Mom and the Economy




These days, there’s very little positive news about the economy. Times are bleak and a lot of us are wondering when it’s going to get better! We wanted to ask moms just like you what they thought about the times we’re in, when they see a change happening, and the #1 way they were tightening their belts and saving money. The results were surprising!

Of over 1,200 moms polled on NewParent.com, this is what we found:

44% said they #1 way they are saving money is by NOT spending money on frivolous items, such as Starbucks and bottled water.

43.7% said they would be putting their pregnancy plans on hold because of the current state of the economy.

41.6% said they do not think the economy will get better before June, 2010.
