Having a kid ain’t cheap. In fact, a report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated that it will cost a middle-income married couple $233,610 to raise a child to the age of 17. AMC So it costs money to raise one of these cuties. But can you afford it? Flickr: somedragon2000 / Via Creative Commons Well, here's some cool news: A new tool by career website Zippia will let you know: "Yes!" or "No!" zippia.com The tool is meant for first-time parents (so if you’re thinking about having a second, third, or Duggar-level addition, this probably won’t work). TLC Since I already have kids, I tried it out with an imaginary couple, Jane and Bert Robertson. Nbc / NBCU Photo Bank And before you start, no, that isn’t Monica and Chandler from Friends in the photo. It's The Robertsons. They get that all the time, though. To use the tool, you have to plug in some of your deets: income, household status, region, insurance info, whether you plan to save for college, and monthly debt.

Probably not. Dreamworks One concern I had: The tool doesn't take varying cost-of-living by city into account. It only asks for your "region" (either Northeast, South, Midwest, West), and while San Francisco and Tempe, Arizona are both in the "West" region, the cost-of-living in each city differs wildly. BUT...it’s still a cool tool and probably more accurate than the advice you'll get from your desperate-for-grandkid parents. Flickr: jackdorsey / Via Creative Commons You ready for this?
