Essential money saving items every parent needs

Prevention is better than a cure as we all well know and when it comes to kids we need to have a fair few tricks up our sleeve. Preventing things form being ruined can save money over and over again but you have to spend a little first. I would really advise every parent consider buying/providing the following in order to safeguard carpets, painted wallsm, furniture, clothes, good shoes,etc.  I really believe if you spend a little in advance you can actually save yoursef a fortune
