it feels impossible to save money after having just 1 kid. I'm working a $2.5k job and so is my husband. Our income barely covers everything. Is there any advice that you could give to us apart from just setting aside money every month? we're worried right now. On a good month we only manage to save about $800. Is that enough?

I would say $5k per month is quite comfortable for a family of 3. Of coz it dep on ur needs n wants. For me, cooking at home definitely saves more than eating out. Going to a govt Sch is cheaper than private. We eat out only twice a month n the rest of the time, just do simple cooking. If my hub is working, we take bus/ mrt than taxi. Going out parks, museums, playground which are free can be v fun for family. Go carousel, motherhood forum to get cheaper deals. Normally, I save here n there but spend a little bit more on baby stuff.
