I have started using coupons to save money on the children's food and cleaning supplies. I am finding I can save almost 90% on cleaning supplies if I stock up with they are on sale and I use a coupon. I also have found great savings on healthy food using this website: http://savingsangel.com/amember/go.php?r=36668 Please use affiliate #36668 if you sign up. (Disclaimer, I do save some $ on my membership if you sign up under my #) But with the site I have cut my grocery bill in half! I feed healthy fresh foods to the kids that cost less than what I get reimbursed with the food program so that has become a money maker for me too!

www.123learncurriculum.com is an EXTREMELY inexpensive curriculum for you childcare at only $25/year! It is infinitely better than the "cookie-cutter" curriculums and saves you (and your families) a lot of money. You can also make your own cleaners with water, vinegar, and baking soda (depending on the use) or buy natural products. Budgeting helps tremendously, as does tracking your income and expenses in a financial-tracking program like Quicken or MS Money. Being organized means you won't be buying duplicates of items and will save time and stress. It's the little things that help!

Make sure to ask about sibling discounts if you are trying to find care for more than one children. A lot of dayhome providers I spoke to were willing to offer a bit of a discount for multiple children. And as we all know – every little bit counts!
