Do You Want to Blow $16,000 on Toys? Just Have a Kid.
Remember when we were kids, how we used to be entertained by just an empty tin can, or a stick and a piece of string? Waitaminute... That was my dad. Now I simply lie to my kids about being entertained by those things so they'll stop begging me for video games.
Your kids' toys are costing you a FORTUNE. According to a new study, the average family today will spend approximately $15,800 on toys for a child from birth until they turn 18. That's an average of $877 per year. And that's PER KID, not total . . . so two kids means $31,600 in toys.
