Be Prepared to Pay Up For a Babysitter Tonight

Going out on New Years Eve is always an expensive proposition, but it’s even more expensive if you’re a parent. That’s because you’re likely going to have to hire a babysitter, and if you can actually find one working, they will charge you through the roof. 

A report by Urbansitter finds the average cost of a babysitter on New Years Eve will be $16.43 an hour for one child, $18.86 for two, or $20.56 for three. Now if you spend four hours out ringing in the New Year that means you’ll likely be paying $65 more than on a regular evening. And that doesn’t even include extras, with 46% of parents saying they tip their sitter, while 80% will pay for things like dinner and transportation home.
