With recent purchases for baby toys and other items, it has come to my attention that the amount of money spent on just batteries is amazing. I wanted to try and figure out how much money I may spend on batteries in the first year of the babies life. I tried to be very conservative with the numbers and based my research on peoples opinions/reports of battery usage with the toys that we currently have. This is certainly no where near a scientific calculation but fun none-the-less. These numbers will likely increase significantly in time when the amount of toys needing batteries increases. For now, I expect to spend at least $74.25 on just batteries in the first year.
