Having two children can definitely be more exciting. But, if you and your spouse are planning to have a second child, don't forget to prepare your budget well. Because there are big expenses that will arise as family members increase.

Having a Second Child, What Big Expenses Do You Need to Prepare for?

You certainly already have an idea of ​​how much it costs to raise a child, because of the experience of having your first child. Apart from the same expenses as for your first child, start to prepare money for unexpected big expenses when you have your second child.

1. Housing expenses

With having a second child, there are parts of the house that may need to be renovated. If previously the house only had two bedrooms for you and your partner and first child, now the second child also needs their own bedroom. You may not need to renovate your house now. However, you can start preparing funds because the cost of renovating a house to add a bedroom is quite large.

2. Emergency funds for a family with two kids

Having a second child means more saving for family emergency funds. If previously the emergency funds only covered three people, now it has to cover four people.

3. Education costs for two children

According to data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), school tuition fees increase every year by an average of 10 to 15 percent. Not only that, education costs are also experiencing inflation (reference: Kompas).

Therefore, be prepared to save money from now on. Not just for one child, but two children.

4. Daily or regular expenses

As family members increase, daily expenses will automatically increase. Take into account food and transportation costs, household needs, electricity and water consumption, and much more.

5. Sneaky expenses

Some expenses are often forgotten or not taken into account when having a second child. For example, family holidays and entertainment. Entrance tickets to tourist attractions, plane or train tickets, cinema tickets, all require an additional one when you have a second child.

Renovating your house because you want to build a room for your second child could be a financial goal that you plan from now on. Especially if your second child will only have their own room after reaching a certain age. For example, when your child are little, they can still sleep in the same room as their older sibling.

However, you and your partner can prepare the funds now so that when the time comes, the funds are ready.

For financial goals that will not be achieved in the near future, save the funds in a Jago Term Deposit. Choose the savings period.
