.

“Having children is my greatest achievement. It was my saviour. It switched my focus from the outside to the inside. My children are gifts, they remind me of what’s important.”
Elle Macpherson does a great job at capturing the emotion of being a parent in a single line.

So what do you do when your children’s birthday comes along? Do you go all out or do something small? Do you make it a grand occasion or do you decide on a small intimate gathering? What are the deciding factors in what you do? Nobody wants to say that budget is a component when setting out a celebration for the most important little person in your life; however it sadly is a deciding factor in most cases.
