Baby On Board? How To Save On Everything
Newborn baby smell, snuggles with your little guy and enjoying all those important ‘firsts’.
Those initial, two precious years are full of enough adventure and magic to keep any new parents occupied. But it’s not just the here and now that moms and dads should be thinking about—your baby may be tiny today, but it’s important to plan for a time when their fingers and toes won’t fit in the palm of your hand anymore.
Responsibility for your kids means teaching smart spending and saving habits, as well as saving for your child’s education.
Easy for us to say? Well, ATB Financial is here to help. ATB knows that between diapers, daycare and the (endless) clothes your little one is growing out of, it isn’t always easy to save for the future. But just because those first years can be tricky, especially if your income is lower, that doesn’t mean your saving should suffer.
So they’ve come up with the Alberta Baby Bundle. Sign up now and you’ll instantly receive access to current discounts and savings in your inbox every 4-6 weeks.
New Alberta parents can save money and support Alberta businesses like Rocky Mountain Soap, Montana’s, AMA and Goo-Goobaby.com. Plus, there are tips for budgeting, saving and smart spending from ATB and all their partners.
What can you expect if you’re expecting? Soon-to-be parents can also sign up for the Alberta Baby Bundle and start saving today.
Sure, we all know that saving is smarter—but it helps to have a little something to get you started. Which is why ATB will give you a $150 savings booster if you open a new Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) for a child under 2. To get the savings booster, all you need to do is open a new RESP and set up a recurring transfer of at least $20 a month.
And, because of government savings grants, $150 is more like $180. We call that a total win for Alberta parents and their young families!
They’ll always be your baby, but they won’t stay little forever. So the sooner you start saving, the more your kids will thank you later.
